Jazmin Fernandez

July 17, 2018 By Tara Law

A 24-year-old Astoria woman has been missing since this Saturday, and her family has mounted a search to find her.

Jazmin Fernandez was last seen at her home at 35-06 34th St. on July 14 at around 6 a.m. Her family reported her missing to the police at around 8 p.m. Sunday.

Fernandez’s sister, Lisa Maria Fernandez, said that her sister struggles with depression and has been in and out of the hospital for the past few years— including two hospitalizations in the last year.

Lisa Maria said that her family was very worried about her sister, who typically lives with their mother. The family is particularly concerned that Jazmin is not taking her medications.

“I’m ok, but my mom is doing bad,” said Lisa Maria, who was audibly distraught. “We’re doing the best that we can.”

Fernandez’s family posted pictures of her on Facebook today to ask the public to help find her.

“A report has been filed and the family is actively looking for her,” wrote Deno Jay, who identified himself as Fernandez’s brother-in-law. “At the moment she might be feeling confused and lost.”

Police describe Fernandez as being 5 foot 5 inches tall and about 135 pounds. She has brown hair with red highlights and brown eyes. According to Jay’s Facebook post, she was last seen wearing black leggings and a gray jacket.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
