BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — Residents in the neighborhood where the missing teacher and her family used to live, say her disappearance is unnerving.
You may recall, Sylviane Lozada, 51, was reported missing on July 18th. No one has heard from her since the beginning of this month.
"She would always walk her little girl all the time, and she would stop and talk to my daughter," says neighbor, Dwight Guillory. "She was just a very, very nice lady."
Guillory says he just keeps expecting to see Lozada and her family out and about in the neighborhood. "Every time I turn into the drive, I look down there and think about it," he says.
However, it's not the Lozadas that he sees when he looks down the street. "I've seen at least a hundred police out here from crime units to private eyes to everybody over here at this house. I gues they're just doing their job."
"It's kind of weird that it happened right there, that it happened at all," another neighbor adds.
Many of the peopele we talked to say they're concerned, but that couldn't say much else. They told us they've been instructed not to talk about any of the details surrounding the investigation. So, the people in her neighborhood wait, hoping the Lozada family will be home soon.
"She was a good neighbor," says Guillory. "We'll keeo our fingers crossed and our prayers for the family."
