GRAND SALINE — A Van Zandt County teenager has been missing for more than a week. Authorities with the Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office and the Grand Saline Police Department have been looking for Charity Pulley, 17, since September 18th. Pulley is a sophomore at Grand Saline High School.
The girl’s father, Jewelus Pulley, is a pastor at the Grand Saline Central Pentecostal Church. He tells KETK family members noticed Charity was missing early in the morning, and noticed that the screws had been removed from her window and the screen. Mr. Pulley says that it is not normal for his daughter to run away, and that she seemed fine the evening before her disappearance. He says she had been texting a boy, and may have sneaked out for a date with him, but if so, he never brought her back.
Pulley also says that Charity’s glasses, contacts, wallet, and house key were left behind. The teenager is legally blind in one eye, so Mr. Pulley says it would be highly unlikely she would leave all this behind. Charity Pulley is 4’11″, and about 115 lbs. She was last seen at 9:30pm on September 18th.
