JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating after a mother and a daughter were reported to be potentially missing on Thursday night.

A woman in the 1000 block of Meyer Drive called police saying she had just received a call from her sister, 38-year-old Bathsheba Nixon, on a restricted number. Nixon was whispering and told her sister she had been kidnapped, according to JSO Sgt. Sean Coarsey.

Nixon has called police before to report that she didn't feel safe and she and her daughter have not been seen since Sunday, when they found a safe place to hide out.

Coarsey described Nixon as African-American, 5-foot-5 and 220 lbs with short blonde hair. She has two silver teeth, two heart tattoos under one eye and two teardrop tattoos under the other eye. She was last seen wearing a white shirt and peach pants.

Nixon's daughter is 12 years old and was described as having short hair and weighing 100 lbs. She was last seen wearing tiger-striped pants and a black jacket.

Coarsey said JSO is treating this case as a missing persons/kidnapping case.
