Chilling video has captured the attention of police in Texas that shows a woman who appears to be in need of help, ringing doorbells in the middle of the night with restraints on her wrists.
The woman is seen on resident Jennie Drude’s security camera, who shared the video to Facebook and with police. The woman seems to be walking quietly up to the door of the home with what appears to be some sort of restraints on her wrists, with no pants or shoes on.
The woman was ringing doorbells in the Sunrise Ranch area of Montgomery, Texas at around 3am on Friday August 24, but by the time the residents reached their doors, the woman was gone.
As the woman rings the doorbell she appears to look down the block nervously, as if she fears being discovered.
In the short clip the woman is seen emerging from behind a bush, she seems to be trying to be quiet, and she reaches for the doorbell.
There appears to be what may be restraints on her wrists. Drude described the woman as appearing to be out of breath from what she could see on her home’s surveillance video.
Another resident, who did not want to be identified, told Click2Houston, ‘We were dead asleep in our beds. My husband was woken up by doorbell rings. It rang probably 20 to 30 times.
By the time her husband answered the door, no one was there.
‘He walked outside. No one was in sight. It’s like she disappeared in thin air,’ the resident said.
‘It was kind of scary because this girl looked like she was just in a shirt. She looked like she had wrist restraints on her wrist and she was barefoot. You can see her with a worry on her face looking around,’ the resident said.
She rang on at least five residents’ doorbells in the area.
No one in the tiny community recognizes her from the neighborhood.
Police canvassed the area and went door-to-door to speak with residents. They are also reviewing other security footage from the area.
The area surrounding the rear of the small neighborhood is densely wooded.
Law enforcement canvassed the neighborhood, conducted a door-to-door check interviewing residents, and is currently reviewing surveillance camera footage from the area, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said.
As of Tuesday morning, the Sheriff’s office tells DailyMail.com. ‘We have nothing new. Detectives are currently investigating. We have not confirmed the identity of the woman.’
‘Numerous citizens in the state and outside have sent missing persons flyers suggesting the woman in the video is a missing person from their area’ the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said, according to ABC News.
‘Deputies and Detectives are reviewing these flyers for any similarities, but as of now none are believed to be the woman in the video.’
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is calling on anyone with information about the woman to contact them at 936-760-5800.
