My daughter Brittany Hobart has been missing in Manhattan in New York City from her apartment since Tuesday. She is officially declared a missing persons and I need if any of her friends or family hears from her or has heard from her and would know where she is please contact me or her sisters! Any of my friends in the New York City area, and as many of my friends as can, please share this and get the word out there and maybe somebody will recognize her! Brittany does have some mental health issues, so if she happens to be located or seen and seems a little off, please do not approach her just follow her and call the police. My children and I and a few others will be going to NY to form a search party and look for her! please God be with us right now!

Brittany may be struggling as she could possibly be in need of her medication. Both the 13th precinct of the New York City Police Department and New York State Police are investigating her disappearance.
