Apryl Foster, 33, was last seen in Ybor City, where she met friends on Wednesday night. The last communication from her cell phone was at 2:19 a.m. Thursday morning, Police Chief Jane Castor said.
“It’s very suspicious,” Castor said about Foster’s disappearance.
Castor held a news conference Monday with Foster’s parents, who drove to Tampa from Texas to search for their daughter.
“I’ve never not talked to her for a day,” her mother Peggy Beman said.
Castor described Foster, who works at Tampa restaurant Ulele, as very reliable and in regular contact with her family. She was scheduled to work on Thursday.
“Her cats were her children, absolutely her children,” the distraught mother said. “There’s no way. I mean, you have to even feed them a particular way at a particular time. She was avid. Those were her children because she didn’t have any children.”
About 2 1?2 months ago, she said, her daughter was feeling overwhelmed and decided to take a break. She called her mother and told her she was going to a particular hotel in Orlando to clear her head and would be turning off her phone for awhile. She called all her friends and told them the same. She told her mother she would turn her phone back on in the afternoon and call her. “That’s how informative she was.”
Foster works as a server and trainer at Ulele restaurant and last worked there Wednesday night. She left work around 11 p.m. and went to a club in Ybor, the Bad Monkey, Castor said. At about 11:30 or 11:40 p.m., she went next door to the Double Decker, where she sang karaoke all night, leaving around 2:20 Thursday morning.
The last time Foster used her phone was around 2:19 from the Double Decker, where she made a call and a text. Castor said Foster had left her phone inside and called the phone looking for it. She went inside to retrieve it.
