Detectives finally finished their intense 36-hour search for the 15-year-old reported missing in Magnolia Tuesday night. As Detectives described the time spent and the effort along with a 4-mile foot chase the sleeplessness showed. Montgomery County Detectives after spending Tuesday searching the woods with K-9’s from Harris County and assisted by Montgomery County Search and Rescue the kept on going into the daylight hours of Wednesday. TDCJ responded with their Blood Hounds and detectives went house to house looking for anyone who possibly had security video. Tuesday afternoon they learned that the teen had been talking to a 17-year-old in the Dobbin area. They started pressing for more answers and decided to go up to the Dobbin area and search. As they were enroute the teen who had been staying voluntarily with three males fled the location along the railroad tracks. An alert citizen was what helped bring the search to a close. A woman along with her daughter and husband were returning home from dinner close to 7:30 pm when she noticed a young lady walking along the tracks. She indicated to her husband the female looked like the missing teen. They live along the railroad tracks that actually go south to Magnolia. As they pulled into their driveway they noticed the female appeared to be hiding behind a railroad signal box and in the weeds. As her husband and daughter moved closer the husband saw the logo on the back of the teens’ hoodie and immediately called 911. Within minutes detectives arrived and directed a helicopter to the area. All railroad traffic was stopped. It wasn’t long before they spotted the teen and had to pursue her on foot along the loose rocks of the railroad tracks. The female made it about 4-miles before she was reached. She was returned home to her parents. As officials headed home for a well-deserved rest they wanted to thank the community for their help, TDCJ, Montgomery County Precinct 5 Constable Chris Jones and his office, Magnolia Fire Department, Montgomery County Search and Rescue, FBI, Texas Rangers, and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Division.
