Crawford’s family reported her missing on November 1. Her mother told authorities her daughter was in good spirits when they last spoke the night of October 30.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Crawford’s front door was locked with a deadbolt and her phone, ID and debit card were gone from the apartment. Yet a key to the unit and a cell phone charger were left behind.
Since her disappearance, the 21-year-old’s family has spoken out in the press pleading that Alexis is ok and returns back home.
“I just want to say this is a very hard time for our family,” Alexis’ sister Alexandria Crawford said. “If Lexi, she’s watching, I just want you to know you’ve always been my role model. You’re my strength.”
“I just want you to come home and be safe, and I hope God is walking with you,” she continued. “And please prevent any evil that comes her way, and we’re here for you.”
Alexandria told police they last texted at 8:45 pm on Wednesday (October 30). She recalls asking Alexis what she was going to do on the weekend, in which she simply replied, “nothing.”
Alexis is one of ten children and reportedly always spoke to her family on a daily basis. Atlanta Police say as of yet, they do not suspect any foul play but the investigation is still ongoing.
