Family Of Missing Woman Last Seen At Train Station Recall Her Chilling Phone Call
Dana Holt's mother said she called her on the day she was last seen, telling her "Oh my gosh, he’s getting out of the shower. I got to go."
Relatives say a St. Louis woman who disappeared upon arriving at a Texas train station is being held against her will by an unknown man.
Dana Holt, 30, was last seen when surveillance cameras captured her disembarking from an Amtrak train at Dallas’ Eddie Bernice Johnson Union Station, according to NBCDFW.com. Dallas police said they spotted Dana Holt arriving at the train station at around noon on March 1.
Relatives of the St. Louis woman are unsure what prompted Holt to travel to Texas.
“I may not know my sister’s intentions, but I know something is seriously wrong,” her sister, Audrey Clay, told the outlet. “Because my sister wouldn’t just up and leave like that.”
Clay told Kansas City’s Fox 4 that detectives told her an unidentified man approached Dana soon after she arrived at the station. She told reporters she had yet to see the security footage herself.
“He approaches Dana and helps my sister with her bags,” said Clay. “Then, they walked to the south end of the platform and go off-camera. That was it. I haven’t seen the footage yet.”
That same day, Dana’s mother, Deborah Holt, said she received an alarming phone call from Dana, who was crying and in a panic, according to Fox 4.
“She sounded terrified and scared,” said Deborah Holt. “I was like, ‘Where are you?’ She was like, ‘Oh my gosh, he’s getting out of the shower. I got to go.’ That was it. I didn’t get to say I love you or anything.”
Dana told her family, “He won’t let me leave,” and, “I can’t get any of my stuff.”
The Dallas Police Department describes Dana as a Black female with blond hair and brown eyes. She is approximately 5’9” and 250 pounds and was last seen wearing a black jacket and black pants. She has a tattoo on her neck and her chest.
Police said “she may be in need of assistance.”
The family told local reporters that Dana suffers from a blood condition and lives with mental illness, according to Fox 4. They hope that anyone with information will come forward.
“Anything that you think would be a piece of evidence, I would call it in,” said Clay. “It may be that one thing that breaks our case wide open. Whoever has her, you took somebody very close to us, and I will not stop until I get my sister back.”
Dana’s family created a GoFundMe page to raise funds to help them continue their out-of-state searches in Texas, including travel costs.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Dallas Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit at 214-671-4268.
