Tracy said the last time she saw her daughter Zoe was last Sunday right after work. She said Zoe works at the Dollar Tree on Fairmont near Allen-Genoa Rd. She got a ride home right before 9 p.m.

"She came in and said I love you goodnight to the both of us," said Byrd. 

But the next morning her mom says she was gone.

"I went straight to her room, first thing like I always do and she wasn’t there," said Byrd. 

Her mom says Zoe left her wallet behind, her charger, and her house keys. She even left the door unlocked, Something her mom says is very unusual.

"Maybe someone lured her outside. Maybe she went out to sit on the playground and make a phone call I don’t know," said Byrd. "I believe that she went outside with every intention of coming back in. I don’t think she intended to leave here."

Texas EquuSearch has joined police in the search. They tell us they’ve been looking for her but so far they’re out of leads.
