Eight years after Sandy Nurse mysteriously vanished, police have revealed they're still searching for the New York woman who disappeared while looking for her sister. 

Sandy Nurse, who was 30 years old when she disappeared, had been traveling from Central Nyack, New York to New York City to visit her twin sister, Candy, according to Fox News. It's unclear at what point Sandy went missing: Police are unsure if she ever got on a bus or train, if she ever arrived in the city, or if she ever reunited with her sibling.

Sandy had been diagnosed with bipolar schizophrenia and needs medication, according to statements from police.

Sandy was described as 5'3" tall, African-American, and weighing approximately 120 pounds with brown eyes and black hair, according to MidHudson News, a Peekskill, New York-based news organization. She would be 38 years old now.

The Clarkstown Detective Bureau's Cold Case Unit and the Nurse family have kept Sandy's case open. On October 11, the Clarkstown Police Department posted a press release to Facebook with a picture of Sandy in the hopes of gaining more information about her possible whereabouts.

"The family of Sandy Nurse came to the Clarkstown Police Headquarters 8 years ago to report that Sandy Nurse was missing. Sandy’s last contact with family was that she was getting on a bus to New York City to locate her twin sister, Candy Nurse," reads the post.

The post encouraged anyone with potential leads to call Detective Chazan of the Clarkstown Detective Bureau at 845-639-5845. Anonymous tips may be sent via text message to 847411 — type the keyword ROCKLANDCODA, add a space, type the tip info, and hit send.

Investigators hope that by rereleasing the contents of the case, someone may come forward with crucial information.
