On October 28th, 21-year-old Tiaundra Kae Christon of College Station, Texas; told police that she had arrived at Gabbard Park with her daughter –Hanzana Anderson –around 8 a.m.

The child was last seen wearing an olive green jacket, with a black “girl squad” shirt, cream-colored pants, dark pink shoes and a purple beanie.
Since the missing toddler began making headlines, her father, Tobodrick Anderson went to the media and said he used to be the primary caregiver but that his ex- Tiaundra Christon had been keeping his daughter away from him for the past two months. Since then, he issued a plea to the public for help in locating his daughter.
