This woman was visiting with relatives when she said she was going to Detroit, to see a friend. The friend said they got into an argument, and he asked her to leave. She has a son, who only wants his mother back.
She works at a brokerage firm, and they have not heard from her either. Her car is also missing.

Can someone find a news link?

I haven't been able to find a thing. (Very busy here, but would appreciate it if anyone else could find something.)
Hope and prayers. So sad not knowing a thing for her family. I would have thought her brokerage firm would put some reward/effort out.
