Wanda Sanders wants her daugher Nicky to come home, missing since September 20.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Wanda Sanders wants answers as to the whereabouts of her 21-year old daughter, who has not been seen since September 20th.
"This is not like her, not to keep in touch," says Wanda Sanders.
Wanda says her daughter Nicky Sanders called and wished her a happy birthday on September 17th and came by her house.
Three days later on September 20th, police say a friend last saw Nicky at Kelly's Place on Kings Road in the evening. The friend left there and later said she had a missed call from Nicky at 5 a.m. the next morning. She hasn't been seen since.
"I am very worried, very worried," said Wanda. "I can't even explain to you how I am feeling right now, it is so unlike her not to contact me. I am emotionally torn, frustrated with what is not going on with JSO. "
Wanda says she suspects foul play. She says her daughter was robbed and beaten a month before her disappearance. Wanda says the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is waiting on DNA results and phone records before picking up a suspect, who she thinks might be involved in her disappearance.
When Nicky was reported missing, police say they went to a home on Rushing Street where she lived a month before her disappearance, but there was an eviction two weeks before she disappeared. Police say neighbors had not seen her recently.
A neighbor down the street, who wanted to be identified only as Miss. Davis, says she's concerned.
"Everybody is saying that she is deceased, but we don't know, and I am worried about her," said Davis. "She was a nice person, didn't bother nobody, not a fighting person, kind of kept to herself. She only had one friend, and the friend is worried about her too."
"I want to be hopeful that she will come home," said her mother. She is asking anyone with any information about her daughter to call JSO at 630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
