Stephanie Ann Low, 22, has been missing since early Sunday, police say, and her family and friends have begun searching for her along the Wisconsin River.

Low's mother, Claudia Blake told police the disappearance was suspicious and that it was unusual for her to not contact anyone or leave without making sure someone was taking care of her dogs.

"We're very, very concerned. We miss you and I'm so so scared. She knows what that does to me if I don't talk to her or know she's okay. I go crazy," Blake said.

Low talked to a friend at 1 a.m. Sunday, but no one has heard from her since.

Low's brother Dan Blake says his girlfriend heard from his sister, when she frantically called, asking him to come over to her Thomas Street apartment.

He says when friends went to the apartment, Low was gone and so were some of her things.

"Sheets were missing off her bed and her blanket was missing and the slippers she always wears, always, there was only one in the apartment," Dan Blake said.

Police have not confirmed this, but have said the longer Stephanie is missing, the more suspcious they become.

Friends and family have taken matters into their own hands, beginning their own search.

At least 15 people began scouring the banks of the Wisconsin River Tuesday afternoon. Stephanie's father George Low says they'll look for clues until they find her.

"I hope for the best I really do. But circumstances being what they are I just have a bad feeling. I mean that's all I can really tell ya. I have a bad feeling and that's why we're out here walking," Low said.

She's described as a white woman, 5 feet 2 inches tall, 130 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
