The family of Ali Lowitzer is still searching for answers, seven months after the teenager disappeared.Ali’s father, John Lowitzer, admits that he struggles with his feelings."In some sense, you lose faith because of the evil things that are out there," said John Lowitzer, "but you gain a sense of humanity."Surveillance video showed the 16-year old as she got off the bus at Low Ridge Road on April 26. She was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, a white t-shirt, and checkered jeans. She was also carrying a checkered multi-colored backpack.Ali was never seen again.The holidays have brought a new sense of sadness, which began when family members asked Jo Ann Lowitzer about their Thanksgiving plans."I said, ‘yes we’ll have Thanksgiving as usual,’" said Jo Ann Lowitzer as she choked back tears.The Lowitzers have been working to put Ali’s picture in display ads on shopping carts throughout the area. The family hopes people will slow down long enough during the holiday rush to look and, possibly, help."If she can’t be here, then I pray that she’s safe wherever she is," said John Lowitzer. "That’s the best I could hope for."A $10,000 reward will be given for information that leads to an arrest in Ali’s case.

HOUSTON -- As a Spring couple approaches the
one-year anniversary of their daughter’s disappearance they are holding
on to hope that they will find the 17-year-old girl.

“I do. I have to,” said Ali Lowitzer’s father John Lowitzer. “Until we find some sort of closure it’s going to be hard.”

The teenager disappeared on April 26, 2010. She was last seen getting
off her school bus 30 feet from her house near Low Ridge and Knotty Post
in Spring.

Her parents said she was supposed to head to work at the Burger Barn
less than a quarter mile away to pick up her pay check, but she never
made it.

They said all communication stopped around 3 p.m. that day.

“Somebody knows something, so just say something, this is our daughter,
this is our heart, and I want her back,” said her father.

To say the last year has been hard would be an understatement. The
holidays are the worst for the Lowitzers. They have yet to touch
anything in her room. Her Easter basket from last year still sits on her
desk with the candy still inside.

“It’s right where she left it, exactly the way she left her candy,” said her mother, Jo Ann Lowitzer.

According to a spokesperson for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, the
investigation into her disappearance is an open and active
investigation. Homicide detectives are on it, but the teen is
officially considered a runaway.

It’s a classification her parents have refuted since her disappearance.

Ali’s parents have their theories and Sunday evening told KHOU 11 News
that they believe she may have known the person who’s behind her
disappearance.

“There are still some things out there that we have suspicions on,
ideas, but we can’t prove anything,” said the teen’s father. “I’d rather
keep that on the down low because it involves individuals and stuff.”

The Lowitzers have taken it upon themselves to keep their daughter’s
face in the public eye. They give flyers to anyone who will take them or
post them. They’ve printed T-shirts and have set up a Facebook page
and the website www.alexandrialowitzer.com, which is dedicated to their daughter.

Tuesday, on the one-year anniversary of the teen’s disappearance, the
Spring Area Youth Softball league will dedicate a picnic table and a
tree to Ali at Beyer Park in Spring. That’s the ball park where Ali
played softball. The dedication ceremony begins at 7:30 p.m.

”My hope is that the right person sees that she’s missing and they tell
her that we’re looking for her and she calls and tells me she’s OK,”
said her mother.

Ali’s parents hope and pray that she will be home for the next holiday. They said they will never stop searching for her.

“That’s my daughter, and she’s the most precious thing in my life, and I’ll never stop,” said her father.

Dog team to search for missing girl, 16, in Spring

| July 22, 2011 4:11 pm


Alexandria Lowitizer
The Greater Houston Search Dog Team and missing-child advocacy
organization Laura Recovery Center will search a ravine in Spring on
Saturday for a local girl who went missing last year.

Alexandria Lowitizer, 16, went missing on April 26, 2010, after getting
off a school bus near her home on Low Ridge Road in Spring. Multiple
searches have failed to turn up anything, and authorities do not know
what happened to her.

During a search last weekend, a team discovered a "trash-filled ravine"
in a wooded area about a mile from where Alexandria disappeared,
according to a Laura Recovery Center press release.

The team will meet Saturday morning at Northwood Baptist Church, 5803
Treaschwig Road. They will give a short demonstration of the dogs'
search tactics at 8:15 a.m., the release says.

New leads possible in case of missing Spring teen
Ali Lowitzer, 16, missing since April 2010

HOUSTON - Local 2 Investigates has learned detectives are looking into a possible connection between the deaths of two Louisiana women and the case of a missing teenager from Spring.

Ali Lowitzer, 16, disappeared after getting off the school bus just feet from her home on April 26, 2010.

Searches, tips and leads have never provided concrete evidence as to what happened to Lowitzer. But a source close to the investigation said one of the early tips in the case put a white pick-up truck in the area.

At the time, the tip did not have direct significance, but the recent arrest of a man in Louisiana with Texas ties has investigators taking a closer look.

Brandon Scott Lavergne, 33, is charged in the deaths of two women. University of Louisiana undergrad, Mickey Schunick and Lisa Pate, who went missing in 1999.

Police investigators have said that Lavergne drove a white pick-up truck and that truck was found abandoned and burned in San Jacinto County earlier this year.

"Whenever we hear something like that it really gets our attention and we start watching it more," John Lowitzer said.

John Lowitzer and his wife, Jo Ann, said they are not sure what to think at this point but they are closely following the Louisiana cases.

Texas Cold Case May Have Links to Brandon Scott Lavergne

Posted: Aug 15, 2012 7:46 PM CDT

State prosecutors are moving forward with their case against Brandon Scott Lavergne. An evidentiary hearing is scheduled for Friday, April 17th. Lavergne says he's not guilty. He's charged with the first degree murders of Mickey Shunick and Lisa Pate. Their deaths are more than a decade apart. Police say this is Lavergne's white pick-up truck seen on surveillance footage the night Shunick disappeared. It was eventually found burned in San Jacinto County, Texas. And that's what caught the attention of a private investigator working a cold case in the area. He's now looking into Lavergne's past.

