FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The sisters of a missing Fort Lauderdale music teacher are doing everything they can to find their missing sibling.
Lisa Hayden, known as Noodles, disappeared on January 24th.
“I can’t believe it’s been 17 days. You go to bed and thinking, ‘Okay, we didn’t find her today.’ And you wake up and you’re like, ‘Oh, no! Another day,’” said Hayden’s sister Tara Cloe.
Hayden’s sisters are in town to continue the search. For them, not knowing what happened to her is what’s most difficult.
“You wake up 16 times a night and the first thing on your mind is your sister. Is she hurting? Is someone hurting her? Is she cold? is she sad?” said her other sister Suzy O’Leary.
Hayden was last seen January 24th at the Poorhouse bar in Fort Lauderdale. She spent most of the evening next door at Revolution Live watching a band. But no one knows what happened next.
“We have a couple theories,” said Cloe. “But they’re just theories, they’re nightmares we have. I don’t know if I want to say them out loud.”
The family is working with divers, as are police. They’re looking to see if her car may be in a river or canal.
“We’re utilizing our marine unit, our dive team,” said Fort Lauderdale Police Detective DeAnna Greenlaw. “We are checking all waterways with in the city of Fort Lauderdale.”
Hayden was a performer. She loved to sing and play the piano and also gave lessons. She had a passion for life and people.
“She’s always happy,” said Cloe. “She’s always got a smile on her face. She’s always singing.”
Her car told a lot about her personality. It was covered with glitter, as well as stickers and a sun and moon decal on the hood.
Her friends and family figure if they can at least find her car, they may get some answers.
“Our sister’s gone,” said O’Leary. “We don’t know what to do. We don’t know where else to go, where else to turn.”
