Barefoot Mystery Woman In Broken Shackles Rings Texas Doorbell At 3 A.M. — Can You ID Her?

By: Mike McPadden

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX — Police are circulating surveillance video of a woman wearing what appears to be only a T-shirt and broken shackles as she rings a doorbell in the middle of the night, after which she apparently disappeared.

Authorities are seeking to identify the woman and determine whether she has been reported missing.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the woman approached a home in the Sunrise Ranch subdivision the past Friday at about 3:20 A.M. and rang the doorbell.

The resident reportedly woke up and answered the door, but, by then, no one was outside. The resident then submitted the private security video to the police.

Observers of the video believe the woman is barefoot and looks to be wearing just a T-shirt.

In addition, it’s reported that she has what might be broken restraints on her wrists, although others think the objects may just be bracelets or lanyards. Police have not commented on what they believe the wrist items might be.

Lieutenant Scott Spencer said that, since the video was released to social media over the weekend, "numerous citizens” have contacted the sheriff’s office with flyers suggesting the woman is a missing person, possibly from Canada.

While not publicly speculating on any of the tips, Spencer said authorities have thus far not been able to find a match to the missing persons database and that "there’s still a lot to be done.”

Anyone with any information about the woman in the video is asked to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office at (936) 760-5800 and refer to case No. 18A243347.
