BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — UPDATE: Shoundricka Parker was found Friday night, five days after going missing. She's currently at a local hospital getting checked out. Shoundricka's mother, Tasha, wants to thank everyone for their help in locating her daughter.
It's a parent's nightmare when a child goes missing, but that's the reality for one local mom who hasn't heard from her daughter since Easter Sunday. She said she's tried everything, and now she needs your help.
Call after call, and no answer. That's becoming a norm for Tasha Parker.
"When her phone kept going straight to voicemail for several hours, I called the police," Tasha said.
Tasha's daughter Shoundricka has been missing for nearly a week. For Tasha, that's a week too long.
"All I can say, this is the worst Easter I've ever had, the worst day of my life," Tasha said.
Tasha said she dropped Shoundricka off at her grandma's house last week and from there, a friend picked her up. She hasn't been seen since.
"Later that afternoon, I'm asking her where is my daughter, and she's like 'Why are you calling my cell phone with all this bull crap? I don't know where she is,'" Tasha explained.
Tasha said she's sure somebody knows something, but she's not just waiting for answers. She's done everything she can think of. She's called the police, the sheriff's office, and missing persons.
"I have never not been able to reach her, and after Sunday, it's like her cell phone went dead," Tasha said. "Pin number to her card. I can't even track that. There's no way for me to get any type of information on her anymore right now."
All Tasha knows is the last person Shoundricka texted was her best friend.
"That text was she needs help," Tasha said.
Now, Tasha needs your help.
"I mean, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy," Tasha said. "At this point, there's nothing really I can say, but I just want my baby."
