Van Zandt County authorities are searching for a teenage girl who went missing last week.
Charity Pulley, 17, was last seen on September 18 between 9:30 and 10 p.m. at her Grand Saline home.
Authorities say a window screen was removed from the outside of the house, and they feel she may be in danger.
Van Zandt County Constable Mickey Henson said he believes Charity had help opening the window, as it requires a screw driver to remove screws from the outside.
"Someone picked her up. The outside window was screwed on where someone would literally have to take a screwdriver and take the screws out to take the screen out. So someone was outside, and we know Charity opened up the window where they had access to her," Constable Henson said.
Authorities also believe she may have been meeting someone she met online. While investigating her computer, officials found multiple accounts on numerous dating sites. All of which, they say, she lied about her age, and used different names.
"She was talking online with other guys, so we don't know what that might have led too," Charity's father, Jewelus Pulley, said. "At first I was thinking that she was just making a date, but I believe it turned into something more than that when the person got there."
Charity is 4'11" and is 115 lbs.
If you have seen her or have any information please contact the Grand Saline Police Department or call (903) 962-5611.
