• Leslie Ben-Iesau told her family she was going to meet someone she met online
  • The family members has not heard from her since then
  • Police do not suspect foul play

A California woman disappeared two weeks back and her devastated family said she went missing after meeting someone on a dating app. They are now seeking the public's help in tracking her.

Leslie Ben-Iesau, of Sacramento, told her family that she was getting ready to go out on a date with someone she met on the OkCupid dating app on April 15. However, the family did not hear from her after that. Police found that there has not been any activity on Leslie's phone since then. She was reportedly last seen in the area around the California State Capitol.

"She told me there was somebody on the way to come pick her up. And she would keep me informed. She would keep in touch and let me know. And that's the last I heard from her," said Caroline Ben-Iesau, Leslie's sister, reported NY Post.

Leslie reportedly suffers from mental health issues and her family is now worried about her safety. "Every day it feels like there's another moment that something could be happening to her. Our family is just breaking down. We can't eat. We can't — hard to sleep," said Khandaria Alexander, Leslie's other sister.

"If anybody uses this site, OkCupid, I would like them to reach out if they have any information on a person that goes by the name of Bea. That would really help my family out or to call the Sacramento Police Department," she added.

The police, however, do not suspect any foul play and said Leslie left on her own from her home.

The family is more worried after Leslie failed to respond to their text messages even on her birthday last weekend, which they find very unusual of her.

"When her birthday came, I sent her another message, and by midday, without her opening, turning her phone on or texting us, or anything, I knew that there was something wrong," Caroline said.

Leslie's family is warning others who use dating apps to always share their location with someone even if they are meeting in public places, KGET reported.
