Police are asking for help locating an Atlanta college student who vanished last week.
Alexis Crawford, a 21-year-old senior at Clark Atlanta University, was last seen at her off-campus apartment Oct. 30, according to her roommate, and her family reported her missing two days later when she failed to show up for class or work, police said.
Investigators released images on Tuesday captured by surveillance cameras at a southwest Atlanta business before she disappeared, hoping to grab the attention of residents who may recognize her. She was wearing dark-colored jeans and a pink hoodie with white lettering on the front — the clothing she was last known to be wearing.
“She’s a beautiful girl. She’s a beautiful, fun-loving little girl,” her great-aunt Brenda Crawford, told reporters Monday. “She’s the type of girl that when she sees you, when you come in the house, the first thing she’s going to do is sit on your lap and give you a hug. She’s a sweet girl.”
Crawford’s mother, Tammy Crawford, said she “seemed to be in good spirits and was laughing” during a FaceTime conversation with her and her sister at around 3.30 p.m., the same day she was last seen, according to a police report.
She was active on social media later that evening and her roommate said she took her to a nearby liquor store at around 11:30 p.m. and returned home, the report said.
The roommate said she last saw Alexis Crawford around midnight before she retired to her room for the night. She said the house was empty when she left for class the following morning and the front door was locked.
