AUSTIN (KXAN) — A 10-year-old girl has been abducted from a southwest Austin elementary school, Austin Independent School District says.
AISD says Angelia Jordan was allegedly abducted by a family member from Oak Hill Elementary School, located at 6101 Patton Ranch Rd., near the intersection of US 290 and West William Cannon Drive.
The suspect vehicle is a gray/green 2002 Ford van with license plate number BSD3195. The district says the girl was abducted at 3:03 p.m. and the Department of Public Safety says the girl was taken by her mother.
Jordan is described as white, 5-feet tall and weighs 60 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, black pants and white shoes.
AISD police are investigating the case. Anyone with information on the missing girl is asked to call 512-414-1703.
The school district initially said an Amber Alert is in the process of being approved; however, DPS said it would not issue one because the case did not meet the criteria.
AISD explained that DPS is telling regional law enforcement about Angelia so they can actively look for her.
A parent and PTA member at Oak Hill explained to KXAN that teachers escort their students to buses and to the pickup location after school, typically three or four teachers are staffed at the pick-up area to make sure all kids get home safely.
Editor’s Note: AISD has sent out a correction that the girl’s name is Angelia, not Angelica.
