LAKEWOOD, Ohio — The sister of a Cleveland woman missing since February 1 is hoping someone saw or knows something that will bring Alaina Camacho's family answers.

Camacho's sister said she texted her roommate on Cleveland's east side around midnight February 1 and said she was heading home, but she never made it.

Instead, Sara Camacho said video showed her sister picking up a friend, Nathan Orona, from the Sheffield Estates Apartments near Lorain around 1:40 a.m.

Family members said it was the last anyone saw or heard from the pair.

"When I bring in the factors that her phone's off, and she didn't take any clothes with her and she has no money that we know of, I get worried," said Camacho. "I start to think something's wrong."

Camacho said she normally talks to her sister at least once a week and the two sisters text even more frequently.

Police said Alaina Camacho's phone shut off early the morning she was last seen.

Her sister called that a red flag.

"She is on her phone all the time," said Sara Camacho. "She's 18, she talks to a lot of people, she uses Snapchat, she uses Instagram, Facebook. She's never not on her phone longer than her going to sleep at night."

Police said there's also no sign of Alaina Camacho's 2004 Gold Honda Accord with the license plate GTD 9555. It's also missing its front bumper.

"One second I'm ready to burst into tears," said Sara Camacho. "The next second, I'm like 'it's fine, they're alright, don't worry about it too much, we'll find them."

Camacho said her sister has never left without telling someone before.

She's hopeful someone has seen or heard from the pair and helps solve this mystery.

"I just am wishing all the time that I could hear from her, or hear her voice to make sure she's okay," said Camacho.

Camacho's family and the national organization Texas EquuSearch are planning to search for any signs of Camacho and Orona Friday morning near the apartments the pair was seen leaving.

Police said Alaina Camacho has a small tattoo of the letter "M" with a crown on her neck behind her ear.

She was last seen wearing black leggings, a black sweatshirt, gray boots, and a red baseball cap.

Anyone with information, in this case, is asked to call 911.
