Missing Woman's Car Found; Family Fears She's in Danger | News
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Investigators have found the vehicle of a missing mother in St. Johns County.
Rebecca Ware's family hasn't seen her in almost a week and since she has been a victim of domestic violence in the past, they are worried.
"I just want my daughter home," said Gladys Varnadore, who hasn't heard from her daughter since Friday and said that's out of the ordinary.
"I feel like there's foul play here and I'm hurting down deep inside. I want her to come home."
Ware's 2005 sea-foam green Ford Focus with the broken driver's side tail light was found Thursday evening in the parking lot of the Wildwood Publix. It is being processed for evidence.
Family called police after learning Ware hadn't shown up for work two days in a row.
"That's one thing she did have stable, her job. That's when I knew something was wrong," said Ware's aunt Theresa Nolan. Ware was last seen leaving her job on Riviera Boulevard Friday afternoon.
Nolan said she went inside her niece's home on Phoenetia Drive in St. Augustine Shores and saw a smashed cell phone and noticed that Ware's purse was still there.
"It just scares me to death, really scares me to death," said Nolan. "We can't find her, just can't find her and we've looked."
The family said they hope Ware comes back safely. The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office has indicated there are no signs of foul play, though her disappearance is suspicious.
Ware is 35, 5'7 and 160 pounds. She has dark brown hair with blonde highlights. If you've seen her, the family asks that you call the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.
