Sister of missing South Windsor woman speaks out, pleads for her return as search continues

Jessica Edwards was last seen on the morning of May 10. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is urged to contact South Windsor PD at 860-644-2551.

SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. — A missing woman's sister is pleading for her safe return home, as the search for her continues in several Connecticut towns.

"If you see something, say something... if Jessica you're watching, come home. Because this is no fun and we need you. We need her home," Yanique Edwards said Friday.

According to Yanique, it is very unlike her sister Jessica Edwards to leave her baby and family.

Jessica, 30, has been missing since the morning of May 10.

Police said she was seen on Mother's Day by her sister and mother and the following morning by her husband. 

Police say Jessica  Edwards called out of her clinical training at Hartford Hospital on Monday. Police added her phone is off and her car was found at her home. 

She is approximately 5'3' and 150 pounds.

"Whatever anyone can do to help me... just come help me find my sister," Yanique Edwards said.

South Windsor police said they have consulted local, state, and federal for help in their search. 

On Friday, family and friends of Edwards gathered in front of the Riverfront Boathouse in Hartford.

Yanique told FOX61 that Hartford is just starting point and they will expand to surrounding towns, including East Hartford, Manchester and South Windsor.

"We just have people coming out -- all her friends, all her family, people I don't even know -- are just showing up trying to whatever they can to help her come home because Jessica would do the same if it was one of their family members," she added.

Police will not be involved in Friday's search saying there's no credible evidence that puts her in that location however they will remain investigating today.

Her family says she is a mom to a 7-month-old son, and it is unlike her to leave without telling anyone.

"You never really see her without her baby, so I guess that's going to be the biggest change," Yanique said.

On Thursday, the family searched in the area near the Cinnamon Springs condo complex where Jessica lives, and put up missing person posters. They are asking for anyone with information to come forward.

Anyone who has seen Jessica or with any information regarding her whereabouts is urged to contact South Windsor PD at 860-644-2551.

Online tips can be submitted to the South Windsor police's website or by calling 860-648-6226. 

The Edwards family is planning a search Friday morning beginning at 10 a-m at the riverfront boathouse in Hartford.
