Amber Alert from Texas: Elizabeth Rex Found

UPDATE:  Elizabeth was found at a trailer park in Harlingen.  According to the parents, who talked to My Fox Houston, Johnson was a friend who needed a place to stay, so they took him in. They told him to leave after they suspected he may have been having a physical relationship with Elizabeth.  Why they didn't report it to the police I do not know. 

Elizabeth went missing after telling her parents she was going to the mail box.  Now her parents, Jennifer Black and Patrick Rex, believe she may have left to meet up with Johnson, who they later found gave Elizabeth a cell phone so they could communicate. 

"Maybe she thought she would just be gone for a couple hours and he would bring her back," Elizabeth's mother, Jennifer Black said. "Obviously that's not what his intentions were."

When they went to her room they found a phone number and called it and Elizabeth answered, Patrick told FOX 26.

"I called that number. Lizzy answered.  I asked, Where you at?  Then the phone went dead like someone snatched it out of her hand or she hung up."

A few hours later they received a phone call and the "person" said, "You'll never see Lizzy again.  I've got her and where we are going you can't get across the checkpoint because you don't have an id. Come get me."

The police traced Johnson's cell phone and it led to his arrest and Elizabeth's recovery.
Elizabeth was returned home but her father was not allowed to meet her because Johnson accused him of of unknown inappropriate behavior around Elizabeth which I guess he must have thought gave him justification to take her.  CPS has to do an investigation before he is allowed to see her again.  Patrick was not concerned and knew he would be cleared.

Previous story: The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says Johnson was taken into custody for a kidnapping warrant that was issued for the abduction of Elizabeth Rex.

An Amber Alert was issued for Elizabeth Rex, 14 from Magnolia Texas  in Montgomery County.  Elizabeth has  Down syndrome and is also autistic and has a pre-development disorder.

Law enforcement officials believe the girl is in grave or immediate danger.

New trailer for Ben Affleck movie, Gone Girl

The trailer for the movie "Gone Girl" has been released.  Based on the best selling novel called Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn it is about a man that reports his wife missing.

What is different about this trailer is the music that accompanies it.  The song is called She usually sung by Charles Aznavour known as France's Frank Sinatra, who made it popular. I don't know who is singing the song on the trailer, but it brings something to this movie trailer that has never been done before.

The trailer is different if not odd, and the song is the primary star with Ben Affleck voice over's coming through a time or two. Watch the video above and tell me what you think.

 Dashawn McCormick from Anchorage went missing when he was two years old.  Dashawn was living with his father, Floyd, and when the police came to arrest him, on April 1, 2013, Dashawn was not in the home and the father refused to say where he was.  Dashawn is now 6-years-old boy.  Although the child lived in Anchorage, there are family ties to the Valley and there’s a chance McCormick could be in the Mat-Su, Holmes said.  Dashawn's mother is incarcerated.

James Irby: Missing from Memphis since 2013

James Irby, 55, from Memphis Tenn. has been missing since May 2013. 

Irby was on his cell phone when he was stopped by a Walls police officer on the corner of Highway 61 and Church Road in Walls, Miss. on May 4, according to WMC-TV. 

Irby was told to hang up the phone and when he didn't the officer discharged a stun gun, Walls Police Chief Gary Boisseau told Memphis ABC 24.  Irby ran into a wheat field with the police chasing him.  He disappeared and they never found him.

Boisseau also stated that Irby had marijuana and a prescription bottle with illegal narcotics in it. 

The family has searched the field for him as they don't think he would have gotten too far as he had prostate cancer.  Boisseau thinks he may have caught a ride out of town. 

But, there are some discrepancies in the story, according to Irby's mom, Ethel Allen, because she said she was told that he ran into a swamp not a field, because the traffic stop actually happened ¼ mile down the road, and that he was not shocked with a stun gun.

The police cash camera video shows the officer discharging the stun gun, but it does not show Irby being struck.     

His family is desperately seeking his whereabouts and if you have any information, please contact the police or leave an anonymous tip here.
