    ASTORIA, Queens— A family is searching for their daughter, who went missing after leaving LaGuardia airport on Thursday.

    Sierra Shields, 30, is a flight attendant, who was last seen around noon on January 14 at LaGuardia airport.

    Shields, who is a flight attendant, had just finished speaking to her supervisor and then left the airport— she was in uniform.

    She was scheduled to fly later that day, but never made the flight, and has not been seen since. Her phone and wallet were found at her apartment.

    Sheilds’s pastor, Larry Mayberry, said that Shields had spoken to his wife earlier in the week and did not discuss anything that seemed life threatening, or altering.

    A few questions I have...
    What was she discussing with her supervisor? Was she being reprimanded?
    Where was she walking when she left? How do they know she left the airport?
    How much later was her next flight? Did she have time to go home? Her phone and wallet were found at home...

    How close is her home to LaGuardia?

    Just thinking out loud.

    Her FB https://www.facebook.com/sierra.shields.7?ref=br_rs

    She's lives with one, possibly two, female roommates. (From my experience that's very common in the airline industry)

    She appears to be very well loved and the airline community, including those no longer working with her, all seem to be working to get the word out.

    Nearly every person who has used a descriptor about her has used "sweet" or "nice" and said glowing things about her.

    Friends have made posters in Spanish to distribute, as well.

    Hundreds of FB profile photos changed to her pic or the missing poster and they're getting lots of shares even just from friends with just a post on their personal FB pages (in some cases thousands per post from just friends of personal people who know her)

    Her sister is easy to find from this FB and is posting a lot.

    Also easy to find things using the various hashtags they're using - the #mysweetsierra or #oursweetsierra one is unique enough to only be related to her

    Here's what it pulls up on FB but you can put in all the variations or click on the hashtags to see various others posting https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/oursweetsierra?source=feed_text&story_id=1658639874391494

    https://twitter.com/hashtag/OurSweetSierra?src=hash

    And the FindSierraNYC one also https://twitter.com/hashtag/findsierranyc?f=tweets&vertical=default&src=hash

    They're being really organized here about posting the fliers in various languages (getting in translated by others who work for the airline) to post in various parts of the city.

    They're showing which hospitals have been contacted, etc.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1527548360907368/?hc_location=ufi

    They're also looking for suggestions/ideas on that part of the site also for other things to try/ways to search/etc.

    I think there are things that aren't being said here, but it's not the public's business, I guess.

    What does it mean she just finished speaking to her supervisor?

    What does it mean that she was last seen leaving the airport on foot? Does that mean she was leaving the airport property walking along the road, or does it mean she was last seen leaving the terminal headed to the transportation area (shuttles, cabs or parking garage).

    What do you believe isn't being said? Might help the search.

    She was last seen speaking to her supervisor where she mysteriously quit her job.

    Sierra Shields, 30, who worked for an agency that provides attendants for Delta and United, had been depressed for several days, said relatives, who put up a Facebook page, Find* Sierra Shields, seeking information.

    “We all love her and we all look forward to sharing our life with her,’’ her father, Chris Shields, told The Post.

    “We’d just love for her to come home.”

    Everything right now points to her disappearing voluntarily IMO. Quitting job, returning the uniform. Phone left at home. I hope she's just taking a break and maybe at a hotel/a friend's somewhere and didn't do anything to hurt herself :(

    Sierra is said to live in Astoria. LaGuardia Airport is only about 3 miles from Astoria.
    She, easily, could have walked it and left her wallet/phone at home.

    Earlier, she spoke by phone with her mother and father.

    “By the distress and everything that took place on Thursday, she was suffering through something,” said her father, Chris Shields.

    Police worry the missing woman may be suicidal because she once told her father she could see God on the other side of the East River and wanted to swim across it.
