Threat Received After Teen Girl Reported Missing in Edgecliff Village

Girl recorded on home surveillance system getting into car

The family of a teenage girl reported missing Friday says she is home safe.

Police confirmed she is home safe and now believe that she was never in any danger. No other information has been confirmed at this point.

The Tarrant County Sheriff's Department said Friday morning a teenage girl, 17-year-old Olivia Mathews, was last seen getting into a vehicle at about 6 p.m. Thursday and that her family received a threat after she disappeared.

Mathews was recorded on a home security system walking down the sidewalk near the corner of Beechcreek Drive and Hazelnook Road when the driver of a gold, four-door Chevrolet sedan, likely a 2000 to 2004 Impala, according to police, pulled up beside her.

Mathews then gets into the back seat of the vehicle and the driver pulls away. From the home surveillance video, three people, including the driver and Mathews, are visible in the car.

Deputies said someone then threatened the girl's parents, though they didn't elaborate further on the nature of the threat.
