DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Police are searching for a teenage girl they believe may have run away in order to be with a former Dallas ISD teacher who is facing child sexual assault charges.

The 15-year-old girl was last seen on the 12800 block of Noel Road, near Harvest Hill Road around 8:30 a.m. Monday.

Her mother made a 911 call from an apartment complex at that location.

According to investigators, the teen texted her mother yesterday saying she wanted to be with a man named Scott Alcaraz. Her mother has not heard from her since.

Scott Paul Alcaraz, 27, is a former DISD teacher and assistant basketball coach. He was fired from his teaching job at Marsh Middle School last April, after he was accused of having sex with a minor student in a classroom.

Alcaraz posted $50,000 bond and was awaiting trial for sexual assault of a minor. He was last in court on February 5, 2013.

Police will not say whether the 15-year-old girl is the same student that made the 2013 accusation. According to court documents, Alcaraz violated his bond terms when he had contact with the teen in January. He was then charged with indecency with a minor, and his bond raised to $100,000.

Tuesday, neighbors who live on the same street as Alcazar in Dallas, said they had not seen the man in the last couple of weeks. A few were aware of the previous case against him, while others were not.

Genevieve Avalos lives across the street, and says she does not know Alcazar well.

“There are kids out here. Someone like that is pretty scary. I have nieces and nephews,” Avalos said.

At his parents’ home, a woman neighbors identified as Alcazar’s mother told CBS 11 News she does not know where her son is, and declined to comment further.

Dallas police officers were seen patrolling the street Tuesday morning, looking for Alcazar.

If convicted of the charges, Alcazar faces up to 20 years in prison.

“Even if [the accused] is just five years older, she’s still a minor. You should be with somebody that’s your age, not younger. Maybe they don’t know what to do and he might be persuading them,” said Avalos.

Dallas Police are asking anyone with information about this case to call 9-1-1 or (214) 671-4268.
