A Brooklyn, N.Y., mother is desperate to locate her 23-year-old daughter, who has not returned from a May 1 trip she took to Washington, D.C.

TiJae Baker, an art major in college, travelled to D.C. by train after accepting a job making posters for a woman she had met online.

A rally was held Monday in New York City, calling attention to the case.

Toquanna Baker, TiJae’s mother, said she knows her daughter got off the train at D.C.’s Union Station, but that her phone was shut off shortly after she left Brooklyn.

Baker told WABC-TV in New York she has spent the last month searching the streets of Washington, D.C., for any sign of the rising artist, who is in her last year of college.

“After this rally, I’m going right back out there, because I’m going to find my daughter,” Baker said, adding she’s searched abandoned buildings in her continuing efforts to bring TiJae home.

Baker has had some luck with leads. For instance, she tracked down surveillance footage that shows TiJae in a Maryland nail salon last week.
