Ms. Escott is cautious with who her daughter spends her time with. In fact, Matthiya is not allowed to stay out overnight . Her close friends are known and have been contacted. There are no leads as of late. Matthiya’s neighbors say they are shocked about her disappearance. They say they never see Matthiya in the neighborhood without her younger brother, and never beyond Steve Jones Park nearby.
