(CBS) HOUSTON - Victoria Moon Erickson, a 31-year-old chef traveling the country blogging, vanished in Houston last week, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.
Erickson, an Atlanta, Ga. native, had been chronicling a cross-country road trip to vegan kitchens across the nation, as well as her quest to find her long-lost brother, CBS Atlanta reports.
Her blog posts stopped last week after she apparently disappeared.
Erickson was last seen Monday, Jan. 21 at Pat Greer's Kitchen, a vegan kitchen in Houston, Texas. This is where she had been working and staying, according to CBS Atlanta.
KHOU reports Erickson arrived in Houston on Jan. 16.
Erickson reportedly left her dog, car, computer, cell phone and ID at Greer's and has not been seen since, according to KHOU.
Rosa Fitch, Erickson's close friend, told CBS Atlanta she is concerned that Erickson abandoned her life.
"There's been a few instances in her life where she's left a lot of things behind and started fresh somewhere," Fitch said. "But I've never known her to leave everything."
According to CBS Atlanta, Fitch is concerned Erickson is in a bad state of mind and is worried for her safety.
