North Texas police are searching for a 16-year-old runaway with intellectual disabilities. Tammy Guadalupe Ferguson disappeared over the weekend.
Ferguson, a Hispanic girl, walked out of her home at the 2300 block of Cartwright Street around 10:30 p.m. Saturday to 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Irving Police Department.
"Tammy has a learning disability, gets confused at times about where she might be walking, and does not like to be touched," said police. "She may run if approached by a stranger and may not answer if called."
She is believed to be wearing a blue top and multicolored Vans shoes, said police. She may also be carrying a white backpack with red stripes.
