(KTXL) — Sacramento Police is asking for the public’s help in locating Aeris Hammock, a missing 24-year-old woman that hasn’t been seen since Dec. 9.
According to police, Hammock is considered at-risk due to a medical condition. Her parents told FOX40 News that she left the house alone in her gray Mustang around 1:30 Friday afternoon.
“When it started getting about 9 or 10 p.m., things were closing now and we still hadn’t really heard from her. That started setting off red flags,” Leilani Hammock, her mother, told FOX40 News.
Hammock was last seen on Friday in the area of 3rd Avenue and 30th Street in South Sacramento, police said.
Her parents say that they left their Roseville home in search of her, but when they found her car in Sacramento, something was off.
“The car was unlocked and the keys were in the car. They’re able to track the vehicle because of her phone, which was in the glove box,” Aeris’s father, Charles, said.
Not only were her belongings in the car, but her phone had been wiped. Texts, emails and calls going back days and weeks were erased.
A family spokesperson says that a lot of information was erased from Aeris Hammock’s phone.
“Everything in her emails, voicemails, calls out, calls in, text messages,” Dee Ingram said. “Everything was erased back at least six months on every single one. Somebody went to great lengths to erase a lot of information.”
Neighbors that spoke with FOX40 News said that they had spotted Aeris Hammock and remember her mentioning that she was looking for a man named “Chris.”
Her parents, with no other communication with their daughter, fear the worst and are now reaching out to the public for help.
They say that she has an arrow tattoo on her forearm and that she may have a purse with a black and gold chain with her.
Police describe Hammock as being 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 170 pounds, with blonde hair and brown eyes.
She was last seen wearing a black/white sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and pink/lavender Uggs, police said.
On Monday afternoon, police shared an image from surveillance footage that shows Hammock and the clothing that she was wearing around the time of her disappearance.
The police ask anyone with information regarding Hammock to call 916-808-5471.
