A 14-year-old child diagnosed with autism, down syndrome and various other health conditions was abducted and could be in the Harlingen area.
An Amber Alert has been issued after the 14-year-old was last seen on Monday in Magnolia, Texas, which is located about 44 miles northwest of Houston.
CBS affiliate KHOU reports the family believes she was taken by 51-year-old Randy Johnson.
"Even though she is at the age of 14, she's actually mind-wise that of a 5 to 6-year-old child," the child TMs mother said in an interview with KHOU.
The girl was playing outside and never returned to her Magnolia home, according to a Montgomery County Sheriff TMs Office press release.
Johnson TMs last known address is in Harlingen, the sheriff TMs office said in an advisory.
Johnson is 5 feet 6 inches, weighs about 135 pounds, has brown hair and hazel eyes.
Authorities believe the 14-year-old is in grave or immediate danger.
She was last seen wearing black pants, a grey tank top, red jacket and grey tennis shoes.
The girl is 5 feet and 1 inch tall and weighs about 113 pounds.
The brown haired, brown eyed girl has also been diagnosed with pre-development disorder, ADHD, bipolar disorder and Von Willerbrands disease.
The 14-year-old is known to suffer from occasional mental breakdowns when in a high-stress environment.
Anyone with information on the abduction is asked to call Montgomery County Sheriff TMs Office at 936-672-1992.
