UPDATE: Shereeta Manton was found safe Monday in downtown Cincinnati.
Police are searching for a missing Hamilton woman. Shereeta Manton, 24, was last seen in the parking lot of Tri-County Mall, police say she left her home on Monday morning and took a taxi to the mall.

"She got out of the cab and got into another car with an unknown male black subject, and hasn't been seen since," said Det. Jim Calhoun of the Hamilton Police Department.

Manton called her grandmother to inform her that the car she was in was having mechanical problems a day later. She stated that she would call back in 10 minutes, but her grandmother never received a return call.

"Last night it actually hit me, and then I started getting actually worried and upset," said Dara Manton, the woman's grandmother.

"So, we're very concerned about her well-being," said Tanya Walton, Shereeta's Aunt.

Manton  is 5'7" and weighs 140 pounds. She has black hair that she wears in a pony tail, family members are mainly concerned because the woman has developmental disabilities, and they fear she may have fallen victim to the wrong person.

"She'll get in a car with almost anybody, and that's what worries me," Manton said.

"Shereeta if you're out there and you're seeing this, we love you and we want you to contact the family," Walton said.

Anyone with information on Manton's disappearance should call Hamilton Police at 513-868-5811.
