Family members say they're frantically looking for a Delta flight attendant from Queens who hasn't been seen since last week, when she apparently quit her job ahead of a flight and walked out of LaGuardia Airport.
The father of Sierra Shields says that his daughter was last seen leaving the airport at about noon on Thursday. She had been scheduled to work a flight originating from the airport, but apparently turned off her flight equipment and walked out instead.
Shields, 30, was seen leaving the airport on foot, but it's not clear if she got in a car or bus afterward. She may have been wearing her flight attendant outfit when she left.
The NYPD says it is working with the family to find Shields, who is originally from south suburban Chicago.
Family members have told other media outlets that she may have been depressed.
The woman's family has distributed missing posters throughout the city, and they've set up a "Find Sierra Shields" Facebook page for the woman.
"She lives her life by God's word and is such an amazing, helpful, and caring daughter, sister, and friend," an administrator for the page said in a post on Saturday. "All of us who know her, love her very much!"
Shields is described as being about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. She has brown eyes, black hair and medium complexion.
Anyone with information on Shields' whereabouts is asked to call 347-670-3329 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
