Family Asks for Help to Find Missing Fort Lauderdale Woman

The family of a missing Fort Lauderdale woman held a news conference Thursday to ask the public for help in finding her.

Lisa "Noodles" Hayden-Gordon, 52, was last seen on January 24 in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Family members say she suffers from bipolar disorder.

"You see this on TV, this is a TV show, it's not real life and it is real life for us," sister Suzy O'Leary said. "Our sister is gone and we don't know what to do."

Police, along with family and friends, have canvassed the downtown area searching for Hayden-Gordon with no luck. Her family has also set up a website to help find her.

Hayden-Gordon has a thin build and stands 5-foot-6 and weighs 100 pounds. She was last seen wearing a short-sleeved orange shirt, blue jeans and sneakers with glitter.

Police said Hayden-Gordon is known to drive a blue 2003 Hyundai Elantra with Florida License Plate 303IEQ.

"She's a great person, she's my sister and I'm doing everything I can to find her everyday, every second, it's all I know to do," friend Teri Catlin said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Lauderdale Police at 954-764-HELP.
