Teen last seen with unidentified man is likely endangered, FBI joins search

The FBI announced Monday that they’re involved in the ongoing search for a Nebraska woman who was reported missing in late April.

In a statement, the FBI said they’re seeking information regarding the disappearance of Sunny Sramek, 18, who they said was last seen April 20 in Trenton. Sramek was reportedly spotted in a white 2004 Ford Explorer with Iowa license plate HGJ-34. However, the Omaha World-Herald reported that the vehicle has been recovered.

“It is critical that if the public has information, they contact us as she could be in danger,” FBI spokeswoman Michele Stevenson told the Kearney Hub.

A poster issued by the agency stated that Sramek was seen with an unidentified male and was possibly traveling to Omaha with him. A GoFundMe set up by Sramek’s relatives alleged that the man called Sramek’s mother on the evening of April 20 and claimed that he went into Prairie Flower Casino in Carter Lake, Iowa, and came out to discover she wasn’t in the car.

“He said he looked for her, couldn’t find her, so he left,” the post said, according to NBC News. “[He] left the area [without] Sunny. No call to police. No nothing. At one point his story changed—they stopped at a gas station in Omaha and [he] went in to pay for the gas. When he returned to the vehicle, Sunny was gone.”

Sramek was described as being 5 foot, 7 inches, approximately 180 pounds, and having brown hair and blue eyes. The FBI said she has a tattoo on her left shoulder of a feather with the letters “FLY” and a red tribal sun tattoo on her right ankle.

Anyone with information regarding Sunny Sramek’s whereabouts should call the Omaha Division of the FBI at 402-493-8688.
