A flight attendant who went missing on Thursday Jan. 14 after leaving LaGuardia Airport has still not been found.

Sierra Shields, 30, worked for an agency that provides flight attendants for Delta and United airlines. She was last seen at LGA, where she met with her supervisor and quit her job. She then left the airport on foot, around noon, and has not been seen since.

Shields called her parents before she quit, and her phone and wallet were still at her apartment — leading her family to believe that she was “suffering through something,” as her father told reporters. Some fear that she was suicidal.

To help with the search, friends and family put up posters over the weekend and started a Facebook page, saying:

“Please help find this beautiful young lady! She is a precious, bubbly, and happy person. She lives her life by God’s word and is such an amazing, helpful, and caring daughter, sister, and friend. All of us who know her, love her very much! If anyone has any information, please contact the number in the picture or this page. Please share and pray for her and her family! Thank you.”
