Texas EquuSearch suspends search for missing 32-year-old woman

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – On Tuesday around 9 a.m., Texas EquuSearch began searching for a missing 32-year-old woman who was last seen on Sept. 19. Early in the evening, they suspended the search.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office told EquuSearch to stand down for an unknown reason.

Texas Equusearch searched a two-mile radius from where Amalia lives and her sister's apartment. The two were very close.

Amalia Alexander was last seen in the 18000 block of Westfield Place around midnight, police said.

She was last seen leaving her sister's apartment, heading to her own apartment a short distance away, according to reports.

"I just keep calling it (her phone) though just to hear her voice," Laura Alexander, Amalia's sister, said. "What she had one when she we left my house that night it was on her dresser so that means she changed clothes and had to leave."

Her vehicle was found at her apartment complex, searchers said.

"Like she said, they're very close, it's like this (puts two fingers together) so if they like this (pulls fingers apart), something's wrong," William R. Williams, Amalia's father, said.

Alexander's clothing description is unknown, but she has pink nail polish on her fingers and toes.

Alexander has very dark brown hair below her shoulders, and she also has a mole above her upper lip, below her left nostril. She has a tattoo on her back, and a large tattoo on the lower right / front of her body stomach area.

Amalia works at a medical rehab facility and takes classes at Houston Community College, but she didn't make it to either on the 20th.

"I don't think she left of her own free will. There's too many circumstances in her disappearance tend to put us the other way," Frank Black, Texas Equusearch, said.

If anyone has any information you are asked to contact the Harris County Missing Persons Unit at 713-755-7427, or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-8477.
