Bridgeport family asks for help to find missing woman

A Bridgeport family is pleading for help in finding their missing 26-year-old daughter.

Rachel Wood was last seen Saturday night. Police say she was working the overnight shift at a Laundromat on Fairfield Avenue. Her family says she just vanished.

The Laundromat managers say overnight protocol calls for locking the front doors and only allowing people with laundry into the establishment. They say when another worker came in Sunday morning, the doors were open.

Investigators working on the case say there was no sign of a struggle. They are concerned about the sudden nature of Wood?s disappearance.

Investigators were hoping surveillance video would help them find out exactly what happened to Wood before she disappeared, but managers say the cameras were not working that evening.

Bridgeport police are asking anyone with information about Wood?s whereabouts to contact them at 203-576-7624.
