Authorities are still searching for the missing Highland Home teenager, Myra Alissia Freeman. Freeman went missing around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 13, from her home in Highland Home (Magnolia Shores).

“She said she was going to take out the garbage from her room because she had cleaned her room up Sunday. I was in there cooking when she came through the kitchen and she never did come back inside. We came out looking for her. We were calling her name and she never answered. We looked down the roads and in the woods,” said her mother, Vickie Metcalf. “We’ve just been looking for her. We don’t know where she went. We don’t know what happened.”

The Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office as well as the Luverne Police Department have searched the surrounding areas of Highland Home and have also extended the search to Luverne and other neighboring cities.