On April 26th, 2010, 15-year-old Ali Lowitzer went missing near her home in Spring, Texas. She seemed to have vanished without a trace and since then, no clues to her whereabouts have surfaced. But, the Lowitzer family's private investigator, Mac Sanford, seems to think Lavergne may be connected. And it all surrounds Lavergne's white pick-up truck.

For two-and-a-half years, the Lowitzer family has wondered what happened to their daughter. She vanished while walking to work and no evidence has surfaced since. John Lowitzer, Ali's father told Eyewitness News Wednesday, "Nobody knows anything. People don't just disappear, so that's been the most frustrating."

But the family's private investigator thinks a new door has opened. Shunick's alleged killer, Brandon Laverge's truck was found burned in a neighboring county to Spring, where Ali went missing.

"The second I read his truck was found in San Jacinto County, Texas, my blood went cold," said Sanford. "And I immediately started digging for information out of it."

That was a red flag for Sanford because in the days after Ali went missing, two separate tips came through, which reported a white truck pulled over where Ali was walking. "They were saying without a shadow of a doubt, they knew it was Ali once they saw all the missing fliers," said Sanford. "And that they saw a white truck with an extended cab, a domestic truck trying to coax and girl on the side of the road."

And one of those tips identified the first few digits of that truck's license plate number. But after running thousands of Texas plates, none matched up. It wasn't until Lavergne's truck was found burned that Sanford tried Louisiana plates. And what he found, startled him.

"Low and behold, on that hunch, I pulled all the information from the Louisiana DMV on vehicle's Lavergne owned and has owned," said Sanford. "And at the time Ali went missing, he owned a white, GMC 2005 extended cab truck with the same digits that were mentioned in the tip line."

Sanford says Lavergne frequented that area of Texas because of family ties. And now he's working on pinning Lavergne to that spot around April 26th, 2010.

Sanford says he's taken all the information to Harris County Police since Ali's case is in their hands. They say they'll continue to investigate any leads that come their way.

Three years later, HCSO classifies missing Spring teen's disappearance as cold case

Sunday, September 29, 2013
Elissa Rivas

SPRING, TX (KTRK) -- It's been more than three years since Ali Lowitzer went missing, but her mother is not giving up hope of finding her. The teen's mom is using social media to continue to search for her daughter.

o Ann Lowitzer hasn't seen her daughter, Ali, since April 26, 2010. The images of Ali were recorded on the school bus that day. It's just a two-minute walk from her family's home in Spring, but Ali never made it home, never made it to work that night.

"It was at that point that we realized something was wrong. It's just not right for Ali to be gone and not let anybody know that she's going somewhere with somebody," her father, John Lowitzer, said.

Her clothes, makeup, cash and cell phone charger were all left behind. Three years later, Harris County sheriff investigators have officially taken on her disappearance as a cold case, and Ali's mother, Jo Ann Lowitzer, keeps pushing to find her using social media.

"We're able to reach thousands of people not only through Facebook but on Twitter," she said.

On a Facebook page called "Hope for Ali" and through her Twitter account, she writes to Ali and to those who're helping in the continued search. Years of looking for her daughter have not turned up any solid leads.

"This is the part that gets hard, because it's not good what you think. When your child is missing, and you think that somebody took them, the thoughts that go through your head are not good," Jo Ann said.

But she pushes those thoughts aside and gains strength from the renewed effort to find Ali.

"People don't just disappear off the face of the earth," John said. "That's our daughter, and she belongs here. We have the right to know where she's at what's happened to her. We just ask for that one person to step up and do the right thing."

The Lowitzers are planning a benefit to raise money so they and Texas Equusearch can continue to search.

Please call the police or the Laura Recovery Center at 281-482-5723 if you have any information.

Spring resident continues search for missing daughter

Posted: Tuesday, June 10, 2014 10:30 pm
By Petrina J. Johnson

It has been four years since Jo Ann Lowitzer’s daughter Alexandria disappeared without a trace and Lowitzer said she will never give up on finding her “Ali.”

On April 26, 2010, 16-year-old Alexandria (Ali) got off her school bus and headed toward her new job at the Burger Barn. She never made it to work, which was a quarter of a mile from her home. Lowitzer said her daughter wanted to pick up her check and possibly work a few hours.

“Four years, that is a long time,” she said, “every day I try to do something to keep pushing to get Ali’s face out there. I don’t want anyone to forget that Ali is still missing.”

It is a difficult time, Lowitzer said, but she tries to remain positive. In the beginning Ali was considered a “runaway.” Lowitzer said law enforcement did question some of Ali’s classmates who exited the school bus with her and employees at her job. They concluded that since there was no evidence of a crime, they would classify Ali as a runaway.

“Ali did not run away, I know she did not run away,” said Lowitzer. “She was actively involved in Girl Scouts, choir, art and softball and was looking forward to planning a birthday party for a friend. Her cell phone charger, clothes and money — all the things she would have taken if she ran away — were still in her room.”

The story aired on an episode of Investigation Discovery’s New Series “Last Seen Alive — Missing Young Woman from Texas” on Sunday, June 8.

Lowitzer said she hopes the show will help her be one step closer in finding her daughter. After believing Ali was alive for three years, Lowitzer shared how at one point she stopped believing. She credits her private investigator Amber Cammack for helping her believe again.

“She (Amber) is great. She believes Ali is alive and she is working this case as if Ali is alive. And she does everything pro bono, it is a blessing,” said Lowitzer. “The theme is hope for Ali, I am not giving up.”
