Erica Johnson: Missing Florida mom was ACTING STRANGE before last sighting, family claims
Johnson postponed plans to see her children and her ex- husband in June, which her family said was unusual
Family members of a Florida woman who has been missing for more than three weeks and was apparently acting strangely before she disappeared are asking the public's assistance in finding her. Erica Johnson, 36, was last seen on July 8 in Fort Myers, boarding a direct Greyhound bus to Tampa. Security cameras recorded her carrying a travel pillow, luggage, and a pet rabbit, according to the Cape Coral Police Department. The 36-year-old mother was last seen by Johnson's family in those pictures, according to them. After she failed to arrive for work at the Best Western Plus Beach Resort on Fort Myers Beach on July 14, her family filed a missing person report.
According to Fox News, authorities have stated that there is information indicating Johnson is a ‘missing and endangered adult’ and that some strange events started occurring weeks before she went missing. One cause for concern is that Johnson is said to have postponed plans to visit her ex-husband and their children in June. She reportedly told him that she needed to work, which he found to be ‘very unusual.’ According to DailyMail, Johnson was usually always excited to be with her kids. Johnson allegedly reported feeling unwell at work on July 5. At 4:30 pm, a coworker gave her a ride to a bus stop in South Fort Myers.
A witness claimed to have seen Johnson entering a commercial office building in Cape Coral, where she allegedly rented space, while carrying a black suitcase, according to detectives. Many of her possessions are still there in the unit, according to police who searched it. Additionally, Johnson allegedly colored her blonde hair brown and shortened it. Brandon Sancho of the Cape Coral Police Department told the Daily Mail that Johnson ‘lives a different lifestyle where she has no phone, no vehicle and no bank account.’ Johnson also has no social media, Sancho added. Meanwhile, Johnson's mother in a statement pleaded for anyone who knew her whereabouts to contact the police.
The statement says, “I would like to thank the people of Cape Coral & Fort Myers for their kindness and support in helping to locate Erica and the Cape Coral Police Department for their efforts over the past few weeks. Erica is loved and missed by her family and friends who are devastated by her disappearance. We remain hopeful that she will be found safe very soon. If you have seen her, or have any information on her whereabouts, please contact the Cape Coral Police Department.”
