In a statement Friday evening, the Houston Police Department claim that Adriana had last been seen in Katy, a Houston suburb, on Saturday. An Amber Alert had police and citizens searching for the teen girl.

The girl’s father, Cesar Vladimir Coronado, was found dead the following day, his burned body dumped near a ditch in a rural area in Walker County, about 80 miles north of Houston. Investigators believe Adriana might have been with her father when he was killed.

A cause of death for Adriana is pending, Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said Friday.

Houston Police say the investigation remains ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
