Vigil held for missing Dallas special needs teen

Posted: Updated:
Friends and family held a vigil Wednesday evening for a special needs teenager who has been missing for a week.

Dallas police issued a critical missing alert for Alejandra Gonzales, 18, a mentally disabled girl who left Sunset High School last Wednesday and hasn't been seen since.

According to a police report, that morning a teacher caught her using a computer. But, she isn't supposed to be on computers without adult supervision because in the past she has used them to chat with older men.

She apparently left through a back door at the school some time after fourth period and was possibly spotted later near the West End area of Dallas, the report states.

Gonzales has gone missing several times before.

In June 2011 she disappeared for nine days after leaving her grandparents' home. Then in September 2011 she walked away from her house in Oak Cliff and was spotted on a DART train in Plano, but returned home safely a few days later.

Gonzales was last seen wearing a black t-shirt with the words "Live Love Laugh" in gold writing and blue jeans. She has long black hair and it may be in a French braid.

Anyone with information about Gonzales is encouraged to call DPD or 911.
