A California mom of two has gone missing on a trip to Miami where her boyfriend was planning to propose, according to reports.
Angela Morrisey, 23, was last seen by her boyfriend while waiting to board a tour boat at the Bayside Market Place in downtown Miami on March 28, news station WPLG reported.
“We were in line for the boat and she went to go use the restroom and I just didn’t see her after that,” her boyfriend, Amir El-Badry, told the outlet.
He said the pair had traveled there from Sacramento just two days earlier and he planned to use the trip to ask for her hand in marriage.
“I really came out here because I wanted a romantic setting, because I was going to propose to her,” El-Badry told the outlet.
But her worried mother said El-Badry hasn’t been able to keep his story straight about Morrisey’s disappearance.
“I continued to ask him because I was like these details don’t make sense. So, I was asking questions about this and that, and he would be like, ‘Wait a minute, that’s what I said,’” Darnella Melancon told news station WFOR-TV.
Melancon said she had been texting with her daughter in the days leading up to her disappearance — but then Morrisey went silent on the day she vanished.
“I’m hurting in my soul wondering where my daughter is,” Melancon said.
She said she’s currently taking care of Morrisey’s two daughters.
“I have her two daughters here, my granddaughters, and they’ve been asking for her every day. ‘Mommy, where’s Mommy? When can Mommy come? We want to talk to Mommy.’ And it’s hard because I don’t really know what words to really say,” she said.
