Missing! CAU Student: Alexis Janae Crawford


Alexis Crawford, a 21-year-old senior at Clark Atlanta University, hasn’t been seen since she left the Heritage Station apartments near campus on Oct. 30.

WSB-TV‘s Tyisha Fernandes spoke with Crawford’s family Monday afternoon at Atlanta police headquarters.

“I just want you to come home safe – I hope God is walking with you and please prevent any evil that comes her way – and we’re here for you,” said her father, Bobby Wright.

Family members told Fernandes that Crawford talks to someone in her family every day no matter how busy she gets. That’s why they believe something is terribly wrong.

Crawford hasn’t been to school or work and her phone has been going to voicemail since Thursday.

“Usually if we go a day without talking to her or something like that – she’ll call us and be like, ‘Aw, mom, I was asleep. Mom, I was studying. I was at work.’ But she hasn’t said anything yet,” Monica Wright said.

Crawford is described as 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black T-shirt or hoodie and a cheetah-print head scarf.

Anyone with information on Crawford is urged to contact Atlanta police.
