DALLAS -- Dallas police are looking for a 15-year-old girl who they believe may have run away with a former teacher who is wanted for sexual assault.
Emelin Lazo, 15, was last seen at 8:30 a.m. Monday in the 12000 block of Noel Road. The girl had sent her mom a text message that said she wanted to be with Scott Paul Alcaraz, 27.
She has not been seen nor heard from since. Police say they believe Lazo is a runaway.
Alcaraz was fired from a Thomas C. Marsh Middle School in Dallas in April 2013 after he was charged with two counts of sexual assault. According to police, a 14-year-old girl said the former math teacher and assistant basketball coach had sex with her in a classroom at the school.
Lazo is described as a 15-year-old Hispanic girl, 5-feet tall, 120 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.
If you have any information regarding Lazo or Alcaraz, please contact the Dallas Police Department Youth Operations Unit at 214.671.4268.
