(SEE COMMENT BELOW) Officials continue to search for a 17-year-old girl who ran away from her Williamson County home and could be in the Bexar-Wilson county area.
Allison Claire Gordon last was seen at approximately 10 p.m. June 19 at her family’s home near Jarrell. Williamson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Fred Thomas said, “We have exhausted all leads with negative results; her friends either chose not to disclose any information they have, or they legitimately do not have any information to share. This is an active case and we will continue to pursue any leads we get.”
Allison’s family previously lived in the Adkins area, where they were set to return June 21. Her mother, Tanya Gordon, said her daughter was excited about their move to a home on Oak Park Road and had been helping the family to pack. But a “bad decision” made a few days before the move prompted the teen to leave.
“She left a wonderful note,” Tanya Gordon said via telephone with the Wilson County News. “[Allison] said she was tired of hurting the people she loves and being a bad influence on her sisters. She said she wanted to go and fix herself on her own.”
Allison is described as a white female standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds. She has blondish-brown hair and brown eyes, and last was seen wearing pajamas and a camouflage baseball cap, and carrying a camouflage backpack and a black Justin bag.
Tanya Gordon said Allison left home without her cellular telephone and that she has no vehicle. Her checking account has had no recent activity. The family is anxiously awaiting Allison’s return. Her 19-year-old brother recently bought a yellow Labrador puppy for Allison, which the teen has not yet met.
“We miss you,” Tanya said. “Please, come home.”
The Heidi Search Center is assisting Allison’s family in the search. Spokesman Tranette Ledford urged anyone to report potential sightings.
“It’s not a crime to be a runaway, but it is a crime to harbor a runaway,” she said. “A runaway is as endangered as any other missing person. That is why if anyone thinks they have seen [Allison], or have allowed her to stay with them, they need to contact the sheriff’s department.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the Heidi Search Center at 1-800-547-4435 or the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at 512-864-8302.
Anonymous tips also can be furnished to Williamson County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-253-7867 or at wilcocrimetips.org.
