Tonee Turner missing

The worried family of Tonee Turner has been pounding the pavement daily since she went missing on December 30, 2019. The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, artist’s family has gone door-to-door, passing out flyers hoping someone will remember running into the missing 22-year-old.

The last place she was seen was Dobra Tea, a tea room in the city, but since then, her loved ones haven’t been able to contact her. According to NamUs, Tonee’s sister said she spoke to her around 6:00 p.m. the day she went missing. Tonee worked as a metal fabricator at Studebaker Metals, but she also was employed as a part-time ceramics teacher at the Braddock Carnegie Libray, which was just five miles away from Dobra Tea.
