Earlier today, the Greenville Police Department was notified by the Dallas County Medical
Examiner’s Office that the body discovered in Van Zandt County on November 6, 2012, was that
of 16-year old Alicia Chanta Moore, who was reported missing on November 2, 2012.

A cause of death has not yet been provided by the medical examiner’s office. The Van Zandt
County Sheriff’s Office, the Texas Rangers and the Greenville Police Department are
cooperating in the ongoing investigation.

Alicia was last seen getting off of a Greenville ISD school bus the afternoon of Friday,
November 2, 2012, at the corner of Bourland and Walnut Streets.

An AMBER Alert was not issued in this case because it did not meet the criteria set by the Texas
Department of Public Safety (DPS).

DPS requires that a requesting law enforcement agency must meet all the below criteria in order
to activate the State AMBER Alert Network:
           A. Is this child 17 years of age or younger, whose whereabouts are unknown, and
              whose disappearance law enforcement has determined to be unwilling which
              poses a credible threat to the child’s safety and health; and (i) if abducted by a
              parent or legal guardian, was the abduction in the course of an attempted murder
              or murder? OR
           B. Is this child 13 years of age or younger, who was taken (willingly or unwillingly)
              without permission from the care and custody of a parent or legal guardian by:
                  i. someone unrelated and more than three years older,
                  ii. another parent or legal guardian who attempted or committed murder at
                      the time of the abduction?
2. Is this child in immediate danger of sexual assault, death or serious bodily injury?
3. Has a preliminary investigation verified the abduction and eliminated alternative
   explanations for the child’s disappearance?
4. Is sufficient information available to disseminate to the public to help locate the child, a
   suspect, or the vehicle used in the abduction?
