Statement from College Station police chief Scott McCollum:

Over the last 72 plus hours, the College Station Police Department along with numerous other local, state and federal agencies have worked tirelessly to locate 2 year old Hazana Anderson who was reported missing on Sunday morning.

Today as a result of these efforts, investigators responded to the greater Houston area where they coordinated with local authorities and were able to recover remains that are consistent with that of a small child. Efforts will continue to positively identify the remains and these efforts will take several weeks.

The integrity of this investigation is paramount and as such we will not be taking questions at this time. We will continue to work with prosecutors and our law enforcement partners, as we seek to determine all of the facts of Hazana’s disappearance.

I would however, like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the College Station Police Department and the countless local, State and Federal agencies who have assisted in this investigation.

Tuesday update:

The search continues for a missing one year old Bryan girl and her mother remains in jail on bonds totaling $250,000 dollars.

Arrest reports from College Station police do not indicate independent witnesses seeing Hazana Anderson in Gabbard Park Sunday morning as indicated by 21 year old Tiaundra Christon.

The arrest reports also accuse Christon of withholding information that is vital to finding her daughter.

Officers found in a dumpster near the park, a black bag containing an undisclosed object that Christon handled along with clothing that the mother said her daughter was wearing.

Christon was arrested on charges of child endangerment and abandonment and filing a false police report.

Tuesday afternoon, CSPD issued a news release “asking for the public’s help with information about recent activity or travels of Tiaundra Kae Christon and/or Hazana Anderson.

This information, however insignificant it may seem, could be very important in helping us to locate Hazana, and our top priority and desire continues to be finding her.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the College Station Police Department at 979-764-3600 to provide this valuable help.”

Monday afternoon update:

The search for one year old Hazana Anderson has moved Monday afternoon to Travis Bryan park…the city of Bryan’s former municipal golf course.

College Station police Lt. Craig Anderson says the new search is the result of “follow up through investigation efforts”.

Lt. Anderson said detectives completed their search of the lake area in Bryan. No evidence was located, and they are continuing their investigation and interviews at this time.

Monday morning update, reflecting an updated age of the girl based on information from the National Center of Missing & Exploited Children:

The search continues for a one year old girl who was reported missing in College Station Sunday morning.

The child’s mother was arrested Monday morning by College Station police.

21 year old Tiaundra Christon of Bryan is in jail on charges of child endangerment/abandonment and filing a false police report.

CSPD Lt. Craig Anderson says there was no independent sighting of Hazana Anderson at Gabbard Park, as reported by her mother.

The mother told police she left the child in her stroller to go to her vehicle to get a bottle, then when she returned her daughter was gone.

According to a CSPD news release, investigators who interviewed Christon “discovered that she was not providing truthful information regarding the incident.”

And the child endangerment/abandonment charge, according to the CSPD news release, was due to Christon “placing the child in an environment, ‘near a body of water’, that posed a potential risk to the safety of the child.”
