A 24-year-old Uniondale woman with special medical needs who was reported missing on Thanksgiving has been found, Nassau County Police said in a news release Tuesday.

Alexandra Futterer left her home on St. Agnes Road around 9:30 a.m. Thursday, according to Futterer’s mother, Tara Munsch.

Munsch said Futterer is on medication to treat a disorder but stormed out of the house after refusing to take it that morning. She took with her identification, her vaccination card and $160 in cash but left her phone behind, Munsch said.

"I was in the kitchen," Munsch recalled. "The turkey was in the oven and I was about to do the sides, but then when I didn’t see her, we started driving around looking for her but we couldn’t find her. She never did anything like this."

Futterer is 5 feet tall, 125 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes. She is half Latina, according to Munsch. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a purple sweatshirt and a black jacket. She was also carrying a black backpack. Anyone with information is asked to please contact the Nassau County Police Department Missing Persons Squad at 516-573-7347 or call 911.

"I’m scared," Munsch added. "I don’t know where she is or who she’s with or if she’s even eating ... I want her to know we love her and we want her to come home now."
