Texas authorities are looking for any clues to the whereabouts of a young girl who went missing earlier this week.
The mother of 12-year-old Cameron “CJ” Hernandez is pleading for anyone with information regarding her daughter to come forward.
Cameron was last seen around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night when she left to go jogging in their Corpus Christi apartment complex.
The girl and her mother recently moved from Harlingen in the Rio Grande Valley to Corpus Christi, where the mother says her daughter knew almost no one.
She is enrolled in 6th grade at Corpus Christi’s Tom Brown Middle School.
Cameron was last seen on the 4100 block of Brett Street wearing a white tank top, silver basketball shorts, and black Nike running shoes. She was also using a Camelback water carrier with a camouflage pattern.
She is described as a Hispanic female, about 5 feet 1 inch tall, weighs approximately 100 pounds. Cameron has naturally brown hair, but it is currently dyed red. She has brown eyes.
Currently police do not believe Cameron had any reason to run away. Anyone with information is urged to call Corpus Christi police detectives at (361) 886-2670 – ask for Sean McFarland or James Lerma.
