The search for a missing 19-year-old mother in central New York took investigators on Friday to a site about 10 miles from where she was last seen, but they’re only saying they’re “following up on any lead we can.”
Elizabeth Garrow was last seen at a Dunkin’ in Canastota just before noon on Wednesday. She was reportedly with her husband at the time, but she’s not been seen or heard from since, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said.
Garrow is a “homebody” who dotes on her 1-year-old daughter, family members told CNYCentral, and she is six-weeks pregnant with her second child.

“She loves being a mother more than anything in the world, she doesn’t want to do anything but mother – not even work,” Melissa Bush, one of her sisters, said.
Another sister, Emily Lloyd, said that Garrow is “very friendly … and to be gone and be like poof — it’s weird.”
Madison County Sheriff Todd Hood told WSYR that Garrow’s husband is currently in custody on an unrelated charge.

“Her husband was talking to investigators earlier and he is in custody with us right now, ” Hood said.
Hood said deputies had followed leads to a spot near the shores of Oneida Lake, about 10 miles from Canastota.
“We have callers and investigative tools that we use in law enforcement, and it brought us to this location down here,” he said. “We are in numerous locations around the county and Central New York right now, following up on any lead that we can. And that is the main thing I want to get across.”
Garrow is described as a Black woman, about 5 feet 10 inches, with brown eyes and hair. She was last seen wearing jeans with holes and flip flops.
