Search for Tiaundra Kae Christon missing daughter comes up short:
College Station Criminal Investigation division launched a search for the missing girl, which included checking nearby homes and backyards. Police dogs were brought in but failed to find Hazana’s scent. Drones helped widen the search beyond the park. Divers were used to go through the pond located inside the park, in case Hazana had fallen in. The search came up empty.
Hazana is described as a black female, approximately 3′ tall and weighing 28 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. The 2-year-old was last seen wearing an olive green jacket, with a black “girl squad” shirt, cream-colored pants, dark pink shoes, and a purple beanie.
Police say Hazana also has a dark-colored birthmark around her big toe on her left foot.
Hazana’s father, Taboerick Anderson, since split up with the girl’s mother, told KTRK-TV that Christon started acting strange and avoiding him within the last couple months. The father added he ‘didn’t see her doing anything like this’ when the two were a couple and is ‘blindsided’ by her arrest.
The father revealed Christon had recently begun dating someone new. Anderson said officers had searched the boyfriend’s apartment. KBTX-TV confirmed police statements that they were interviewing potential witnesses and that Christon’s boyfriend had been included on that list.
Of note, an online search revealed Tiaundra Christon previously embroiled with legal woes. In November 2012, she pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct in Brazos County, Texas. The case type was labeled as ‘Criminal Non-traffic.’ She was ordered to pay a fine.
