Missing Texas teen's story to be featured on 'Last Seen Alive' ID program

A new television series called “Last Seen Alive” will feature Alexandria (Ali) Lowitzer, a Texas teenager who disappeared four years ago, on the June 8 episode.
Investigation Discovery began airing the series June 1. The series follows the emotional journey of 12 families who chase down every lead in the hopes of finding their lost loved ones.
Ali disappeared on April 26, 2010, near her home in Spring, Texas, and has not been seen or heard from since. She was 16. She got off the school bus near home and headed toward her workplace. She never made it to the Burger Barn, a quarter of a mile from her home, to pick up her check and maybe work a few hours.
The last eyewitness accounts of Ali state she was walking away from her home toward the road that led to the Burger Barn and her last communication was a text message to a friend at 2:57 p.m.
Ali’s family has raised $30,000 as a reward for information leading to the return of Ali, who has been declared a runaway by the police.
The show will air at 9 p.m. EST.
