Please Help 4 East Texas Families Find Their Teens Who are Still Missing
Its never easy writing about the subject of kids that have gone missing. A lot of the time, we have no idea of the circumstances around their disappearance. They could have run away, they could have been kidnapped or they could have been taken by the other parent during a visitation. No matter the circumstance, so far in September, three families reported their children missing in Texas. While it's heartbreaking enough that teens have gone missing this month, four East Texas families are still looking for their teen. A family in Canton, one in Jacksonville and two families in Lufkin, Texas are still looking for their kids.
