DPS released a picture of a vehicle believed to be involved in the case of a missing Livingston girl.

The dark blue 2003 Chevrolet Suburban shown below is believed by DPS to be connected to the case of Audrii Cunningham, 11, reported missing Thursday. Cunningham was reported to have been expected to board a school bus Thursday morning, but she never arrived at school. The image of the Suburban appears to show a license plate with the number AS8-5063

During a 2:30 p.m. DPS presser, Lt. Craig Cummings announced that Don Steven McDougal is a person of interest in Cunningham’s disappearance. He noted that the department said previously that there were several persons of interest in the case, but confirmed that McDougal is the main person of interest. McDougal was arrested Friday on an unrelated aggravated assault charge, Cummings said, and remains in custody at the Polk County Jail.

According to Cummings, a backpack was found at a dam on the Trinity River that is “consistent with that of a child” Friday night during the search for Cunningham. Cummings said they are evaluating the piece of evidence for connection with Cunningham.


Cummings also said that Crime Stoppers has assisted in offering a $7,000 reward for tips that lead to Cunningham’s discovery or additional arrests. The tips can be anonymous, according to Cummings.

Cunningham was last seen carrying a bright red ‘Hello Kitty’ style backpack. It has not been confirmed whether this was the same backpack found at the dam. She has blond hair, blue eyes, and is 4 feet, 1 inch tall. She weighs about 75 pounds.

She was last seen at 7 a.m. on Thursday at the 100 block of Lakeside Dr. in Livingston, and was reported missing around 5:30 p.m. Police believe she is in grave or immediate danger. If you have seen the vehicle shown above or have any other information on her whereabouts, please call 911.
