Twenty-two-year-old Maria De Los Angeles-Ventura vanished sometime Friday night after leaving her child with a babysitter. She was last seen at around 11:00 p.m., but hasn't since been seen or heard from by friends or loved ones. Fliers with her photos and other details are currently being shared on social networks, but the media needs to get in gear on picking this story up. There's no telling what might have happened with this missing Nebraska woman.
If you've seen Maria De Los Angeles-Ventura, do not hesitate to contact authorities. The Grand Island woman hasn't been seen since Friday and left her child behind. There are very few reports with details on what happened, but it's reported that she was only supposed to be away from her child for about a half hour. Since then there have been several attempts at contacting her with no success.
It's not known if it's in her character to vanish like this without her child, but photos show her as a doting mother. Hopefully nothing bad happened with the missing 22-year-old and this just ends up being a misunderstanding. Otherwise, with each day that passes it's harder to have a positive outlook.
