Jack County Girl Missing Since Monday

Edit: Wow. This happened when I was out last week. She's been missing for almost 10 days. (Thanks commenter.) Edit: And this video was changed to "private"? Why? Edit: Update on this story in the Mineral Wells paper.
Perrin resident Krishonda "Shonda" Leann Townsend, 19, went missing sometime after 12:10 a.m. Monday, while reportedly returning home from Mineral Wells. According to Townsend's uncle, Jamie Rittenbury, Townsend sent her mother a text message shortly after midnight, telling her she was on her way home -- just east of Perrin in Gibtown. "Nobody's seen her since," he said Townsend was last seen around midnight Monday morning leaving the residence of a friend on U.S. Highway 180 West. The mother of a 2-year-old boy, she was last seen wearing pink shorts, a black tanktop over a black and white polka dot bikini and navy blue flip-flops.
