The family of a missing Texas woman is scrambling for answers two months after she disappeared.

Taylor Pomaski was last seen alive at a party on April 25 at a home she lived in with her boyfriend, former San Francisco 49er tight-end, Kevin Ware

Foul play is suspected in her disappearance. Harris County Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives took over the investigation on May 19.

Ware, 40, was arrested by U.S. Marshals on June 11 after allegedly violating bond conditions on unrelated drug and gun charges. He hasn’t been formally charged, however, court documents stipulate the football player is “suspected of murdering” his missing girlfriend, according to KTRK-TV.

Pomaski’s loved ones, who are anxiously awaiting updates in the investigation, were adamant Ware knows “something” about where the 29-year-old is.

"If he's not responsible, he has to know something,” her father, Stephen Pomaski told KTRK-TV.

The Texas woman’s family knew something was amiss when they didn’t hear from her on Mother’s Day. 

"It kind of hit us early in the day,” Stephen Pomaski told KTRK-TV. “We haven't heard from her in a week and a half, two weeks at this point.”

Pomaski abruptly left home without her beloved dog, Molly, according to her family, which her father said was extremely uncharacteristic of his daughter.

"No matter what happens in her life, she always makes sure Molly is taken care of," Stephen Pomaski said.

He now suspects his daughter is in grave danger. 

“I'm terrified for the potential outcome,” the concerned father said. “It breaks my heart.”

Pomaski’s family described her as a “bright and bubbly” young woman with a “big ol’ smile.” Her father noted she was struggling around the time she vanished.

"She went down a rabbit hole,” Stephen Pomaski explained. “There is no doubt she went down a rabbit hole, but you can return from that.”

The investigation into Pomaski's disappearance is ongoing. No further details regarding the investigation were immediately available this week. Harris County Sheriff’s Office wasn’t immediately available for comment this week.

Ware’s defense attorney, meanwhile, denied his client was an official suspect in Pomaski's disappearance.

"The law enforcement agency handling the Pomaski investigation has not named Kevin as a suspect," Coby DuBose told Oxygen.com on Friday. "In reality, the only court document naming him as a suspect is a filing by the District Attorney’s Office in another county that is trying to convince a judge to hold him without bond." 

DuBose said the former NFL player is cooperating with investigators.

"Kevin met with investigators who are investigating Ms. Pomaski’s disappearance and told them everything he knew," he added. "He also let them into his home. And took them room to room."

Ware's lawyer stated that Harris County investigators are speaking with "a number of people about the case." DuBose said he hasn't yet been contacted by detectives.

Ware has a hearing related to his bond revocation on June 29, his lawyer stated.

Ware was due in court on June 23 on a trio of misdemeanor charges, including speeding, driving with an expired license, and for skipping a past court hearing. He’s being held at a Montgomery County detention center, according to online jail records. 

Ware launched his short NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers in 2003. The former tight end also played for the Washington Redskins. He played a total of just two seasons and 16 total games.

Anyone with information related to Pomaski’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-8477 or by emailing info@crime-stoppers.org.
