Mother Of Missing Brooklyn Woman: ‘This Has Been A Nightmare’
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are continuing to search for a 27-year-old Brooklyn woman who disappeared without a trace over the weekend.
Sabrina Malone was last seen around 8:30 p.m. Saturday at 115 Columbia St., along the East River in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn, heading back to her home in Crown Heights after leaving her parents’ apartment.
Malone’s mother, Paula Manning, became concerned after her daughter failed to show up the next morning at Ikea where she has worked for three years.
“I was very nervous and I instantly called the police,” Manning told WCBS 880′s Alex Silverman. “This is not like her at all, she’s very responsible.”
No one has seen Malone and it appears she hasn’t used her cell phone or credit cards since her disappearance, Silverman reported.
Manning said police showed up at their home at 2 a.m. to show the family a photo of a woman at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, but it wasn’t Malone.
“This has been a nightmare for us all,” Manning said. “We don’t know where she’s at, abandoned somewhere, we don’t know anything. As we go to bed at night, we don’t know if she’s hurt somewhere.”
Police told CBS 2 they are concerned for Malone’s safety. She has no criminal history.
“Sabrina, you have a whole family that loves you, misses you. We just want to hear your voice, we just want to know that you’re okay,” Manning said in a message to her daughter. “We’re praying and we’re just hoping to see you again alive and well.”
Malone is described as black and about 5-foot-3, weighing about 155 pounds, and with brown eyes, long curly black hair and a tattoo on her hand.
She was last seen wearing blue sneakers, a gray sweat shirt, and gray jeans.
“We just want to say to whoever may be holding my daughter, if that’s one of the possibilities, or if you know anything please, she’s a good girl,” Manning said. “Her family misses her, her family needs her. We just want her home.”
“She’s a daughter, she’s a sister, she’s a niece, she’s so many things to so many people,” Manning added.
Anyone with information on Malone’s whereabouts was asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS, log onto the Crime Stoppers Web site, or text tips to CRIMES (274637) and enter TIP577.
