Missing woman found amid disturbing Facebook activity


NEW YORK CITY (WPIX) – The disappearance of a New York City woman took another twist on Saturday, when her family said the NYPD informed them that Nairobiby Encarnacion had in fact been located at John F. Kennedy last Monday.

Encarnacion’s sister, Katie, quoted information she received from the Missing Persons Squad on Saturday: “On March 14 at 5:10 p.m. Nairobi was stopped by US Customs at the airport and told that she was under a missing persons investigation,” Katie Encarnacion said. “She told the detective she was fine,” the sister added. “She doesn’t even want to talk to us.”

The encounter with JFK sleuths came less than two hours after Nairobi Encarnacion’s Facebook profile picture was replaced with the image of Michael Myers’ character from the ‘Halloween’ film series. Its cover photo has also been changed to show a cemetery.

Over the past ten days, Encarnacion’s mother, daughter and sisters have become increasingly concerned about the disturbing messages they have been receiving on Facebook Messenger from his account.

A message sent via Facebook claimed that the family would “never find” Encarnacion, at least “until it becomes bones”.

The encrypted messages were sent before Nairobiby Encarnacion was questioned at JFK by a detective from the Missing Persons Squad.

The family believe she may have joined her boyfriend “on and off” in the Dominican Republic. He posted a photo six days ago on Facebook showing an assortment of tropical drinks.

The Encarnacion sisters have long feared her boyfriend was exploiting the 37-year-old, who had battled substance abuse issues in the past.

One of the sisters, Amaris Cummins, said things got hazy when Encarnacion and her boyfriend started “flip houses” in the Dominican Republic. Cummins said the boyfriend started sending nude videos of the woman to his family and they feared he was trying to traffic her.

Katie Encarnacion said she had no arguments with her sister and the family was together for the last time on Thanksgiving. “On December 12, I was actually with her,” Katie Encarnacion said. “We spent the day together.”

According to her family, the last time Nairobi Encarnacion appeared on Facebook was on December 18. A sister said the boyfriend posted a video to his Facebook story showing Encarnacion surrounded by birthday cakes and jewellery, as he sang Happy Birthday to her.

Nexstar’s WPIX contacted the NYPD Public Information Office about the situation, as the division released a missing persons photo last Saturday. Officials confirmed that they notified the family on March 19.
