Police Searching for Missing 13-year-old Run Away with 18-year-old Sister in Fifth Ward Area

Soul Screwed Series

Left to Right: Maya Coffman (Age 18) Kassidy Coffman (Age 13)SSS

Houston area police and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children are searching for Kassidy Coffman, 13 years old, and her 18-year-old sister Maya Coffman. The young girls were last seen in the Fifthward area of Houston near Jensen Dr.

It is highly suspected that these young girls have been targeted by older men and have experienced exploitation. Police are asking residents and hotel personnel to stay alert and contact the authorities as soon as possible with any information or location of these young girls.

In 2021, 7,355 new missing child cases were reported in Harris County and 9,522 in the 14-county Houston-Galveston region according to The Center for the Missing.

Please be aware that wanting to support a disturbed teen is commendable, however, it can get you into legal situations yourself if that individual is a runaway. Adolescents get bitter and resentful occasionally and make premature judgments. Vexation after a disagreement with parents or relatives can lead to dynamic melt-downs, bad choices, unnecessary conflict, and destructive conduct.

Permitting a juvenile who has run away from home to stay in your dwelling without cautioning the authorities and their parents, is criminal. You could be arrested for Harboring a Runaway (also called Aiding and Abetting), or Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. In most circumstances, these won’t be felony charges, but they are viewed to be very severe misdemeanors and could result in several months of incarceration and consequential fines.

If you think you noticed and/or identify somebody who is recorded as a missing person, the most significant step that you can take is to contact the police. Any information that you remember is noteworthy and may be beneficial.

If you see these young girls immediately contact the police department handling the investigation.

To submit the information anonymously, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or 1-800-222-8477. Contact your local police assistant.

Q&A: Spouse Debates Court As He Fights To See His Daughter After Girlfriend Moves Into Hotel With New Boyfriend

"My ex-girlfriend moved out of our apartment into a hotel room after she received her money from taxes. She said that she wasn't happy and felt we needed to separate. Against my objections, she packed her and our daughter's clothes and left. Since her departure, there has been constant bickering over when I can spend quality time with my child. I have kept my composure and tried my best to keep tensions calm, however, a mutual friend of ours recently told me that she has a new boyfriend that she has been spending quality time with. I brought the topic up to her, and she started calling me jealous and so on. My only point is that she has a man in a hotel room staying with my child. I feel as a father, I have a right to question these actions. I responded by assuring her that I was not concerned with whom she wished to be with, but I would like to care for my child when he is around until I knew him better and so forth. I also brought up the fact that for her to be so comfortable with the new fellow, she must have known him for a longer period of time than said. Which in my mind would explain her recent departure. She became extremely upset and began whopping and hollering about me wasting her life and wanting to control her. Since the incident, I have only spoken to my daughter over the phone and have yet to see her. I don't want to cause problems for our family. What can I do without involving the courts?" -Xavier.

Sibling Relationship Ruined After Brother Throws Miscarriage in Sister's Face Behind New Girlfriend

"My brother's new girlfriend is highly unaccepted by my family for multiple reasons. One is that he ruined his childhood friendship and highly respectable relationship to be with this person. The female has a five-year-old daughter and is very financially unstable. I watch as my brother who is not the child's father wakes up to get the baby dressed, fully bathed, and fed while her mother sleeps past noon. On multiple occasions, the child is absent from school and my brother will miss work to stay home and accompany the two of them. What baffled me is not only does he lay out the child's clothes but her mother's as well. Along with her toothbrush and etcetera. For the entirety of their relationship, they have been living pillar to post, and my brother has even started lying and hustling money from family members who are growing tired. His girlfriend constantly spends money she receives on marijuana, which she freely uses in front of the child before anything else. I expressed how this was not his job and that he was bringing himself down for a woman trying to take care of them while she had no initiative to care for herself or her child. In response, my brother reiterated the fact that I could not have kids and went so far as to call me jealous and say that it was the reason I miscarried. I am extremely hurt however my family is saying I should just calm down. Am I wrong for saying that my hands are washed with him? " -Candace.
