Lauren Elizabeth Colvin Thompson, 32, of Carthage, Texas has been missing since January 10, 2019. Lauren called 911 at 2:24 p.m. and told them she was in a wooded area and someone was chasing her. The call cut out during the call.
The Panola County Sheriff’s Office used cell phone tower pings to go to the general area of where she was. Her car was found in a ditch off of FM1794, on an oil/gas company leased road, but Lauren was not found.
Authorities used dogs, UTV’s and even a heat-detecting drone but they never found Lauren. They plan to search again.
The police are not sure what happened to Lauren’s phone but are saying at this time they believe her cell phone battery ran down during the 911 call, reports Sheriff Lake in his press release. They also said it appeared as though she was confused and disoriented.
Lauren is 5′ 5″ tall , and weighing about 190 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes. Thompson was last seen wearing dark colored pants or leggings and a dark-colored hoodie, according to the sheriff’s office.
