SALISBURY, N.C. – The search continues for a pregnant North Carolina woman who vanished the morning she was supposed to deliver her baby.

Salisbury police told WBTV on Sunday that there were no updates in the search for 49-year-old Carrie Bradshaw-Crowther, who disappeared last week.

The woman was said to have vanished from her Salisbury home at 5 a.m. Tuesday, about an hour before a scheduled caesarean section. She’s nine months pregnant.

The missing woman’s 26-year-old daughter, Lauren Lusk, said she spent the weekend with her mother in preparation for the baby.

Lusk said her mother told her to go fill her car with gas before they left. The daughter said when she returned, her mother was gone, the house lights were off and the door was locked.

Bradshaw-Crowther’s car, her wallet and cellphone were also gone, but her purse and makeup were still there, according to reports.

NBC News reported that Bradshaw-Crowther has a medical condition and the pregnancy was said to be high-risk.

“I want to tell her to come home, we love you and we miss you, and we need you,” Lusk said, according to WBTV. “She’s a very likeable person, she’s friendly to everyone, she’s really hard not to like, very personable, easy to talk to, just, everybody loves her.”

The mother was said to have been spotted at a gas station in Statesville on Wednesday. Police are also investigating a report that she was seen at a Statesville hotel.

There have been no reports of her since then. The child’s father also said he hasn’t heard from her.
