Texas police are on the lookout for an unidentified woman caught on a home surveillance system in the middle of the night. In the footage, she appears to be not fully clothed and sporting broken restraints on her wrists. 

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (and as shown in the video clip of the incident), the woman rang a doorbell of a home in the Sunrise Ranch subdivision at around 3:20 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 24. Authorities said that “numerous citizens in the state and outside” have sent them flyers of missing persons in their areas following the bizarre encounter.

“Deputies and detectives are reviewing these flyers for any similarities, but as of now none are believed to be the women in the video,” the department said in a statement. “There are no missing person’s reports from the area that match this individual.”

A neighborhood resident told ABC News that the woman rung several doorbells around the neighborhood, but disappeared before residents got to the door. Another resident, Branson Golson, aired his concern about the reports.

“I’ve got a 9-year-old daughter at home,” he told KTRK in Houston. “It worries me what’s going on in the neighborhood.”

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department added that it is sweeping the subdivision for any insights or clues. Police have also posted images of the surveillance video on its various social media accounts.

“Deputies have canvased the area, completed a door-to-door check and interviews of residences as well as businesses in the area,” said a police department statement. “Deputies are also reviewing video surveillance from surrounding residence and businesses.”
