Search is underway for Wheeler County teenager

Allison Dickey, 15, was last seen on the evening of Sunday, July 23, when she went to bed around 10:30 pm. The Wheeler County teenager was discovered missing from her home in Allison by her guardian around 7:30 am the next morning.

The 15-year-old is 5’2, weighs 104 pounds, and has brown hair with blonde tips and green eyes. It is unknown what clothing she was wearing when last seen, but she is believed to be carrying a pink and black backpack and makeup bag with her. Allison’s direction of travel is unknown.

On Tuesday afternoon, Flap-Air Helicopter pilot Trey Webb was called in to help search for the missing girl, but was unable to find any sign of her. In the neighboring community of Canadian, the report of her disappearance raised the haunting specter of Thomas Brown’s disappearance in the early hours of Thanksgiving morning, only eight months ago. Webb has also logged countless hours in the air search for some sign of Brown. That search continues, with very little indication from local and state law enforcement authorities and private investigators that they are any closer to solving the case.

Facing growing criticism over that an Amber Alert had not yet been issued for Allison, Wheeler County Sheriff Wes Crites issued a statement, saying that certain criteria must be met before the state will issue an alert. “So far…we do not have all the information required by the state to approve an Amber Alert,” Sheriff Crites said. “As we continue the investigation, we hope we will gather enough information to meet the needs of the state….”

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Wheeler County Sheriff’s Office at 806.826.5537.

    I just want to say thank you to all of the Hemphill Co. community that has helped in my sister Allison Dickey’s disappearance. This has been a very difficult and heartbreaking experience for my parents, all of Allison’s family, friends and the entire Wheeler Co. community. Personally I would like to thank Flap-Air-Helicopter, Trey Webb, and his Wife. Trey responded without hesitation to the search site where he and his wife did aerial search. Our family can not thank him enough for his quick and caring response. Trey has checked up on Allison’s search and has offered to help in anyway he can. I was raised my whole life in Canadian, TX. I have always known this was a community that would step up to someone’s needs when they can. I had classmates of 1995 help in the search as well as other residents of Hemphill Co. show up to help. The Canadian Record has done a great job in their story of Allison. She was a student last semester at the Canadian High School where her sister, mother, and many relatives have graduated from. Her mother Donna K Dickey is not her Guardian and I’m not sure why she is listed as guardian. Donna and Richard Dickey are Allison’s not guardians. Allison’s eyes are more hazel and the ends of her hair at the time of her disappearance was colored more with a reddish color then blond. Once again I can not say enough how much we appreciate all your efforts in the search and return of Allison. We know Hemphill Co. has and is still dealing with another missing student from Canadian High School. Our family has and will continue to pray for his safe return. We feel the hurt and fear that the Brown family is experiencing and pray that both teens can be returned home safely.
    Any info on the whereabouts of Allison can be reported to Wheeler Co, 806-826-5537 or please feel free to call myself LaDonna at 806-662-4666
