    Authorities said Taquila Hayes worked as a nurse at Methodist North Hospital but hasn't been seen at work since May 21.

    Before Aug. 9, Hayes’ family had no idea none of her loved ones had heard from her in more than two months.

    The sheriff’s office also told FOX13 Hayes “left without the things a person would normally take with them.”

    Roberta Nutall said her daughter left behind her phone and car. Deputies said Hayes was last seen by her husband back in June.

    SCSO officials said they do not have any persons of interest yet because they are so early into the investigation.
