Normally I don’t use this blog space for something both worthwhile and serious, but I would like to call attention to the disappearance of a woman from my hometown of Newton, Texas. Newton County is the state’s easternmost county and thus borders Louisiana.

Watson left her home in Newton County to visit friends in Tenaha, Texas. News reports indicate she was last seen leaving a truck stop in Logansport, La., where she had supposedly won $1,000 playing video poker. Her automobile was later found burning off Louisiana Hwy. 191, in Sabine Parish. To read more about this just click this right here.

I don’t know this woman and I’m not sure if I know any of her family back in the area where I was raised. Also, the prospects of a good outcome on this case are poor. Nonetheless, if someone happens to read this who may know something helpful give the FBI or Sheriff Joe Walker in Newton County a call.
