On Monday afternoon, Allison Cope with Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue in Raleigh, North Carolina, took a scheduled break from her job at a Starbucks at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport and she never returned. Now, friends, family, and local authorities are searching for the missing 24-year-old.
Cope’s car keys and debit card were missing from a bag which was found at the airport – but her phone was left behind. Cope’s car, a 2015 Ford Fusion with a North Carolina plate (EHA 2771), is also missing – the vehicle has a sticker for the Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue.
On Friday, ABC 11 News reported that the authorities have released surveillance video showing Cope at a Shell gas station located at 942 Durham Road, in Wake Forest at 4:15 p.m. Monday. Those who know Cope describe her as a “reliable” person and they are baffled by her unexplained disappearance.
In a release, Raleigh Durham police said:
“Airport police have thoroughly reviewed the video and there is no evidence that she is under any distress. Furthermore, RDU Police have uncovered no evidence of any crimes being committed at the airport or anywhere on the airport campus.”
