'She told him that she was leaving and going home. He asked if he could walk her home and she said no she was fine. He stayed and she left.'
Over the next 35 minutes she sent increasingly erratic texts to her friends.
'One text message said, 'I'm lost in the area of 14th and Wertland' which is the area she was in,' said Pleasants. 'It's in an area she's very familiar with.'
Just after 1.30 her phone was either switched off or ran out of batteries and she has not been heard from since.
'We are checking her cell phone record, computer, bank accounts, everything we can possibly do,' said Pleasants.
