An 8 year old little girl from Missouri has been reported missing according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Rebecca Marie Allen was last seen at her home in Washburn around 10:30 am on Saturday. Authorities think she may be with her biological mother, Teresa Lynn Allen, 39 who also uses the name Teresa L. Gantt. The last time Rebecca was seen she was with her mother.
Rebecca has been described as weighing about 48 lbs. and she has blond hair and brown eyes. The mother, is about 5ft. 3 in. and she weighs about 160 lbs. and she has blond hair and brown eyes as well.
Rebeccaâ€™s father has sole custody of Rebecca apparently because the mother is mentally unstable and is capable of harming her daughter.
â€œShe has threatened to kill the child before turning her over to the Division of Family Services,â€ said a spokeswoman with the highway patrol, Barbara Graham.
I donâ€™t understand why this child was left alone with her mother if she would be in danger around her to begin with unless the courts ordered the mother visitation rights. Even then in this case if it is true about the mother threatening to kill the child before she should have never been left alone with her at all. So many questions here but no other details were available that I have been able to find. I just pray she is found safe.
If anyone knows anything about where Rebecca is please call 911 or you can contact the McDonald County Sheriffâ€™s Department at 417-223-7429.
Please continue praying for all the children that we have been reading about lately. My list keeps getting longer but I refuse to leave them out. Their names need to continue being remembered until somehow they can get justice that they deserve. We have, Caylee Anthony, Adji Desir, Haleigh Cummings, Somer Thompson, Elizabeth Olten, Masaraha Ross, Shannon Dedrick and Alex Mercado. There are so many more but this is the list I personally have been reporting about lately. How many more children will have their lives taken before something is done to stop this? Please join me in my prayers for these children.
