Detroit woman missing in New York City

A Michigan woman attending medical school in New York City who suffers from an epileptic seizure disorder has been missing for several days.

The missing woman's parents are worried sick back home in Detroit.

"If she's not in the hospital someplace I'm very worried, I don't like to think about that," said Al Angle, Aimee's father.

Aimee Angle-Zahn has been missing for several days.

The 34-year-old medical student had been living in Manhattan in a high-rise apartment building.

Angle-Zahn was subletting an apartment from a man in the building on the 20th floor.

According to her family, red flags went up when the man called last week asking for money.

Apparently, Aimee had stopped paying her rent over a dispute.

"It's this guy telling us he wants $650 for her rent and he kicked her out," said Debbie Angle, Aimee's mother.

Then there were emails.

"I got an email that said 'he threw me out and hit me with a broom and he took my phone'," Angle said.

Another email from Aimee arrived saying that she was looking for a place to stay.

Her parents then booked her a hotel room in Queens near LaGuardia Airport and bought her a plane ticket home to Detroit.

She never checked into the hotel nor did she check in at the airport.

"I'm hoping she was so stressed out and had a seizure," Angle said.
