Details of Disappearance
Megan was last seen in Tyler, Texas on March 27th 1991. She was seen playing with her older 8 year old sister, Fallon, her 6 year old brother Chance, and her two cousins, Nicky who was 8 and Van who was 4. They were playing on a playground on the Casa Grande Apartments which was located on 4400 Paluxy Drive. Her mother was inside the apartment at the time.
The children all went up to Apartment 2056 where the Garners lived at the time to get water. Megan was last seen standing by the air conditioner near the laundry room. She was reportedly scared to cross the street so the children left her outside.
Megan disappeared shortly thereafter and was never heard from again. Investigators suspect that Megan was abducted by a non family member on the day of her disappearance. Many sightings of Megan were sent to police after her alleged abduction.
On April 4th, investigators received a tip which stated that a child matching Megan’s description was seen at a local grocery store about 4 hours after her disappearance. She was seen with an unidentified man who is described as being Caucasian and standing between 5’8″ and 5’9″. He was approximately 35 years old in 1991 and he had a muscular build.
Investigators are unsure if the child seen with the man was in fact Megan and the man remains unidentified. There are no solid suspects in Megan’s case. Her disappearance remains unsolved but investigators continue to receive tips about her whereabouts.
