The family of an East New York woman who walked out of her home last week is asking for the public’s help in finding her.
Camille Reffell says her family has been extremely worried, since her niece, 26-year-old Sierra Coombs went missing last Friday.
Her family says she walked out without any of her belongings. They say she didn’t even have shoes on her feet.
“Her dad was at home with her and he just heard the door open and close and when he looked outside he didn’t see her. So, she might have just run,” says Reffell.
The family says she left around 9 a.m. last Friday near the corner of Lincoln and Dumont avenues.
The 26-year-old, who’s a counselor at a group home, is about 5 feet 11 inches and around 140 pounds.
“Sierra is very sweet. She keeps to herself most of the time she doesn’t really party she doesn’t really go out,” says Reffell.
Her family says she’s gone missing before, but never for this long. Refell says Sierra has some health issues that requires her to be on medication, which she hasn’t had access to since she left.
“If someone sees her and called her by her name she might not respond to her name because she gets disoriented, and if they see her follow her and dial 911 and have the police or an ambulance come and meet them, because if they approach her she might take up running, she might think she’s in harm’s way,” says Reffell.
Reffell says she and her family are trying to stay positive.
“We just want her back. We just need to know that she’s safe,” says Reffell.
