“I said, ‘I pray for you every day, but I pray now, too,’ and so I gave her a couple of hours. You know, just in case, you know, she was at the hospital and I texted back I was like, ‘Well, any news?’ And I haven’t heard from her since,” Fenderson said.

Fenderson said she has been caring for Bowden’s firstborn son, who is 5 years old, since she went missing.

“I’m just kind of worried. I know that she wouldn’t go this long without talking to me or her son, so I kind of worry that something’s wrong with or something has happened,” Fenderson said.
