Sheena West Missing News
For days, however, Sheena West’s frantic friends had no idea of her fate, and circulated pleas on social media asking for assistance in locating her. Co-workers at the Center For Animal Healing in Virginia Beach say they were out with West at the Central Shore tapas bar when she strayed from the group and disappeared.
Friend Leigh Ann Dowdy Conner wrote on Facebook that West had left her phone and purse behind at the tapas bar — something completely out of character for the young mother.
Surveillance images from the bar appear to show West leaving with an unknown man.
“Sheena would never leave with a stranger. She loves her people and she loves her job. She would never willingly disappear,” Conner wrote in the emotional post.
