Police in Texas are searching for a mysterious woman who was ringing doorbells in the middle of the night and then disappeared.
What made this more than some late-night prank was the surveillance video from the home which showed the barefoot woman wearing just a T-shirt and underwear as well as what could be broken restraints around her wrists.
The chilling video was captured by a Montgomery resident’s security camera at around 3am on Friday August 24.
The woman appeared distressed, approached the doorbell quietly and left when no one answered the door right away at the Sunrise Ranch subdivision in Lake Conroe.
“I found that she had gone to all of her neighbors’ houses as well, but nobody could see her. By the time they got to the door, she was gone,” neighbor Sean Simmonds told KTRK.
“We were dead asleep in our beds. My husband was woken up by doorbell ring. It rang probably 20 to 30 times,” said one resident, who didn’t want to be identified, Click2Houston reported. By the time her husband got to the door, she said, the woman was gone.
“He walked outside no one was in sight. It’s like she disappeared in thin air,” she said.
“I’ve got a 9-year-old daughter at home. It worries me what’s going on in the neighborhood,” neighbor Branson Golson said.
Police have not yet identified the woman and no missing persons reports currently match her description. Authorities urged residents to exercise caution.
“Answer the door but call from the other side of the door don’t actually open the door. Unfortunately, times have changed from yesterday so you have to be very careful we have had a lot of home invasions,” Lt. Scott Spencer, with the Sheriff’s Office, said, according to Click2Houston.
“Numerous citizens in the state and outside have sent missing persons flyers suggesting the women in the video is a missing person from their area,” the Sheriff’s Office added. “Deputies and Detectives are reviewing these flyers for any similarities, but as of now none are believed to be the women in the video.”
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about the woman to contact them at 936-760-5800.
