Morilla, who is mentally impaired, is 5-foot-1, 98 pounds with black hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and white jacket imprinted with multi-colored flowers as she made her daily short walk from her West Miami doorstep to a Flagler Street bus stop.
Her mother, Geogina Morilla, said she said checks in with her daughter after she boards the bus. But she said that on Monday she noticed something odd – when her daughter picked up the phone, there was none of the usual bus noise.
Still, she thought Giselle Morilla would make it to her independent living courses in downtown Miami, she said. The 20-year-old relies on those courses to help her live with a mental impairment that makes it nearly impossible for her to speak.
The Morillas spent hours Monday searching for their daughter. They also kept dialing her cell phone. Although they got no answer, Giselle Morilla's teacher did, according to the woman's uncle, Juan Morilla.
"She was asking her about where was she, but she never, never answer her. She just hang up the phone, and that's it," he said.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call the Miami Police Department at 305-603-6310 or 305-603-6300.
