A teacher’s assistant missing in Texas for a week is believed to be in danger as police say text messages received by a friend may indicate foul play was involved in her disappearance.

Jennifer Mendez Olascoaga, a 24-year-old teacher’s assistant with the Dallas Independent School District, has been missing since Sept. 27, the Seagoville Police Department said.

Family members said that her unexplained disappearance is not considered normal behavior.

“She always makes it home, she was very punctual at work, she didn’t show up the next day, we said this is not okay, something is going on,” Litzy Mendez, Mendez Olascoaga’s cousin, told FOX4 Dallas-Fort Worth.

Family members believe her vehicle was last seen on surveillance cameras that day at about 8:00 p.m. in the Creekside Mobile Home Park located at 2510 U.S. HWY 175 in Seagoville, where she dropped off a friend.

Family told police that friends of Mendez Olascoaga had received strange text messages regarding the missing woman.
