A 15-year-old Spring, Texas high school student vanished on the afternoon of Oct. 17 leaving no clues to help locate her.
Alyssa Schaefer was last seen speaking with a Hispanic boy across the street from Klein Collins High School, where she is a student, after the school day had ended, KTRK reports.
Alyssa normally took the school bus home in the afternoon, but she did not arrive as expected the day of her disappearance, according to her mother, Victoria Schaefer. Her phone has since been turned off.
Her family is desperate to find out what happened, going so far as to try and hack into her social media accounts.
Victoria made an emotional plea for the return of her daughter the morning of Oct. 18.
“Everybody is so worried about you, we want you to come home,” she said. “You’re not in trouble, I just want to give you a great big hug and hold you… Please be safe.”
The last time Victoria saw Alyssa was the evening of Oct. 16 when she kissed her before they went to sleep. As was normal, Alyssa got herself up for school the morning of her disappearance and left without seeing her family.
According to Alyssa’s friends, the boy she was speaking to after school was not known to them, nor do they know where she went that afternoon.
Victoria told KHOU that Alyssa is normally very naive, attends ROTC, is in the choir and goes to church.
"I just want her to come home safe," she said. ”I don't know where she is, so if anyone knows anything please reach out to me on my Facebook page or to the police. And just please, Alyssa, we love you so much and we just want you to come home safe."
Alyssa was last seen wearing black leggings, black boots, and a red flannel shirt. She wears braces with pink bands.
The police and Alyssa’s family are asking for the public’s help. Anyone with information should call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000.
