A Staten Island mother, 34, has inexplicably vanished, and her family is concerned for her safety.
Laura Lyons, a resident of the borough of Staten Island in New York City, was last seen on Friday at about 8:45 a.m. heading to the bus stop at 7492 Amboy Road. After that, she disappeared without a trace.
According to Mary Heffner, Lyon’s sister, who spoke to DailyMail.com, she was unaware that Lyon was gone until she received a call from her sister’s boyfriend on Sunday afternoon.
“We were scared. That is 48 hours or two days. She remarked, “We could have begun searching for her sooner.
Lyon’s lover, according to the upset sister, was the last one to see her. She went to the Medicaid office before heading to her work at Burger King, he informed her.
Heffner said that the boy’s father is the son’s sister’s roommate. Lyons spent Thursday night with her son before going back to her Tottenville residence.
She revealed that her sister and her boyfriend had been dating for the last four years, on and off. He has been participating with the inquiry, according to her, and has been questioned by police.
He also gave Heffner two potential destinations for her sister. Although the Staten Island Ferry and Ward’s Point are close to Conference House Park, where the Conference House is situated, I found it strange that he brought up the ferry.
I have no idea why he mentioned the Ferry. She has no need to go alone to the metropolis, where he has a job.
She said that nothing was found despite authorities searching both sides of the Staten Island Ferry. In an effort to follow up on any leads that could lead her to her lost loved one, they have also traveled by air and on foot.
Heffner said that on Monday, she combed the expansive grounds of the Hylan Boulevard historical site.
She said that her sister’s phone had stopped working, and she was hoping that the police may be able to find her using the tablet she always had with her.
“Never would my sister commit suicide or vanish,” I said. She is acting in a really unusual way for her. I’m quite worried. There has been no trace of her for five days. The gorgeous Lyons, who has blonde hair and blue eyes, is 5 feet 7 inches tall and 125 pounds. She was last seen sporting a red winter coat with lion’s mane around the hood, black shoes, and black yoga pants.
According to a spokeswoman for the NYPD, authorities need help from the public to find Lyons.
They didn’t provide any other details about the case.
In the family’s efforts to spread the message, she has served as the focal point.
She also spoke to DailyMail.com on how tiring and hard it has been to care for her five-month-old child while searching for her loved one.
She said that during the last several years, her sister had struggled with anxiety and despair, and that “Covid didn’t improve whatsoever.”
About two weeks ago, she started working at Burger King, and things began to look good for her.
She was ecstatic and joyful. She was looking for a manager’s post while putting her life back together.
She said that her sister, a stay-at-home mother, had a strong bond with her son.
She said that while she wasn’t working, she spent her free time with her kid, bringing him to his activities, going on walks, and taking him to their favorite places, Dave & Busters and Fun Station.
She remarked, “She’s a very terrific mum.”
Five days before she vanished, on October 16, the two had last communicated.
She said, “This doesn’t make any sense.” My sister is resourceful, intelligent, and competent, and she would defend herself if someone came after her.
She is incredibly giving. She will assist anybody in need, but she is wise enough to avoid putting herself in danger, according to Heffner.
“She would also never simply abandon her kid,” she said.
Sharing a message for her sister, she said, “Laura, locate someone who can phone us or call 911.” We’ll keep searching until we locate you.
The last time Lyons arrived at work was on Monday, October 17, according to a manager at the Burger King on Page Avenue on Staten Island who spoke to DailyMail.com. She was supposed to work from 4 to 10 p.m., but according to the management, she departed between 9 and 9:15 p.m.
She said that on Tuesday, October 18, she will be off work. She canceled her scheduled shift on Wednesday two hours beforehand. She had another day off on Thursday, then she didn’t show up for her shifts on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
“She never called.” The manager remarked, “She didn’t show.” Anyone with information on this event is requested to contact the Crime Stoppers Hotline of the NYPD at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or 1-888-57-PISTA for Spanish-speaking callers (74782).
