Police: Boyfriend no help in search for missing teen whose mom, sister found dead

TEXAS CITY, Texas -- Search teams will be back out in Texas City this morning looking for signs of a missing teen near the bar where her boyfriend was arrested.

Kirsten Fritch is just 16 years old and hasn't been seen since her mother and sister were found shot to death in their Baytown home.

ABC13 has learned from police that Kirsten's mother and her sister were killed between 12 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday when Kirsten's grandmother called police. Breanna Pavlicek was just 13 years old. Mom Cynthia Morris was 37.

Police are not sure whether Kirsten was in school on Monday but they say she did "communicate with friends" that day. Kirsten's aunt told Eyewitness News this morning that Kirsten was "getting into runaway mode" and skipped class a lot.
