For the last week a family in Central Texas has been completely lost for ideas on the whereabouts of their teenage daughter that takes daily medication for a mental health diagnosis. The 16 year old girl walked away from the family house in Georgetown under normal circumstances on Sunday, July 30th, and has not returned home since.

The family is clearly going through some major shock and trauma right now with 3 other children, all boys, wondering where their sister is. Since Monday July 31st, the girl has been reported missing as a runaway with no other concrete information available to speculate why she has not been home in over a week.

The girl's name is Ava Zandra Harris, and this video contains recent photos:

Search efforts thus far has been unsuccessful in every attempt to gain Ava's location, and the media has now become involved in sharing the story of her vanishing. It is unknown if the Georgetown Police Department has elevated her status beyond runaway at this point, or have any leads into other possible theories.
