Najah Ferrell vanished in Avon, Indiana on March 15th, 2019. The mother-of-two was reported missing after she failed to show up for employee orientation for her new job at Panera Bread. Over a week later, on March 26th, 2019, Najah's car was found abandoned in Indianapolis, near the Panera where she worked. Additionally, some of Najah's items were found strewn across the interstate. By that point, Najah's family members were certain something bad had happened to her. Najah's mother made a tearful plea for information on her daughter's disappearance during a March 28th press conference.
Ten days later, on April 8th, 2019, two fisherman called authorities after they reeled a severed foot onto the shore of Crown Point--a pond location over 100 miles away from the town where Najah was seen. In early May 2019, that severed foot was confirmed to belong to Najah Ferrell. Investigators have now shifted her disappearance into a death investigation until police receive more details.
Najah remains missing today and her family members are desperate for answers. Anyone with information that could lead to Najah's whereabouts is asked to contact authorities at 317-262-TIPS (8477).
