38-year-old mother goes missing in North Carolina

Authorities are searching for a woman in Nash County, North Carolina, who has been missing since the weekend, according to CBS affiliate WNCN-TV. Sheriff's officials said Diana Alejandra Keel was last seen with her husband and has not reported to work the last few days.

"It is a missing persons case and we're treating it also as a crime scene. As you can see, we've got the crime scene," Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone told WNCN-TV. "This lady talks to her kid every day. She talks to other family members quite often ... and then all of a sudden this stops."

The sheriff's office posted on Facebook saying deputies responded to a call of a missing person report Saturday night and saw her car was still at the residence, some 47 miles northeast of Raleigh, North Carolina.
