A California woman who disappeared in Florida while vacationing with her boyfriend was found safe on Thursday.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Angela Morrisey was last seen at the Bayside Market Place in Miami on March 28. She was on vacation with her boyfriend, 23-year-old Amir El-Badry, at the time of her disappearance. El-Badry claimed Morrisey went into a bathroom while they were waiting on a boat tour and never returned.
“We were in line for the boat and she went to go use the restroom and I just didn’t see her after that,” El-Badry told Local 10 News.
CBS Miami reports that Morrisey called 911 on Friday. The call was made from the 7200 Block of NW 79th Terrace in Medley. Morrisey told the dispatcher she was in need of medical attention. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment and later transferred to another facility for further medical treatment.
Detectives with the Miami Police Department’s Special Victims Unit interviewed Morrisey in the hospital, but it’s still unclear what happened to her and why she disappeared for two weeks.
“She was alone and did not appear to be in distress,” Miami Assistant Police Chief Armando Aguilar said, according to the Sacramento Bee.
“Thank you to everyone, for your prayers, your help (and) concern, and for getting the word out,” Morrisey’s mother, Darnella Melancon, wrote. “The gratitude we have cannot be expressed in words. A special shout-out to Chief Art Acevedo and the Miami PD Special Victims Unit.”
According to Assistant Police Chief Armando Aguilar, El-Badry’s story aligned with other evidence and he’s not considered a suspect in his girlfriend’s disappearance.
