Search continues for BX woman last seen at Empire City Casino

Family members say the search is continuing for their loved one last seen one week ago at Empire City Casino in Yonkers.

Nicole Sainten's mother Deanna says she last saw the 44-year-old after giving her money to get food at around 2 p.m. Family and friends, who posted 600 flyers around the borough, say the mother suffers from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and hasn't taken her medication in over two weeks.

The family told News 12 The Bronx that casino security located some surveillance video from the day Sainten went missing. In the video, Sainten can be seen buying food from the food court but does not eat it. Instead, she puts it down and then wanders around like something is wrong.
