Search Resumes For Teketria Buggs, 12, Who Vanished From Couch

An Amber Alert issued for Teketria Buggs, 12, Sunday and remained in effect in Teketria Buggssoutheast Texas. She was last seen asleep on her couch at her home in the 9000 block of Johnson Road in Orchard late Friday night.

Teketria known by friends as Teeky Bugg, was last seen asleep on a couch at her home in the 9000 block of Johnson Road in Orchard late Friday night. She was reported missing at about 10 a.m. Saturday. None of her belongings, including a jacket, had been taken from the home.

On Monday night, Teketria’s mother told CNN’s Nancy Grace that she thinks someone Teketria trusted might have taken her.

Texas EquuSearch and the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department widened their search Tuesday morning near Teketria’s rural home and asked for help from the Texas Department of Transportation.

“They are going to help us, being guides. They know the ditches, and the bridges and the culverts,” EquuSearch founder Tim Miller told KPRC Local 2.

Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch also went on to describe the many search methods that they would have at their disposal to search for Teketria Buggs. TES Buggs

Dive teams searched the Brazos river Tuesday afternoon. Miller said divers are searching several areas of the water where sonar equipment detected something. Miller said searchers would use remote control airplanes, high-vision scopes, 4-wheelers and Sonar to search more than 12 acres of heavily wooded land and the Brazos River near her home.

“I don’t see where there is to go. We understand she’s scared to death of the dog. She won’t even go to her aunt’s house, which is right next door, when it was dark. So for her to take off and go to some place on her own, I think that’s out of the question,” EquuSearch founder Tim Miller told KPRC Local 2.

Description: Teketria is a black female, about 4 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 95 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes, and light brown skin. She was last seen wearing a red and white long-sleeved pullover shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information should call the Fort Bend County Sheriff?s Office at (281) 341-4665 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS.

Fort Bend Herald: Search for missing girl expands

The search for 12-year-old Teketria Buggs, who disappeared in Orchard Saturday evening, continued Tuesday morning with additional personnel joining the search.

A prayer vigil for Buggs will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at of the Pilgrim Journey Baptist Church, 2022 Ransom Road in Richmond, where Buggs is a member. Deacon Robert Willis will conduct the service, which is open to the public.

Search for missing girl focused on Brazos River


The search for a missing Fort Bend County girl moved to the water Tuesday as dive teams went in into the Brazos River.

Tuesday was an especially emotional day for the searchers and volunteers.

Although the town of Orchard has a population of only 400, they have big hearts. Letters from the girl’s schoolmates, thanking searchers for their efforts, inspired investigators and searchers.

Several veteran deputies wiped away tears as they read the letters posted on the board by volunteers.

Searchers continued to search on land and in the water.

Investigators said they didn’t have any new leads, but divers were concentrating on one area of the river. They said sonar had picked up some images Monday.

The river is about a mile from Buggs’ home, where she was last seen sleeping on her couch.

“It’s been successful in the past. We’ve done many, many dives where it ended up that it was an old barrel or something like that,” said Tim Miller of EquuSearch.

Volunteers came back again to continue the ground search on horseback and four-wheelers.

Teke Buggs`s mother on Nancy Grace with emotional plea for her missing daughter

NANCY GRACE: 12-Year-Old Missing, Teketria Buggs


December 5, 2005

Nancy Grace interview’s LARONALD FOY, the mom of the missing 12 year old, Teketria Buggs. In an emotional interview Teke’s mom pleas for th safe return of her daughter.

FOY: No, she`s in the 3rd grade because she missed too many days out of school last year. So she`s in the 3rd grade, but she`s a smart girl. Last year, she passed the highest in her school (INAUDIBLE) She`s really, really bright. She`s a really bright girl, really, really bright. And I just can`t see somebody coming in my grandmother`s home and taking her and her not trying to put up a fight or anything. She`s too bright. I just feel like if she had time to put on her shoes, whoever she left with, she trusted him. She knew (INAUDIBLE) her heart.

And all I`m asking is, if you have her, please bring her back to me! I can`t make it without her! Please bring her back to me, please!

The rest of the interview:

But first, tonight, please help us. We are searching for a 12-year- old missing Texas girl. She disappeared from her own home, Orchard, Texas, Friday, last seen sleeping on her own sofa.


LARONALD FOY, MISSING GIRL`S MOTHER: She (INAUDIBLE) to go to her aunt`s house right here without her sisters and her brothers. So for her just to get up and put on her shoes, that`s impossible for me to believe. God himself would have to come and tell me that.


GRACE: Very quickly, I want to go straight out to the news director with KFNC, Laurie Kendrick. Laurie, bring us up to date.

LAURIE KENDRICK, KFNC NEWS DIRECTOR: Hi, Nancy. How`re you doing? Well, the Amber Alert has been issued for Teketria Buggs. She`s age 12, as you mentioned, last sleeping on the couch in her living room in the small rural community of Orchard in Fort Bend County, maybe about 30 miles southwest, due southwest of Houston proper. Her family issued — or reported her missing around 10:00 AM Saturday morning.

And what has authorities so baffled, Nancy, is what they`re not seeing. They found no signs of struggle, no signs of foul play. And what`s more disconcerting is they have absolutely no indication that a crime occurred, and they can`t find this 12-year-old child to save their lives, despite the fact we have quite a few experienced searchers checking about a 12-mile area not far from the community of Orchard. The land was adjacent to the Brazos River. It`s a very woody are. But so far, absolutely nothing, and that is perhaps the most disconcerting sign about this entire event.
