ALVIN, Texas — An Amber Alert has been issued for 13-year-old Elizabeth Catherine Smith.
Police are looking for 38-year-old Jose Angel Ponce in connection with her abduction. He was last seen in Alvin driving a black 2010 Chevrolet C1500 with Texas license plate AT2-2261.
Law enforcement officials believe Smith is in grave danger. She was last seen on Monday and is not related to the suspect.
According to investigators, the two may have met online through social media. Text messages between the missing girl and the suspect were sent the night before she disappeared.
Smith lives with her grandmother, and her grandmother found a note that said, "Going to Cali, love you." She later called her aunt and left a message that said she was in Cleveland with two guys and they were headed to California. They reportedly got a motel room for the night.
Investigators are working with Cleveland law enforcement and also went out there to check all the motels, but they found no new info.
If you have any information regarding this abduction call the Brazoria County Sheriff’s office at (979) 864-2392.
