  • Details of Disappearance
    Michelle Prasek was reportedly last seen by her mother in their home near The Woodlands, Texas, less than an hour before she was to leave home to get on a bus for school. Michelle may have been on the school premises that day, but she did not attend classes. The next day Michelle's mother reported her missing to local authorities in Montgomery County, Texas. Michelle may have a green backpack, a sleeping bag, a handmade patchwork quilt and her orange Tabby cat with her.

    Michelle has had no prior history of running away and no trouble with the law or school. She was a good student academically. Michelle's parents are divorced and, prior to her disappearance, she was looking forward to spending the Christmas holidays with her father in Kingsville, Texas. Investigators are treating her case as a criminal case.
