NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are searching for a pregnant mother from Queens who vanished during a trip to the bank two days ago.
As CBS2’s Reena Roy reported, new surveillance video shows the moments before she disappeared.
Amarjit Kaur, 34, of Ozone Park, is a loving wife and mother to two 7-year-old twin boys, with another little one on the way. Her husband said she’s seven weeks pregnant.
Lakhwinder Multani said his wife left their 128th Street home for the bank around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. She parked her car on 114th Street and Liberty Avenue, paid for about an hour of parking and then walked two blocks to a Chase Bank where she deposited a check.
The mother’s 7-year-old twins waited for her at school, but she never showed up. Her husband used GPS to track down her car and found her cell phone in the front seat, along with deposit slips from the bank and an expired meter ticket.
“The school had called. She never went to pick up the kids, then I got worried and started calling,” Multani said. “I’m feeling very bad, kids feeling very bad. We’re waiting for her.”
In their 15 years of marriage and of living here in the neighborhood for just as long, Multani never expected this.
“She means to me a lot, she was good to me all the time. We had never problems,” Multani said. “Whatever happens I want her to come back.”
Adding to the mystery, Multani said several incoming calls from an unknown number were on his wife’s abandoned phone prompting him to call the number back.
A man answered saying he was looking for money someone owed him, but he had the wrong number and hung up.
Police describe Kaur as about 5-foot-4, 195 pounds with a medium build. She was last seen wearing a black long sleeved shirt and yellow pants.
Kaur’s parents and extended family in India have been calling her husband for any information, but many questions remain unanswered.
