Missing 26-year-old found unconscious in car, father says

HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

The father of a missing 26-year-old woman says his daughter was found unconscious in her car Wednesday.

Kristen Woodrow, 26, was last seen Sunday afternoon in the Devonshire Road area of Birkdale.

Her parents, Susan and Scott Woodrow, last saw her Saturday afternoon when she left their house to dog sit for a family on vacation.

Woodrow said his daughter was apparently headed to the Biltmore Estate when something happened.

She has been taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Her mother said their last conversation was routine and raised no red flags.

"She was going out the door, 'I said oh did you remember to order your book for school'," Woodrow recalled. "She said, 'oh I'll take care of it.' She was all, 'see you when I get home'."

Describing the 26 year old as quiet and reserved, the Woodrows say their daughter wouldn't just leave without telling them.

"We're driving around, going to some place we think she would go and just driving around neighborhood trying to find the car," said Scott Woodrow.

Huntersville Police say her Jeep Cherokee and the dog she was sitting are missing.

The Woodrows are also starting to put up fliers.

Her parents said she'd recently moved back home from Florida to attend nursing school and didn't know the area very well.

"She doesn't know the area good enough to just not have her cell phone using GPS," he said.

He also told WBTV she left behind laptop and overnight bag, along with her cell phone.

WBTV has also learned it was the family she was dog sitting for that actually called police Sunday afternoon after they couldn't reach Kristen.

Her father had a message for his daughter and said, "Just come home. Find a police station, whatever you need to do to figure out how to get home."

As they wait for answers her mom wishes she'd hugged her daughter, "one last time," she whispered.
