County deputies responded to calls for assistance during the last week. 

The following are excerpts from reports generated by the Texas County Sheriff’s Department:

•A 58-year-old Willow Springs woman reported at about 8:15 a.m. April 14 that her 14-year-old granddaughter had run away from her Wagner Road residence.

The woman told an investigating officer she is the girl’s guardian and had last seen her at about 3:20 a.m. the same day. The woman said the girl had been living in Springfield before she had taken custody of her.

The girl was reportedly wearing black Adidas pants when she was last seen. Authorities in Springfield and Howell County were notified.

•A 36-year-old Houston woman reported on April 13 that neighbors were harassing her at her Oak Hill Drive residence.

The woman stated that neighbors were driving by and taking photos of the bags of trash piled on her porch. She said she normally burns it, but hadn’t been able to due to wet weather.

An investigating deputy observed a deck on the south end of the house that had numerous bags of trash stacked on it about four feet high. The officer was unable to make contact with the woman.

•A Houston woman reported on April 12 that her 29-year-old daughter had walked away drunk from their Ozark Street residence and she didn’t know where she went. An investigating officer was later advised that the daughter had gone to a friend’s house and had returned home.

•A 48-year-old Hartshorn man reported on April 13 that there were malnourished livestock at a farm on Bennett Road at Solo. An investigating deputy observed that animals at the location appeared to be well taken care of.

•A deputy was dispatched at about 2 p.m. April 9 regarding a report of a possible drug overdose at an Airport Road residence at Cabool.

The officer made contact with a firefighter at the scene who said a man had come to the house to check on his 56-year-old brother and found him dead on a bed. The officer observed the deceased man sitting Indian-style and fully dressed on the bed. A notebook was found that the man had apparently been writing in before dying that contained a suicide note to his son.

The notebook and a container of hydrocodone pills were collected as evidence.
