ALLEN, Texas — The Allen Police Department is asking for the public's assistance identifying a person of interest in their search for a missing 11-year-old girl.
11-year-old Maria "Grace" Villanueva was reported missing on Sunday at approximately 6 a.m. in the 500 block of Hightrail Drive, according to the Allen Police Department.
Police say they have been in contact with Villanueva, have been able to confirm she is not injured, but have not been able to determine her exact location.
Sunday night, police released a photo from an officer's body-worn camera they say is a person of interest in their search for Villanueva.
The body-worn camera however, did not capture images of the person's face so police are now asking for the public's assistance identifying the individual in the photo. Police believe he is a mid-teens male who possibly lives in the Presidio Apartments in Allen, Texas, and is known to wear the jersey in the picture frequently.
Villanueva is described by police as having dark brown shoulder length hair and was last seen wearing a striped shirt, pink shorts, and pink sandals.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Allen Police Department at (214) 509-4321.
