Athena Presley Missing case: Explained
Texas’ WISE COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) — Athena Presley Monroe Strand, 7, who vanished from her Wise County home on the evening of Nov. 30 is the subject of an extensive search.
About 150 volunteers and dozens of law enforcement personnel are searching Strand’s neighborhood for the girl. They started working on Wednesday night and didn’t stop until Thursday. “Look at the size of the crowd. We need to rely on each other for this because we are all out here together, regardless of what we are going through. We are all moms “said Chasity Allerkamp, a volunteer.
They initially looked at a six-acre area surrounding Strand’s home. However, it has now been broadened to include Fort Worth police officers on foot and horses, the FBI, and the Texas Department of Public Safety. Additionally, several K-9 units, heat-seeking drones, and ATVs were employed.

Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin stated, “We’re looking at everything from a criminal aspect or just a missing child standpoint so we’re not going to leave anything unturned and we’re not going to put the blinders on either.” “There are many possibilities, and we are considering them all,” the speaker said.
The frigid temperature is another factor that worries law enforcement officers. Anyone with information on Strand’s whereabouts is asked to call the Wise County Sheriff’s Office at 940-627-5971.
