Lourdres’ brother “Gene” and cousin Vanessaa Giambrone said, they’re worried to death noting she left home with nothing but her car keys.
“She doesn’t have her ID debit card or her cell phone,” they both said.
Township Police say they have an open and active investigation into the women’s disappearance.
“There is an active investigation” said Lt Sean Cosgrove Thursday. ‘
High School friends describe Lourdes as a loving mother and great friend.
“Always one to help” one friend said.
She’s a Kutztown University graduate with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice but not exactly street savvy family members said.
Lourdes moved back to Bristol just under a year ago, “Gene” said, and the transition has been challenging he said in terms of getting her medical needs addressed.
Since she’s been back in Bristol she hasn’t been able to access life sustaining medications that are needed, he said.
“In some ways I feel like I’m failing my baby sister. We just want her back home and soon”
Cousin Jonathan Smith is also worried, pleading if anyone sees Lourdes to please reach out to Police or family members.
“If anyone has seen her or knows where she is please please call the police or my aunt Maritza Marimar Crespo Ramirez via fb or 609-598-3833. You can also let me or anyone in our family know. She may be confused and not in her right state of mind!
