MIYA Marcano made headlines after she was reported missing from Orange County, Florida.
Deputies say she was last seen around 5pm EST on Friday, September 24, 2021.
Who is Miya Marcano and when did she go missing?
Born March 26, 2002, Marcano is a 19 year old girl from Orange County, Florida.
She was reported missing on September 24 and was last seen at the the Arden Villas apartment complex near University Boulevard and Rouse Road.
According to the Arden Villas apartments' social media pages, Marcano currently works in the complex's leasing department.
Her missing person's flyer describers her as a Black woman with brown hair and green eyes.
She is reportedly 5' 0" and weighs around 130lbs.
According to the Arden Villas' social media post, she was " last seen wearing the red shirt (seen on the second slide) as well as jeans and a black hoodie."
On the day she was reported missing, Marcano was scheduled to take a flight to Fort Lauderdale later in the evening to visit her family but never boarded the plane.
Those with information are urged to call the Orange County Sheriff's Officer at 407-836-HELP (4357).
Where have authorities searched for Miya?
On Sunday September 26, WFTV9 reported that deputies started searching for Marcano in the wooded area behind the apartment complex.
The media outlet contacted her parents but were told that authorities have advised them not to speak about her disappearance since this is an ongoing investigation.
However, her father, Marlon, did reveal on social media that"there were signs of struggle in her apartment — and she may be in danger.”
At this time, it is still unknown if this is a criminal investigation or a missing persons case.
What have people said about Miya's disappearance?
On September 25, Asia Owens, a resident at the apartment complex, revealed to NBC affiliate WESH that there have been multiple concerns about the safety of the complex.
"A big issue that people who recently moved in have had is that the gate that we have is not always closed and people would like it to always be closed," she told the media outlet. "I think especially after this, I would agree with them on that."
Others have since taken to Twitter to try and find her as quickly as possible.
A user who goes by the name Jasmine, tweeted her photo along with the caption "PLEASE help us find my friend," while another user added, "My heart hurts #FindMiyaMarcano#MiyaMarcano you have an army behind you ! I hope you’re fighting and staying strong just like we are trying to bring you home sweet face, we LOVE YOU!"
Other have since called for the same media attention that Gabby Petito received after being reported missing on September 11, 2021.
One user said: "Praying #MiyaMarcano is found safe. She needs to be a subject of podcasts, tv specials, and ALL THAT until she’s found. Keep the same energy y’all did with #GabbyPetito and make this young woman trend until she is FOUND. If you saw something, say something!!"
Another added: "Sure hope the national media devotes as much attention and non-stop coverage to finding this other missing Florida woman, as they did to #GabbyPetito."
