The public is invited to a prayer vigil for missing Lauren Colvin Thompson, daughter of Greg and Torie Colvin.
Sunday, January 20, the Trinidad High School gym. The gathering begins at 6:15 p.m. and the vigil at 6:30 p.m.
Greg and Torie both grew up in Trinidad. Harold and Nadine Colvin is Lauren’s grandparents, Joe and Sheila Graham are also her grandparents.
The Panola County Sheriff’s Office, in coordination with several other law enforcement agencies, is still looking for Lauren Thompson, days after she called 911 and disappeared from the Rock Hill area.
Panola County Sheriff Kevin Lake said the department received a call around 2:30 p.m. Thursday January 10 from a woman saying she was in a wooded area and thought someone was chasing her. The woman “appeared to be very disoriented and confused,” Lake said.
Using cellphone tower pings, dispatchers were able to locate a general area of where the woman was, and Lake said officers found her car stuck in a ditch on an oil/gas company lease road off FM 1794 west of Rock Hill. But her cellphone battery apparently ran down during the 911 call, and no further contact has been established, Lake said.
Thompson is described as a white female, approximately 5 foot, 5 inches tall and 190 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She is about 33 years old and was last seen wearing dark-colored pants or leggings and a dark-colored hoodie.
