Authorities said Harris County Precinct 4 Deputy Constables were sent to 21000 block of Cottage Stream for a welfare check on Thursday.

Deputies said they met with Crawford’s family who said she had not been seen or heard from in more than a week.

Relatives told authorities that Crawford dropped her child off at school on or about Oct. 4, and did not return to pick her up at the end of the school day.

Authorities said relatives told them that Crawford was living with a convicted felon at the residence on Cottage Stream and he has been extremely violent to her in the past. KPRC 2 has not confirmed this information shared by police.

Deputies said they knocked at the door and identified Crawford’s boyfriend, whom authorities have not identified. Authorities said he was uncooperative and gave conflicting statements as to Crawford’s whereabouts.

Deputies learned he had an active parole violation warrant and placed him under arrest. Deputies spoke to neighbors who advised they recently observed confrontations involving him and Crawford at the home. Deputies then conducted the welfare check inside Crawford’s home.
