The body of a girl found Wednesday afternoon in a field not far from a Texas freeway has been identified as Adriana Coronado, police in Houston said Friday.
Adriana, 13, had been the subject of an Amber Alert after her father was found dead Sunday.
A news release from police said the body was found on a road not far from the Sam Houston Parkway. According to CNN affiliate KTRK, Adriana’s body was found by a gardener.
Walker County authorities have released a video of a man and a truck, both of interest in this case of a missing Houston-area girl. Her father was found murdered in Walker County.
Officials are asking for help from the public in identifying the man seen running from the truck.
Although his face may be distorted in the video, officials are urging the public to pay close attention to his gait as he runs, posture, body, and overall profile.
The location of the video was near I-45 and Enterprise Row in Conroe at 10:20 p.m. on March 13th .
Deputies believe Adriana Coronado may have been with her father when he was killed in rural north Walker County and they now believe she’s in danger.
Adriana’s mother, who is currently having surgery in Mexico, spoke anonymously to Click 2 Houston and said she had last spoken with her daughter on Friday.
She said she had called Adriana that evening and that the girl was with her father at the time and seemed happy.
The woman added that nothing had seemed wrong during the call, and that Adriana had planned to have friends over to the house on Saturday.
However, when those friends arrived they found that Adriana was not at home, it was reported.
Walker County investigators say he was found dead Sunday. His burned body was found, dumped near a ditch located along FM 2989 between I-45 and Highway 75.
Authorities believe he was shot to death.
His burned pickup truck was located near Conroe, about 45 miles south of where the body was found.
