19-year-old woman vanishes after going on blind date with stranger she met online
SPLENDORA, Tex. (KIAH) - Talk about a doomed date.
Montgomery County authorities say 19-year-old Donna Kay Cloud has vanished after going on a blind date!
Officials say Donna went on the date with an unknown man about a week ago, and now no one has seen or heard from her since last Wednesday night!
"I found out that she didn't even know the guy after she'd already left," the girl's father, Darrell Beaty, said. "And I made the comment to her through her messaging that that's not a very smart thing to do."
"She said, 'I'm going to get Redbox movies, go back to his house," Donna's stepmother Linda Hornback recalled. "She said, 'I will probably be back in the morning-- if you don't hear from me by 2am -- call the cops.'"
"We don't know what he was driving, who he was....we never saw a vehicle, never saw a face, never really heard a name," Beaty revealed.
Law enforcement deputies believe Donna may have met the man online, but so far his identity is unknown.
Some friends of hers claim the man was from Liberty, Texas-- and the couple left in his car but they don't know what type.
Friends and family have been flooding Facebook with flyers and posts pleading for any information or help in finding Donna.
"Something's better than nothing at this point," Hornback affirmed.
Investigators think the date may have taken place at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant near Kingwood, but even that has not been confirmed.
Authorities say they are working multiple leads and trying to leave no stone unturned in locating the Splendora woman.
"I don't know what I feel. You know, I feel helpless," Donna's father shared. "I don't want a break down and cry, but I don't know what I feel. Just...I want my daughter home."
