Two Houston, Texas teens who went missing on August 16 after allegedly sneaking out to rendezvous with a man they met on Facebook are back home today. Liana Andrews, 16, and Kacie Watson, 14, were found nearly 200 miles away from home in San Antonio over the weekend.
While hanging out Andrews’ home, the teens secretly took her mother’s car to meet up with the mysterious man. After they left, they sent Andrews’ grandmother a text message saying they’d be back the following afternoon, but never returned. The car was found abandoned in San Antonio, but the girls were nowhere in sight.
Because the girls left willingly, police categorized their disappearance as a runaway, but their families feared the worse.
“This is not a runaway case,” Laina’s mother, Lana Turner, told KHOU. “My daughter and her friend are in danger. I know that and I want them found.”
The teens were found in San Antonio begging for money outside of a local Wal-Mart. Their families are happy to have them home, however questions still remain about their disappearance.
