CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A mother is desperate for answers after her daughter suddenly went missing.

It's been a month since anyone has heard from Nickeisha Holloman.

Cincinnati police issued a Critical Missing Alert Monday for the 23-year-old woman last seen getting into an unknown vehicle in Avondale.

They said they are concerned about Holloman's welfare because she is missing "without life-saving medications."

But, at this point, police are not calling the case suspicious.

Her family, however, fears for the worst.

Holloman's mother said she knows in her gut, something is wrong.

Keiana Rogers has never gone this long without speaking to her daughter.

She disappeared without her diabetic medication and does not have a history of running away.

The day Holloman vanished, she went to get her hair done but never made it to her appointment, according to her mother.

"She just went to get her hair braided," Rogers said Tuesday. "So how do you go get your hair braided and you just don't come back?"

Holloman is an insulin -dependent diabetic who also battles mental health issues, according to her mother.

She was staying 45 days under a court order at The Crossroads Center on Burnet Avenue in Avondale for behavioral health after a run-in with police.

Holloman was last seen leaving the Crossroads Center with her boyfriend on July 1.

"I spoke to him and he said they had an argument and she left with someone else," Rogers recalled.

A few people at The Crossroads Center said Holloman talked about going to Florida.

But her mother doesn't buy that.

Her daughter would not just leave her family without saying a word, she insists.

Plus, her daughter gave her a new phone number to reach her when they last spoke.

"She called me and said here's my number, and now I don't know where she's at," Rogers said.

"What would be the purpose of giving me your number if you're going to run away? It don't make sense."

Her daughter's phone is now turned off.

Her social media accounts have not had any activity in the last month.

"Something happened to her," her mother said. "I know something happened to her."

Holloman was closest with her grandfather, who was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer and only has a few months left to live.

She was making plans to return home and help take care of him, her mother said.

"So, now, I'm losing my daddy and I've lost my child, technically, cause  if I don't know what am I to think? What would you think?" Her mother cried..

Now, she is hoping someone has seen her daughter and she makes it home soon.

"I just pray that she's safe. I'm just asking God to bring her back home safe and alive," Rogers tearfully said.

The family plans to put out new flyers they hope will bring in new tips.

Holloman is described as 5'3 and 143 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call Cincinnati Police Dispatch: 513-765-1212, or Crime Stoppers: 513-352-3040.
