An extensive search of the area of the area was done but there was no sign of Teekah Lewis. A witness at the bowling alley told authorities that an unidentified maroon Pontiac Grand Am sped out of the parking lot during the night Teekah disappeared. The vehicle may have had four doors and was possibly a late 1980’s or early 1990’s model with dark-tinted windows and a large spoiler. Another witness reportedly stated that an unidentified Caucasian nanny may have followed the child to one of the alley’s exits during the night.

The individual is described as being in his 30’s with shoulder-length brown hair. He had facial pockmarks, a mustache, and a large nose. Investigators reportedly don’t know if the vehicle or the unidentified man are connected to Teekah’s case.

A four year old boy reportedly was sexually molested in the bathroom at New Frontier Lanes. This happened in 1998 and two months after Teekah disappeared. The suspect had brown curly hair and a beard. And two security guards believed they’d seen him at the bowling alley before. But they didn’t know his name. A few weeks after that, a Caucasian man with brown hair tried to lure a six year old boy from the same bowling alley. He claimed that he was the child’s father. Earlier on the day Teekah went missing, a man with curly brown hair tried to take two children from a park less than a mile from the bowling alley.

The children’s father chased him away and he fled in a blue 1995 Pontiac Grand Am. The children’s father reportedly didn’t report the incident to the police until three days later. That was after he found out about Teekah’s disappearance in the news. Reportedly, no arrests were made in any of the cases. And it’s unclear whether they are connected to Teekah’s apparent kidnapping.
