TROY, N.Y. -- Troy Police said a missing person case in the city is suspicious. Family members said Grace Wieninger was headed to work at the SEFCU on Hoosick Street on Thursday, but never made it there.
She was last seen around 9:00 p.m. at Night Owl News bus stop. Her family said it is not like her to miss work, and that is one of the factors which leads police to believe that this is not a runaway case.
"She's never missed a day of work in four years, so this is so much out of character," said Michael VanDeusen, Grace's dad.
"It's been over 48 hours now, we are finding no indicators that this was a voluntary and willing disappearance on her part. You have to keep in mind that an adult does have the right to just disappear if they choose to do so, however, we often see factors that lead us to believe that that would be the case. In the case of Grace, nothing points to her just leaving on her own or doing this," explained Capt. John Cooney, Troy Police Department.
Grace's family spent Saturday handing out flyers with her picture on it. She is about 5'3, weighs 196 pounds, and has dark brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a dark blue polo shirt, blue jeans, and she was carrying a white sweater and a large pocketbook. Her family said she also has a two-inch scar on her right forearm.
