Plano Police Continue Search for Missing Woman

The Plano Police Department asked for the public's help finding a Fort Worth woman missing since early Saturday morning.

Christina Marie Morris, 23, is described as white, 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing about 100 pounds, with brown eyes and blonde hair.

"We are just waiting for her to come home. I just need her to call me and tell me to come get her," said Christina's stepmother Anna Morris.

According to police, Christina Morris had been visiting friends on the 5700 block of Scruggs Way. She was last seen early Saturday morning walking with a friend into a parking garage a few blocks away at 5715 Legacy Drive.

Police said officers checked the area and found Christina Morris's silver Toyota Celica.

Christina Morris's employer told police that she has not been to work and detectives determined that she has not contacted friends or relatives. Police said she has not returned home and all attempts to locate her have been unsuccessful.

On Thursday, the Morris family was at the garage where her car was found.

"It is just tough," said Christina's father, Mark Morris.

The family said Christina Morris is always in touch with them, but hadn't been as much the past few days.

"We didn't think anything of it because it was Labor Day weekend. People have things going on," said Anna Morris.

Thursday evening, a search team of more than 50 volunteers, mostly made up of friends, fanned out to scour a wooded area selected by Plano police.

The search area is bounded by Parkwood Boulevard and Hedgcoxe Road and is located a short distance away from the parking garage where Morris' car was found.

Police requested the team of volunteers to help locate any potential evidence or belongings of Morris' that may have been discarded by an assailant.

"Hopefully we're gonna find her alive. That's the main hope that we have. But there's always the unknown," said Quinn Meredith, who referred to Morris as a "friend-of-a-friend."

Meredith volunteered to use his all-terrain vehicle to search the fields and along the tree lines.

One group of volunteers located some clothes in a field, which will be tagged as potential evidence, according to David Tilley, with the Plano Police Department. The clothes, however, do not match the description of what Morris was last known to be wearing.

Plano police asked that anyone with information about Christina Morris contact them at 972-424-5678.
