More than two weeks after her family last heard from her, no trace has been found of a Maricopa woman.

Angela Russo, 24, hasn’t been seen since April 19. She texted her mother Diana Schalow to tell her she was going out to dinner and would be home the following evening. But she never returned to the Maricopa home.

Her mother reported her missing April 21 to the Maricopa Police Department. Both MPD and the Schalow family started searches and investigations, but all have met with dead ends.

MPD spokesman Ricardo Alvarado said the department has followed up on all leads but have “nothing new so far.”

Russo’s phone was reportedly last used in the area of 51st Avenue and Indian School Road. That phone is no longer working.

Russo’s car is also missing. It is a blue 2007 Honda Accord with Arizona plates BNL 1629.

Russo works as a medical assistant in Ahwatukee.

MPD issued a “be on the lookout” (BOLO) alert for Russo and her vehicle to agencies statewide.

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System’s Missing Persons Database, there are as many as 85,000 active missing person cases nationwide at any given time.

In Arizona, there are 1,130 current missing-person cases. Thirty percent (330) are females.
