The last time that Carmilla Robinson saw or heard from her daughter was Friday night.
She had dropped Taylor Robinson, 19, off at a home on Kipling Street, where her daughter was working as a home health aide. When the mother went to pick her up at 7 the next morning, the teen was missing. And the only things she left behind were her coat and shoes.
“I know she would never leave her client,” she said of her daughter. “She would never leave somebody she was responsible for. That’s not her.”
Akron police on Sunday put out a call to the public for any information about the missing teen as the investigation into her disappearance continues.
Taylor Robinson, who is also employed at BonWorth clothing store at Chapel Hill, failed to report to work Saturday afternoon. And though she is 19, her mother said she still has a curfew. And if she wasn’t able to make it home, she would always call.
Taylor Robinson is majoring in nursing at Kent State University’s Stark Campus, with plans to work in a neonatal unit.
“She’s a good girl,” her mother said. “I’m lost. Confused. I can’t grasp what’s going on. People are calling and asking questions, but I have more questions than I have answers.”
Akron detective Brian Harding said police have reviewed Taylor’s cellphone records, checked social media and distributed fliers.
“Every single person agrees it [Taylor missing] is not in her character,” Harding said.
“We are at a dead end,” he added, noting that Robinson has no history of trouble.
“We are asking for the public’s help,” he said. “Any information at this point, we will take.”
Robinson is a black female. She is 5-feet, 3-inches tall and weighs 150 pounds.
She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, gray leggings and a white-and-black bandana.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 330-375-2530.
