Good News Following Weekend Search
A nearly three-hour search for a missing brother and sister that involved hundreds of community volunteers and police Saturday night ended on a high note. The siblings had been at church with their grandmother the whole time.
Karly Tatum Morris, 8, and her brother Terry Anglin, 5, were in the front yard of their grandparents’ house in the 2500 block of 37th Avenue when they went missing at about 6:30 p.m., Texas City police Chief Robert Burby said.
Soon after, Texas City police issued a phone alert to residents and set up a grid search in the Moses Lake neighborhood.
It wasn’t long after that hundreds of residents from the neighborhood arrived to help with the search.
All along, police were trying to reach the children’s grandmother who was at church.
At about 10:20 p.m., the grandmother pulled up to the house with the children safely in the back seat. They had been with her the whole time. Her mobile phone was turned off because she was in church.
The children’s mother, Tina Emert, said the pair had been dropped off at their grandparents while other family members attended a wedding in League City.
