HOUSTON - Texas Equusearch joined investigators to search for a missing teenage Katy girl.

Crews were searching in Walker County Wednesday.

Adriana Cavazos, the mother of the 14-year-old says she fears for her life and is not returning to the United States anytime soon.

Walker County investigators found Cavazos' husband's body Sunday afternoon. Their daughter Adriana Coronado, is missing.

Cavazos has been in Mexico recovering from surgery but says she is now afraid to return to her Katy home.

"Yes, in one way or another, I am afraid, I am because if they did this to my family that didn't have anything to do with anything, then how can I not be afraid for my life," she told Channel 2 by phone.

But even in the midst of her fear, Cavazos says she has not given up hope.

"I want thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes for my daughter to come back to me. I still ask for your help and please do not stop praying," she said.

Close friends of the girl gathered Wednesday in front of her apartment to hold a vigil and to pray for her safe return.

“Hopefully, God gives her a path to come out and say something to us,” said Melody Grimaldo.
