At just 12 and 13 years old, Tianny Granja and Mary Tran Le might be considered besties.
Family says the friendly duo seemingly vanished tuesday morning.
Tianny’s Mother Diane Gomez says, “I don’t know why they would do something like that … I don’t know.”
Tianny’s mother Diane Gomez broke down when we spoke with her.
She says the two never made it to Owens Middle School.
She fears they’re playing a stupid prank called the 48 hour challenge.
Diane Gomez says, “I don’t think she’s capable of doing that challenge. But I don’t know.”
The goal is for kids to disappear from social media and hide in real life.
Both of the girls’s phones are now off.
Diane Gomez says, “You turn off everything. Tianny is always on social media. She’s always making videos.”
When your child is missing, the worry can spread fast.
The mind can go to a dark place.
Diane Gomez says, “There’s also human trafficking. Tianny is a bright girl. They could’ve kidnapped them. I don’t know.”
In a statement to Alief ISD says they are working closely with Houston PD, writing, “We are extremely concerned for their well-being and ask the community to please help in locating the girls. If you have any tips to share with law enforcement, please contact 832-394-1816.”
Diane Gomez says, “Whoever knows anything, please help. Take them to a police station.”
Houston Police say — right now — the girls are considered to be missing.
There are no leads on their whereabouts.
Police are asking for the public’s help.
