Makenna’s aunt, Allison McCullough, told it abc news that she loved playing softball, doing gymnastics, singing and dancing. “Your smile would light up a room,” she said.

Makenna’s father asked Tuesday, May 24, if he could go to the local funeral home to look for his daughter, fearing “she may not be alive,” television network KTRK reported. Her family later asked for privacy.
