College Station, TX



COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KTRK) -- Authorities have arrested and charged a mother whose 2-year-old daughter went missing from a College Station park on Sunday.

Tiaundra Christon, 21, is charged with child endangerment and false reporting to police. She was booked into the Brazos County jail.

College Station police had been searching for her daughter, Hazana Anderson, for the last 24 hours.

Investigators have not said where the girl is.

Hazana was reportedly last seen Sunday morning at Gabbard Park at 1201 Dexter Dr. S.

According to the police department's Facebook post, Hazana's mother said she arrived at the park with her daughter around 8 a.m. She then said she returned to her car to get a bottle for Hazana.

Upon returning from her car, the mother discovered the 2-year-old had vanished from her stroller.

Two fishermen later told police they heard the mom screaming for help.

Hazana is described as a black female, approximately 3' tall and weighing 28 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. The 2-year-old was last seen wearing an olive green jacket, with a black "girl squad" shirt, cream-colored pants, dark pink shoes, and a purple beanie.

Police say Hazana also has a dark-colored birthmark around her big toe on her left foot.

On Sunday, divers with the Harris County Sheriff's Office searched the pond at the park. They also used a drone and dogs to check the woods.

Police stated later Sunday night that the investigation in the park was completed, and officers were expecting to canvass nearby neighborhoods.

The 2-year-old's family also searched and handed out flyers.

"I just want her back. Whereever she's at, I just want her back," said Velt Burns, the girl's aunt.

Anyone with information in regards to Hazana's whereabouts is urged to contact police at 979-764-3600.
