Texas authorities are currently searching for 38-year-old Emily Wade, a missing Harrison County woman who recently moved to Ennis, Texas after she went missing on Saturday, January 5.
What Happened To Emily Wade?
According to reports, Wade — a mother of a 7-year-old daughter who is originally from Cynthiana, Kentucky — has not been seen since she visited co-worker’s house Saturday, January 5 to watch a movie.
Police say that the friend Wade was visiting saw Wade — who currently lives in Ennis, Texas — drive away in her 2012 silver Nissan Altima with a Kentucky license plate around 8:30 p.m. local time. The license plate of Wade’s Altima has a license plate that reads 411PAZ.
Since her disappearance, Wade’s family said they have not heard from her and her cell phone and bank account have not been used.
Speaking to NBC News, Shirley Wade, Emily’s mother, said that she would “bet her life” that her daughter did not “run off”:
“I don’t think she ran off, I would bet my life on that. I’m scared I’ll never see her again alive, and I’ve never said that to anybody else, but I am scared to death,” Wade said.
Additionally, Jared Jones — the father of Emily’s daughter — said that Emily “loves her daughter more than anything in the world”, so he “can’t imagine Wade would ever willingly be apart from her child.”

Shirley Wade said she doesn’t believe Jones had anything to do with the disappearance of her daughter. “I don’t think Jared would ever hurt the mother of his child,” Wade said. “It would shock me.”
Lt. Michael Hopson with the Ennis Police Department said Jones is not a suspect, but no one in the case has been cleared. He said investigators have also spoken with Wade’s coworkers.
Wade has blond hair, is 5’6 and about 140 pounds, police said. She was last seen wearing a peach sweater, blue jeans and sneakers with a peach stripe. Officers asked Ennis residents to look out for her car, a 2012 silver Nissan Altima with Kentucky plates and a broken front bumper.
