MIRAMAR (CBS4) – It’s been five days since the family of Vilet Torrez has heard from her and now Torrez’s family is beside themselves with fear.

Torrez lived Miramar and left behind her children, her family, and all of her friends.

“If your sister, your brother, your close relative vanishes into thin air, you’re distraught,” said Javier Blanco, Torrez’s brother. “You want to know what’s happening.”

During a Wednesday press conference with Miramar Police, new pictures of Torrez were released showing the mother with a big smile on her face. Her family said that how she always is at home.

“She was always happy, never angry, even when things should have angered her,” Blanco said, on the verge of tears. “She was always happy; she was always positive; optomistic about everything, about life, that’s how she succeeded.”

Investigators told CBS4 they’re checking to see if her credit cards have been used. The last time anyone saw her was Friday, when she had dinner with a friend. Now, cops are following every lead and scrape of information they receive.

“We’re just following anything that we can find out from family, friends, surveillance, from the phones, anything and everything,” said Miramar Detective Jonathon Zeller.

If you have any information, call Miramar Police at 954-602-4000 or Broward Crimestoppers at (954)-493-TIPS.
