13-year old Texas girl steals brother’s car to visit 12-year old internet boyfriend 1,000 miles away
Elizabeth Annette Robinson stole her mom’s ATM card, snuck out her bedroom window, hopped into the car and drove more than a thousand miles in an effort to meet the her love, Dylan.
The 13-year-old was reported missing Thursday after her mother said she had sneaked out of her bedroom the night before.
Robinson, of Cypress, Texas, was eventually tracked to Nashville, Tennessee when a trooper stopped the teen after he noticed that the car she was driving matched the description included in an Amber Alert which had been issued for her.
According to KHOU, Robinson decided to run away after getting into an argument with her parents over a 12-year-old boy from Kentucky she had met on the Internet while playing the Xbox video game Call of Duty.
After her father revoked her Xbox privileges earlier this week, the girl apparently hatched a plan to take off on her quest.
She fled her home at around 9:30pm Wednesday night. The following morning, her parents discovered that she had escaped, leaving a note behind saying that she was running away to a girlfriend’s house because of bullies at school, and threatening to kill herself.
But after going through her email messages, Elizabeth’s parents figured out that their daughter was actually heading to Kentucky to meet with her Xbox boyfriend.
Kids these days.
