WASHINGTON - The Metropolitan Police Department (web | news) is asking for the public's help locating a missing woman authorities have identified as 47-year-old Pamela J. Butler.
Butler was last seen on Feb. 12 at approximately 9:48 p.m. in the 5800 block of 4th Street Northwest. She is described as a black female, 5'3" tall, and weighing 120 pounds. She reportedly has brown hair and brown eyes.
Butler is a program analyst with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and works in real estate. Her family says they are gravely concerned because she hasn't been seen in days.
"She means the world to me," said Bonnise Butler, Pamela Butler's sister. "Like I said, she would do everything for me..."
Detectives combed through Butler's home on 4th Street Wednesday night where her security system provided some critical clues.
The family says the last time Butler was seen on camera was last Thursday night around 9:45 p.m. when she was speaking to her boyfriend at her door. They say the tape never shows her leave the home.
Sources say Butler also spoke with her 76-year-old mother and said she was planning to take her out for Valentine's Day.
Family members who reviewed the surveillance tape say they watched the boyfriend come back to the house several times but they never saw Butler.
The next and final time anyone heard from Butler was on Friday when she reportedly sent out e-mails to both her boss and to a family member. She was supposed to attend a meeting with a supervisor but never showed up to work.
Now, Butler's family is praying for the best and hoping that Butler left on her own accord and is OK.
Anyone with information about Butler's disappearance is asked to call police at 202-727-9099.
