NBC Philadelphia reports Erica Crippen Crosby, 26, was last seen at a restaurant in Cherry Hill with her husband. She hasn’t been heard from since she posted a photo on Facebook just before 11 p.m. on Dec. 30.

“The shower curtain is missing, the sheets from the bed are missing,” said another cousin.

What’s even stranger, Kyle Crosby also disappeared — just days after his wife — following initial questioning by police regarding her whereabouts. He was finally found Monday night, according to NBC10 sources. Officials have not yet revealed why police were pursuing him.

Prior to Monday, Crosby’s phone was disconnected and he hadn’t shown up for work since he was first questioned, according to relatives who believe something is terribly wrong, especially given Crosby’s history of drug and assault charges. Source: NBC Philadelphia
