Police, family search for missing Lauderdale Lakes woman, 22
Posted March 3 2006
A Lauderdale Lakes woman vanished four weeks ago, and her family fears that she might be in danger, Broward Sheriff's officials said Thursday.
Marsha Bell, 22, left home to pick up her mother from work Jan. 29 and hasn't been seen or heard from since. She had nothing but the clothes on her back and $5 in the bank, said Detective Juanita Reid.
Bell hasn't used her cell phone, credit cards or bank card since that day, and no one has seen her white 1994 Toyota Corolla (Florida tag number P629YS), officials said.
"We don't know, at this point, whether she just hit the road and drove away, or whether she's gone into a canal, or what," said sheriff's spokesman Jim Leljedal.
Detectives entered Bell and her car into national missing person's databases but received no matches, Leljedal said.
Bell, a Jamaican woman, is 5 feet 7, 140 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 954-321-4240 or Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
