Michelle disappeared on December 19, 1997. She was supposed to take the bus and go to school, but her attendance records show she never made it to class that day.

SPRING, Texas — It’s been 25 years and there’s still no sign Michelle Prasek, a Spring girl, has left missing when she was 12.

Michelle disappeared on December 19, 1997. She was supposed to take the bus and go to school, but her attendance records show she never made it to class that day.

That National Center for Missing and Exploited Children posted a progress photo on Michelle’s 25-year disappearance with hopes someone will know who she is and shed new light on her disappearance.

“Our forensic scientists take the missing child’s photo and family reference samples, so what your mother looked like at a certain age, what your father looked like at a certain age,” NCMEC’s ​​John Bischoff said.

He says the organization has been involved in the case since 1997 and has offered support to law enforcement and Michelle’s family. Bischoff says KHOU’s 11 anniversaries are often a time when cases can receive new impetus through community engagement.

“We want the public to look for Michelle. We want to keep an eye on your poster. Someone out there knows something,” Bischoff said. “We just have to get the poster in the right eyes.”

If you have any information about Michelle or her disappearance, you are asked to call MCMEC at 1-800-843-5678 or the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 936-760-5800.

What happened to Michelle Prasek?

Michelle’s mother left her family home on December 19, 1997 to take her youngest daughter to kindergarten. She expected Michelle to take the bus to school, but it’s unclear if she ever made it.

“She was mad at me for not letting her go shopping and not letting her stay with a friend,” Beth Prasek said.

Prasek didn’t call until the next day Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

“They initially viewed this as a potential outlier because things seem to be adding up,” Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Captain Bryan Carlisle said.

A backpack, blanket and Michelle’s 6-month-old kitten “Froggy” were also missing. When detectives visited Knox Junior High, a student told them Michelle was on campus and spoke of running away. However, attendance records show that she was never in class.

Over the years, volunteers handed out flyers, and Michelle’s mother publicly advocated for it. Michelle’s parents are divorced. Her father lives out of town and her mother admits her daughter has visited a counselor but has never run away.

“We pray that she’s still alive, but we have to deal with it like she’s not,” Carlisle said.

When we asked Carlisle if the disappearance might have been staged, he said, “We’re not ruling anything out.”

One person never ruled out Marc Seguin, who was dating Michelle’s mother at the time and living with the family.

“We still consider him a person of interest at this point,” Carlisle said.

Seguin left the house first that morning, but neighbors said he had returned. Investigators said he failed a polygraph.

“There were some subsequent tests that were done where he didn’t do well on whether her body could be anywhere, but beyond that, apart from having any other physical evidence, we were the Hands tied,” Carlisle said.

However, then came a twist. In another case, in 2005, a jury convicted Seguin of indecency with a child. He now resides in West Texas as a registered sex offender.

“Detectives met with him, they met with him right after he left probation, and I’ll tell you we’ll be speaking to him again at some point,” Carlisle said.

Investigators followed further clues. Several kidnapping attempts near school bus stops were reported in the months following Michelle’s disappearance, but there was no connection. All these years later, they’re still looking for witnesses to come forward.

“We still maintain that there are people out there who know something, who saw something, maybe had a conversation with her, it may not sound important to her, but every detail helps,” Carlisle said.

If Michelle is still alive, she would be 37 years old and have a birthmark on her palm.
