Two Vidor children, 11-year-old Serina Solley and 13-year-old Matthew Solley, have been missing from their North Vidor home since Tuesday night. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that the pair was last seen outside of their home on Henry Drive, near North Tram and Spoonemore, at about 8:50 p.m. on Tuesday night. The pair have reportedly run away from home before, in November of 2016, when they hopped a train in Vidor and were found nine hours later in Houston.

According to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office news release, at approximately 9:40 p.m. Tuesday night, the Sheriff's Office received a call reporting two runaway children from the Vidor area. Deputies responded to Henry Drive and spoke with Seaver Solley, and his wife Stefanie. They reported that Solley’s two children, 11-year-old Serina Solley and 13-year-old Matthew Solley, had been missing since about 8:50 p.m.

Solley and his wife said that when they returned home from work, the children could not be located anywhere in or around the house. Solley reported to deputies that the children had gone to school that morning. He also reported that the pair had just recently run away. He spoke with a neighbor who said Serina and Matthew had been seen outside about 8:50 p.m.

A search of the neighborhood was conducted but did not locate the children or provide any additional information to investigators.

Sheriff’s investigators report that eleven-year-old Serina is 4 feet, 11 inches tall, with blonde hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing black leggings and a black jacket.

Deputies describe thirteen-year-old Matthew as being 5 feet, 2 inches tall with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing jeans and a red t-shirt with words “You’re killing me Smalls” on the front.

Orange County Sheriff’s detectives have contacted the local rail yards in case the children may have tried getting on a train again. Area agencies have been contacted for assistance also.

Anyone with any knowledge of the location of either of these children should call the Orange County Sheriff's Office at 409-883-2612.
