VAN ZANDT COUNTY — UPDATE (Monday, October 15): The Grand Saline Police Department says Charity Pulley, 17, is back with her family and is well. The police department released no further details about the disappearance or return of the Grand Saline High School sophomore.
UPDATE (Monday, October 1): Grand Saline ISD will be holding a vigil for the safe return of Charity Pulley, who has been missing since September 18.
The event will take place Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. at the high school's flag pole.
Everyone is invited to attend.
A Van Zandt County teenager has been missing for more than a week.
Authorities with the Van Zandt County Sheriff's Office and the Grand Saline Police Department have been looking for 17 year old Charity Pulley since September 18th.
Pulley is a sophomore at Grand Saline High School.
The girl's father, Jewelus Pulley, is a pastor at the Grand Saline Central Pentecostal Church.
He tells KETK, they noticed their daughter was missing early in the morning, and noticed that the screws had been removed from her window and the screen.
Mr. Pulley says that it is not normal for his daughter to run away, and that she seemed fine the evening before her disappearance.
He says she had been texting a boy, and may have sneaked out for a date with him, but he never brought her back.
He also says that her glasses, contacts, wallet and house key were left behind.
The teenager is legally blind in one eye, so Mr. Pulley says it would be highly unlikely she would leave all this behind.
Charity Pulley is 4'11", and about 115 lbs. She was last seen at 9:30pm on September 18th.
