She asked the manager directions to get to the Ellis Prison Unit, which was, at the time, a high-security prison for death row inmates. Once she got the directions, she departed from the station by foot, walking north on Sam Houston avenue.
At an unspecified time on the 31st, a waitress at the Hitch 'n' Post Truck Stop on Interstate 45 also spoke with our Jane Doe. She claimed the girl had asked for directions to, again, the Ellis Prison Unit. Jane Doe claimed to have a friend incarcerated there. The waitress suspected her to be a runaway and asked how old she was. She responded "19." The waitress did not believe her, thinking she looked younger, and asked if her parents knew where she was. She responded "Who cares?" The waitress then asked where she came from. The girl responded that she came from the Aransas Pass/Rockport area, by Corpus Christi. The waitress drew a map for the victim, who then departed from the truck stop. It is unknown whether she left by vehicle or foot.
Witness sightings of the victim interacting with the male with whom she hitched a ride are not existent.
