NC - Ebonee Spears, 30, Wilmington, 15 January 2016
Mother of missing woman believes daughter is being held against her will
" It's been five days since Harriet Rivers has talked with her daughter. As each hour passes, her worries intensify.
"My mind is telling me to think the best but given the way things are happening around town its hard," Rivers says.
Ebonee Spears, 30, was reported missing by her family after they didn't hear from her Friday night. Spears' 13 year old daughter was spending the night with her grandparents that evening. Rivers says they thought Ebonee might come over for dinner, but she called to say she had already eaten a salad and was good. Rivers says its unlike her daughter to go out on a Friday night."

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Harriet Rivers, mother of Ebonee Spears
Ebonee Spears is missing. The 31-year-old Wilmington woman was last heard from Friday evening when she told her mom she was home watching TV.
By 1 a.m. Saturday, Harriet Rivers realized something was amiss with her youngest child. Spears' friend called to say he'd been at her daughter's house for three hours waiting on her. Her purse and car were there, but she was nowhere to be found.
Now, a week after she disappeared, the family is frantic.
“She just wouldn't walk away,” Rivers said.
On Monday, as the Wilmington Police Department searched Spears' Brooklyn Lane apartment, members of Brunswick Search and Rescue scoured the woods nearby. Neither search offered any clues that police are sharing with the family, Rivers said. As a matter of fact, she added, she filed the missing person report on Saturday and it wasn't until Monday when she heard back from an investigator. If police are taking the issue seriously, she hasn't been reassured of that.
“This isn't a game,” Rivers said. “She's just like gone.”

It's been six days since Harriet Rivers talked with her daughter Ebonee.
"Its been horrible," Ebonee's mom says. "We're trying to do the normal stuff because we got her daughter here and we have two little grandchildren here. We're trying to keep things normal but its hard."
A family friend notified Ebonee's parent's after midnight that he wasn't able to reach Ebonee after trying for hours.
Rivers reported her daughter missing Saturday but says police didn't start their search until after the Martin Luther King holiday.
"We did our own search on Monday," Rivers said with frustration."They did their search on Tuesday. We distributed flyers and everything on Monday. then Tuesday they went out with a team, dogs or whatever and searched the surrounding area neighborhood.
Rivers thinks the department took too long to start a search.
So does Coquitta Whitaker, Ebonee's best friend since middle school.

Ebonee Spears, 30, has been missing since since January 18 and former UNCW co-workers are hoping to keep the spirit alive for her search.
Spears was last seen at the Pointe at Taylor Estates. Detectives said it is still just a missing persons case, but family members believe it is more than that. Spears’ mother has stated she is very concerned about her daughter’s health because she has recently been diagnosed with lupus.
A UNCW spokeswoman confirmed Spears worked as a temporary employee last spring and summer in the university’s history department.
