BROOKLYN — A model from Mexico never returned home after leaving a Bushwick loft early last Sunday, police said Saturday.
Geraldine Mendez-Victoria, 20, never returned to her Flatbush apartment after leaving 345 Eldert St. around 2 a.m. Oct. 16, police said.
Mendez-Victoria, who according to her Facebook page models with Paragon Model Management and hails from Mexico City, is about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds, has brown eyes and black hair, and was last seen wearing red multicolored pants with a black cardigan sweater, police said.
The woman's father flew to New York, and was working with the Mexican consulate to locate his missing daughter, according to a Facebook post by her mother Friday.
The mother, Julieta Victoria, asked friends and family to pray for her daughter's return.
The Mexican Consulate on Friday also asked for the public's help in finding Mendez-Victoria, tweeting out a photo of the woman on social media.
