MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WNCN) — A teen girl who has been missing a week is just now starting to get media attention outside of her home state.
Alissia Freeman, age 17, vanished while she was taking out her family’s trash on the afternoon of Dec. 13, the NBC TV station in Montgomery, Al. reported.
Alissia lives with her family on Dailey Road in a housing community called Magnolia Shores in Highland Home, about 10 miles south of Montgomery.
Her family reported her missing later that evening, WSFA-TV reported.
“She said she was going to take out the garbage from her room because she had cleaned her room up Sunday. I was in there cooking when she came through the kitchen and she never did come back inside,” her mom Vickie Metcalf told the TV station.
“We came out looking for her. We were calling her name and she never answered. We looked down the roads and in the woods. We’ve just been looking for her. We don’t know where she went. We don’t know what happened,” Alissia’s mom also said.
Her family also told WSFA that Alissia had never disappeared before. Alissia only had her cell phone with her when she vanished.
Authorities in Crenshaw County are “working around the clock on the case,” WSFA reported.
Alissia Freeman is 4’11” and 120 lbs. with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a crimson colored Alabama shirt, blue jeans and a pair of black and white Converse tennis shoes.
