The family of a missing Tampa mom believe she is “in danger” and are pleading with the public for help.

“It just kind of feels like a nightmare that I just can’t wake up from,” Ashley Darling told The Tampa Bay Times about the disappearance of her sister, Teneisha Griffith.

Griffith, the youngest of four sisters, hasn’t been seen for days and her family is doing whatever they can to try to find the missing 27-year-old.

“Facebook Friends and Family Please Share! It only takes a second... My sister Teneisha Griffith 27 years old, has been missing for 4 days,” Darling wrote in a Facebook post earlier this week. “Last heard from on Friday night in Tampa. She is believed to be in danger.

Tampa Police have also put a plea out to find Griffith, saying the 27-year-old was last seen in South Tampa and is believed to be driving a white 2008 Nissan Altima.

“The Tampa Police Department and her family are concerned for her well being,” police said.

According to her family, Griffith returned home from her job with Amazon around 3 p.m. on Friday. She later texted with her father that night, but it’s the last time anyone has heard from her.

The family grew concerned the next day when Griffith’s friends reached out to say that she had not shown up on Saturday to a planned gathering.

Griffith also stopped answering text messages and didn't call her 12-year-old daughter — who is currently living with Griffith’s mother — all weekend, which her family says was usual for her.

Darling and Griffith’s sister, Rena Walters, say it's unlike their little sister to leave without telling anyone and described her to the local paper as responsible and smart.

They’ve now been scouring the local community for any sign of the missing woman or her vehicle — which they believe could be key to finding her.

“We’ve been out looking for her, but we’ve had absolutely no leads, no tips — nothing,” Walters said.

Griffith’s family is asking that anyone with information her disappearance to come forward and share what they know.

“Nothing is too small,” Darling said.

Oxygen.com reached out to the Tampa Police Department to get an update on the case, but did not receive an immediate response.

Police have asked that anyone with information call 813-231-6130.
