Connecticut Police Ask The Public For Help Locating Missing Mother Jessica Edwards
Jessica Edwards' family say she would never abandon her 7-month-old son.
Police in Connecticut have made a plea to the public for help in locating the an area woman who mysteriously vanished.
Jessica Edwards, 30, was last seen on May 10 around 7 am, according to a South Windsor Police Department press release. Sgt. Mark Cleverdon said at a press conference that her husband was the last known person to see her that morning, NBC News reports. Her mother and sister last saw her on Mothers Day.
“Jessica left her residence with an unknown person and called out of her clinical training at Hartford Hospital," police tweeted.
Her sister Yanique Edwards told the Hartford Courant that Jessica emailed her professor at about 2:20 a.m. on Monday, saying she would not be attending. The clinical training was part of a class Jessica was taking at community college.
Yanique told the outlet she found it stranger that her sister did not also notify a representative at the hospital.
Edwards is the mother of a 7-month-old son and her family told NBC Connecticut that she would never abandon him.
This week, investigators announced that they are searching surveillance footage for any clues as to what might have happened to Edwards, the Connecticut Post reports.
“We have not had any luck tracking down the person Jessica is believed to have left the house with, nor was there a description of the vehicle or the person who she supposedly left with,” Cleverdon said on Wednesday, adding that there has not been any activity on the missing mom’s cellphone, social media or financial records since she vanished.
It's not clear if police believe there is any foul play.
Edwards is described as about 5-foot-3 and 150 pounds. Her family is hoping that anyone with information will come forward.
"I need my daughter,” Edwards' mother, Hope Edwards, told NBC Connecticut.
Anyone with information is urged to call the South Windsor Police Department at 860-644-2551.
