Alexis Crawford, a 21-year-old senior at Clark Atlanta University, has been reported missing after last being seen in her apartment on Wednesday, October 30. Her mother also spoke on the phone with Alexis on Wednesday, saying her daughter “seemed to be in good spirits and was laughing.” After Crawford did not show up for work or class, her family reported her missing.
According to reports, Crawford went to a liquor store with her roommate before the two returned back to their apartment.
11Alive reports Crawford had asked her sister to send her money through CashApp earlier in the day.
From the report:
She said she took her to the store at around 11:30 p.m. and returned home. She said she last saw Alexis at around 12:30 a.m. before the roommate went to her bedroom for the night. The roommate told police that Alexis was not in the residence the following morning when she left for class. She said the front door was locked and Alexis wasn’t in the living room or bedroom.
“She’s a beautiful girl. She’s a beautiful, fun-loving little girl,” her great-aunt Brenda Crawford told reporters, via the Daily Mail. “She’s the type of girl that when she sees you, when you come in the house, the first thing she’s going to do is sit on your lap and give you a hug. She’s a sweet girl.”
Her father, Bobby Wright, added: “I just want you to come home safe – I hope God is walking with you and please prevent any evil that comes her way – and we’re here for you.”
Alexis reportedly had a “separate incident” on October 26, but they did not elaborate. Her friends, however, said that Alexis had been sleeping in the living room since the 26th because she “wasn’t comfortable sleeping” in her bedroom.
When Alexis went missing, her phone, identification card and debit card were no longer in the apartment.
