“If it’s a missing adult without any type of contact that the individual hasn’t contact anyone, from our agency standpoint, we’re going to pull out all the stops to find out why that individual is missing,” Chief Deputy Wayne Hudson said, as per Crime Online.
According to reports, it was Allen’s neighbour, Alex Mueller. who said that her son was off to see his father when she went missing. “She’s wonderful. She’s been our neighbor for over ten years, and her son played with our kids. And it was, you know, just a few weeks ago, he played basketball with our kids in the backyard. I mean, we’re, we’re close,” Mueller told the outlet.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Topeka Police have joined the search for Allen, who was last seen on Saturday, November 19, around 11 pm, near 168th and Blondo streets in Douglas County.
"We aren't direct neighbours, but you know, in this community, you want to hope for the best and you don't want anything bad to happen," Allen’s neighbour Katelyn Massey said, according to a report by 3 News Now. "There is a sense of fear gripping those in the locality- which is only natural to go through when you see someone you know go missing," she added.
"I would always come back up around here and I would see her either sitting outside or mowing the lawn, and so I would just say 'Hi' and 'How's your day going?' as I passed by," another neighbor, Micah Rhodes, said.
Rhodes added, "When someone a couple houses down from you is missing and you don't know what the reason is or where she is, and knowing that she has family left behind wondering as well, it just tugs at your heartstrings." He concluded that extreme cases like these led to introspection. “Something like this happens and you kind of have to step back and realize there are other things going on in the world than your own personal life," he said.
