GRAND PRAIRIE (CBSDFW.COM) – A Grand Prairie High School math teacher, Michael Perez, 25, is believed to have taken off with a 16-year-old student, Amy Botton.
Grand Prairie Police said they believe Perez and Botton met at Grand Prairie High School.
Grand Prairie ISD said in a news release Thursday night, “Perez has been removed from all duties and prohibited from being on district property.”
“If true, this is a reprehensible violation of an educator’s responsibility to students. Betraying a child’s trust is outrageous,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Susan Hull. “We urge law enforcement to take the strongest possible action as soon as possible.”
Perez and Botton are believed to be in a 2011 black Toyota Camry with Texas license place CS8-G465 or a 2014 grey Toyota Camry with Texas license plate DDP-1381.
Police said they’re concerned for the teen’s welfare and are asking for the public’s help in locating her.
