On Aug. 22, 2013, a car that two missing Houston teens were last seen riding in was found in San Antonio, Texas, according to My San Antonio.
Alan Bernstein, a spokesperson for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, said Kacie Watson, 14, and Liana Andrews, 16, were last seen on Aug. 17 when they voluntarily left Houston in the vehicle.
The girls had been at a sleepover the night before at a home in Cypress, but vanished after heading to the mall on Saturday afternoon, according to News 4 San Antonio.
The 2001 Gold Chrysler Sebring, apparently belonging to Liana’s family, was located near the Bexar County Courthouse. The girl’s belongings were still intact, but the teens were nowhere to be found.
Although the two girls have been called endangered runaways, Kacie’s grandmother told News 4 that she, along with those who know the teens, do not believe they would have run away.
She told the Huffington Post, “They are normal teenagers – not perfect kids – but taking the car and driving that far is way out of character for them.”
She added, “…we think they were meeting someone from Facebook,” noting she is not allowed to discuss any details about the case due to the ongoing investigation.
“We don’t have any facts, but we’re beginning to think that this was an abduction,” she stated.
Liana is described as being 5 feet 2 inches and weighing around 100 pounds. She has a scar on the bottom of her right foot, while Liana is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 132 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink long-sleeve button-down shirt, brown leggings and brown shoes. Both girls have brown hair and eyes.
