“Help us, please,” said a sobbing Earlene Ray.
Her mother, 55-year-old Stephanie Ray Clemons, simply vanished 12 days ago.
She was last seen by a neighbor at her Miramar apartment doing laundry around noon on May 20.
Her daughter has since called and texted her mom, messages that have not been returned.
“I was just letting her know I love her, I still love her. I just want you to bring her home. Please help me find her,” said the missing woman’s daughter through tears.
Stephanie Clemons was not ill, had no emotional issues. Miramar police are gravely concerned that while she went missing, her car was found in its usual space at her apartment.
“Any help, any minute information you might have about Stephanie would be definitely needed and appreciated,” said Miramar Detective Carlos Villalona.READ MORE: Search Resumes For Missing 19-Year-Old Miya Marcano After Person Of Interest Found Dead
“She goes to work, she comes home, she stays in touch with her family,” said Clemon’s sister Sylvia Ray.
A medical assistant at Jackson Memorial, Clemons was a meticulous worker but no one at the hospital, no friends, no one, has heard a word from her.
If she took a trip, she did not pack anything.
“She loves to be with her family, so it’s really weird that she’s not here. Her birthday was this past Monday, and she’s missing. We have no clue where she is,” said Clemon’s niece Tiffany Ray.
Police don’t believe Stephanie Ray Clemons chose to disappear.
They continue talking to everyone who knew her but has named no suspect or person of interest at this point.
If you have information, you’re asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
