Wisconsin police are searching for a young woman who vanished last month in Milwaukee without any indication that she voluntarily left.
Emily Rogers, 23, was last seen on April 26 at around 4:30 p.m. in the 2500 block of West Becher Street, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Police said Rogers’ cellphone was found near Burnham Park, in some bushes near 36th and Branting.
Police shut down the park Monday while searching for Rogers, who was reportedly at the park with her boyfriend before she disappeared, according to her friends, Fox 6 reports. Search crews spent hours combing the park for Rogers without luck.
“I think something bad happened to her,” friend McKayla Mackey told Fox 6.
“Just, if anybody knows anything, just please say something. If you got cameras that caught something, say something. Anything, even something a little suspicious – you’re like, ‘Maybe not?’ It might be the piece that we need. We’re missing something, and someone here in Milwaukee had to see something. I just want to find her and bring her home because her daughter needs her.”
Friends said Rogers is the mother of a 1-year-old who was initially reported missing, but later found safe. Police confirmed that the child was found safe but offered no other information.
Rogers is described as a white female with medium-length brown hair and an unknown tattoo on one of her legs. She stands 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs around 180 pounds. She was last seen wearing a T-shirt, skinny jeans, and black-and-gold Timberland boots.
Anyone with information on Rogers’ whereabouts should call the Sensitive Crimes Division at 414-935-7405.
