    UPDATE 11:35 a.m.:

    Police are no longer looking for a red Cadillac SUV in connection with a missing 10-year-old girl, and there are no suspects at this time.

    Kayla Gomez-Orozco, 10, was last seen around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday attending church services at Bullard First Assembly Church, according to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.

    “We don’t know of any reason she walked off on her own,” Cherokee County Sheriff James Campbell said. “She has a good family, she’s a good girl and never had any problems. She’s real close to her mother and father.”

    Initially, the a red Cadillac SRX with dark tinted windows was seen in the church’s parking lot before she went missing. It has since has been cleared as a vehicle of interest in this investigation.

    “We are not looking for it anymore,” Campbell said. “We accounted for the vehicle.”

    Campbell said law enforcement is still asking for the public to keep an eye out for Kayla.

    “The FBI has a lot of agents to move in today to help with searching, with interviewing people,” Campbell said. “The (Texas Rangers) are also here with several other law enforcement agencies. We have a lot of help.”

    The FBI is setting up a mobile command center to help in the search. Campbell said local fire departments searched around the church Tuesday night and the area near her home, inside Loop 323 in Tyler, has also been searched. Fire departments will continue to search on Wednesday, he said.

    Gomez was last seen wearing a peach colored skirt and a T-shirt with “Racquet and Jog” printed on it and is 4 feet tall and weighs about 90 pounds.


    UPDATE 11:58 a.m.: Law enforcement is preparing for a press conference at First Baptist Church Bullard. Officials said they chose the location because of its size and ability to accommodate a large crowd.


    UPDATE: 12:07 a.m.: A prayer vigil for Kayla Gomez-Orozco is planned for 7 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall in Bullard, 114 S. Phillips St.


    UPDATE 12:17 p.m.: FBI officials are setting up a public tip line at the FBI command center, where the public can call in with tips.

    Insufficient information leads to lack of emergency alert

    Many East Texans are concerned after not receiving an emergency alert on their mobile devices when an East Texas girl went missing.

    An Amber Alert was issued for 10-year-old Kayla Gomez, who went missing from a Bullard church Tuesday night. But many have complained that they did not receive a WEA or Wireless Emergency Alert on their mobile devices overnight.

    On the Department Emergency Management website it says the Department of Public Safety is the authorized authority to send out those alerts. However, according to officials with the Department of Public Safety, DPS does not activate the phone alerts. They send the information to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

    According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's policy, a full vehicle description is required before a Wireless Emergency Alert is sent out. No license plate information was available when the information was sent to NCMEC.

    FBI asking for public's help in finding missing child; no lead too small- 972-559-5711

    Federal and local officials are asking for the public’s help in finding a 10-year-old Tyler girl who went missing from a Bullard church after an evening prayer service.

    Kayla Gomez-Orozco last was last seen about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the foyer of the Bullard First Assembly Church on U.S. Highway 69, just inside the Cherokee County limits.

    During a press conference at the First Baptist Church Bullard on Wednesday afternoon, the FBI and local officials said they were pursuing all leads and were asking for the public’s help in finding her. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI tip line at 972-559-5711.

    “No piece of information is too small, and all leads will be aggressively pursued to bring this little girl to her family,” said Thomas M. Class, senior special agent out of the FBI’s Dallas office, at a news conference Wednesday afternoon. “If you see something, say something. No piece of information is too small.”


    Kayla's cousin, Ester Zavala, said after the service was over, between 7:30 and 7:40 p.m., Kayla was in the foyer of the church with Ms. Zavala’s 2-year-old daughter. Family members said it's common for kids to play in the foyer during the service.

    Ms. Zavala said she was not at the church that evening, but her daughter and husband, Gustavo, attended the service and were possibly the last people to see Kayla before she disappeared.

    Ms. Zavala's husband told her, “Kayla bent down to hug (my daughter) and said, I’ll see you Friday. My husband buckled her up, and said, ‘We’re leaving.’ (Kayla) didn’t come outside. She is scared of the dark. She stayed in the lobby area.”

    By the time Gustavo Zavala made it home, an estimated five-minute drive, family was calling asking if Kayla rode with him, because they couldn’t find her, Ms. Zavala said.

    “She wouldn’t have gone outside, especially not by herself," Ms. Zavala said. “If she would have screamed, they would have heard her in the sanctuary. If she would have been laughing or crying, they would have heard her.”

    Kayla's older brother, Kenneth Gomez, told CBS19 his sister is very joyful and obedient and wouldn't do anything without her mother's consent or without asking permission.
