The search continues for a San Antonio mother who vanished before her work day began last week. Chrissy Powell called into the law office where she works as a paralegal last Tuesday to let them know she was running late, but she never arrived to begin her duties. Now her family and law enforcement have reason to believe that Chrissy may be in danger.
The family was able to obtain a vital clue for law enforcement early on in the investigation by virtue of Chrissy’s front door camera. The video shows Chrissy leaving the house in a rush that Tuesday morning, confirming that she did make it out of the house before vanishing. However, Powell also left her cell phone behind in the home, which the family believes was due to her rushing out around 10:30 that morning. The San Antonio Police Department has put out a BOLO (‘Be on the lookout’) for her black Nissan Rogue that she would have driven to her job.
The uncharacteristic radio silence and failure to appear has family and friends extremely concerned about Chrissy Powell’s whereabouts and well-being. Powell’s close friend, Lauren Leal, told KENS5 that their unanswered questions were terrifying, “The unknown is the scariest part. The fear in my mind right now. It is hard to wrap our minds around where she might be, what could have happened. My fear is not ever knowing anything.”
The San Antonio Police Department has distributed flyers with the name and face of Chrissy Powell to make the public aware of the search. Law enforcement are also gravely concerned, as Powell has a medical condition that requires care by a doctor, and have labeled her a ‘missing endangered adult’ as a result.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Chrissy Powell is encouraged to call SAPD’s Missing Person’s Unit at 210-207-7660
