UPDATE: Local law enforcement has confirmed that the Lawton teen was located by officials in Houston, Texas and has been detained until arrangements can be made for her return home.
LAWTON - Alize Becerril, a 17-year-old teen from Lawton, has been missing from her home near SE 90th Street since June 14, 2018. According to her mother, April Becerril, her daughter walked out into the field behind their home last Thursday night and has not been seen by her family or friends since then.
The Comanche County Sheriff's Office originally planned to perform a search of the field behind the family home by plane early this morning, but a lead came in last night that caused the operation to be postponed for now. Sheriff Kenny Stradley says all local attempts to locate the girl are still being made, while they also work with officials out of state about a lead involving a debit card that may possibly help locate the teen.
April suspects that her daughter had stopped taking her medication for schizophrenia several days prior to her disappearance and the girl did not take her prescribed medication with her when she left, nor did she take her cell phone or any money.
Alize is five-foot, four inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She has visible scars on both arms, a handmade tattoo on her left arm that says AK47, three symbols tattooed on the back of her neck and may be wearing black framed glasses. Her mother indicated that she may have shaved the sides of her head and dyed her remaining hair red before she vanished.
