North Carolina authorities are searching for a missing Wilmington woman who may have thrown out her cellphone in fear of someone tracking her.
According to the Wilmington Police Department, 43-year-old Kristin Glass has not been seen or heard from since October 5. She was last seen at Topsail Beach, according to a missing persons flyer shared on social media.
On Monday, authorities found her cellphone off of the side of the road, behind a trashcan at Topsail Beach, Port City Daily reports. Topsail Beach Police Chief Samuel Gervase told the outlet that authorities believe she threw her phone from a car window because she thought she was being tracked via her phone’s GPS.
Gervase didn’t specify if he knew who would be following her.
