EL PASO, Texas — Authorities in Texas are looking for a 29-year-old mother who hasn’t been seen since going on a date last weekend.

El Paso police issued a missing person alert late Thursday, July 18 describing Erika Andrea Gaytan as “endangered.” Television station KFOX reported she made several Facebook posts from the July 13 concert in El Paso where she went on the date, and where she was last seen leaving late that night or early the next morning.

TV station KVIA reported the man she was on the date with told police she had called for an Uber.

Her family said it wasn’t like Gaytan to go off and leave her 7-year-old son behind.

Her son’s father said Gaytan is a really good mother, and would always have her phone on her.

Police released a photo of Gaytan wearing a white dress and smiling on the night she disappeared — and asked the public for information.
