Mariah Garcia went missing from her home in San Antonio on June 16, 2016.  Many young teens are lured from their homes and may be harbored by an adult and possibly exploited by them. The Texas Department of Public Safety Missing Persons Clearinghouse received 52,202 missing person reports in 2018, 40,175 of which were juveniles. CCOA is providing this month-long public service campaign at no cost.  This is one element of CCOA’s ongoing partnership with Texas Center for the Missing and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  It is part of a larger campaign to raise awareness of local missing children in four major Texas markets: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and El Paso.

Editors please note:  we will pre-set a freeze time for the missing child’s message for video or still photography during the press event.  Should you need the message frozen for additional stories please coordinate by calling 281.748.3095.
