KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Family and friends are worried about a young Missouri woman who has been missing for two days after texting that she had been pulled over, according to WDAF-TV.

Toni Anderson, 20, hasn't been seen since early Sunday morning, after she told co-workers she was headed to a gas station -- but she never made it there.

"She's a great person, really nice. We're all worried sick for her," said Pete Sanchez, Anderson's boyfriend.

Sanchez said Anderson works as a server at Chrome nightclub on Kansas City's east side.

On Sunday, she left work at 4:11 a.m. and was adamant about going to a gas station, according to WDAF. But 30 minutes later, Anderson's friend Roxanne Townsend told the station she received a frightening text from Toni.

"It was exactly 4:42 when she texted me and said, 'I just got pulled over again.' She said 'again' because she gets pulled over all the time," Townsend said.

Kansas City police say they have no record of any of their officers pulling over Anderson.

textSanchez said with each passing moment, his fears are growing. He adds they're trying to hire a private investigator to help look for her.

"Every time I leave the house, I hope the next face I see in public is going to be her," he said.

He was asleep at the time she was getting off work.

"It was just like any other night. I just thought she'd come home," he said. "I just want her to be safe. Her safety is my main concern right now."

Sanchez said he and Anderson have lived together in Kansas City for the past two years and that she has never disappeared before.

They moved to the area from Wichita, Kan. He said she loves to write reviews for local musical festivals.

Anderson has blonde hair, green eyes and a lean frame. She drives a 2014 black Ford Focus with Kansas plates 989-GAX.
