Conway police are asking the public for help in locating a woman and her 7-year-old son, who were reported missing recently by a relative.
Officials with the Conway police department say the mother of Constance Hendrix, 30, reported to police that she has been unable to make contact with her daughter for nearly a month.
The mother told police that in the days leading up to their disappearence, Hendrix was involved in several physical altercations and likely fled because she feared that the Department of Human Services would remove her son from her custody because of allegations of maltreatment.
The woman said Hendrix may not be thinking clearly and fears for her welfare.
During investigations, CPD Detective Jason Cameron learned the last confirmed law enforcement sighting of Hendrix and her son was made Feb. 12 at the United States and Mexico border in McAllen, Texas, where they were re-entering the United States.
Police say the mother and child may be traveling in a white 2005 four-door Chrysler PT Cruiser with Arkansas license plate number 268 RFT.
Hendrix is described as a black female, 5'8" and 276 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.
Her son, Kamari, is described as a black male with brown eyes and black hair.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact CPD at (501) 450-6120 or their local law enforcement agency.
