MISSING: Apryl Foster 33-year-old VEHICLE: 2009 Red Chevy Aveo, hatchback, tag K125YC, with a Huskers front plate.

LAST SEEN: 2:30 a.m. 2/12/2015 in Ybor City

DETAILS: Apryl Foster was last seen around 2:30 a.m. on Thursday in Ybor City. While there is no evidence of foul play, detectives are concerned about her safety. She is typically in contact with her family and they have not heard from her. She talks or texts with her mother every day and often more than once a day. She has not called her mother since Wednesday night and she hasn't called or texted anyone since she was last seen. She also wouldn't leave her cats this long without care. She is a trainer at Ulele and is known for her work ethic and has never missed work without calling. Apryl met friends at the Bad Monkey in Ybor City after work on Wednesday night. She left the bar at 12:06 a.m Thursday with a man that she met at the bar. They went next door to the Double Decker to sing Karaoke. The two left the bar together for a short time and then returned. When they left the bar the second time, Apryl headed east and the man walked west down 7th Avenue. On Thursday, Apryl's mother became concerned when she didn't hear from her daughter. She and her husband reported her missing on Friday morning. By Friday afternoon a Hillsborough County Deputy crawled through a window of her home in an attempt to conduct a welfare check. He didn't find anything suspicious at that time. By Saturday, HCSO had determined that Apryl was last seen in Ybor City and that's when the Tampa Police department began investigating her disappearance. Our detectives worked very quickly on Saturday night and early Sunday morning to identify everyone she was in contact with in the bar. They have conducted interviews with all of Apryl's friends, her family, her estranged husband, her employer, Apryl's boyfriend who she works with and the man she left the bar with early Thursday morning. Everyone has been cooperative with the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 1-800-873-TIPS or Tampa Police 813-231-6130.
