Police are hunting for a missing North Carolina woman after her phone was reportedly found at the side of the road behind a trash can on Monday afternoon.
Kristin Glass, 43, last spoke to her family earlier that morning, according to officers.
Topsail Beach Police Chief Samuel Gervase told The Port City Daily Glass may have thrown her cell from her car window because she was afraid someone was tracking her using the GPS.
Wilmington Police Department has not confirmed that theory, adding: ‘We stand by our statement that we will not comment on the investigative leads we’re following.’
Glass is said to drive a gold colored 2001 Mercedes Benz with the license plate CJB 9495. She was first reported missing Monday evening.
Surveillance footage taken 45 minutes before he phone was found by a local homeowner shows Glass alone ‘and not under duress’ inside a Wilmington bank at 3pm, according to Gervase.
Police spokesperson Jessica Williams said: ‘Detectives are taking this case very seriously and following various leads.’
Glass is described as blonde with green eyes and a petite build. She has a dragonfly tattoo on her left lower leg.
Her Facebook profile states Glass studied marketing and international business and trade at Florida Atlantic University and is now an account executive at Sage Island.
A missing persons poster showing Glass has been widely shared online.
Glass’ half-sister, Julie Coxe, wrote on Facebook: ‘My half sister Kristin Glass is missing and we are worried sick.’
Anyone with information regarding her disappearance is asked to call the Wilmington Police Department on (910)-343-3609.
