Family Desperate To Find Loved One After 1-Month Missing

Posted: Updated:
Dumont, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

It’s now been one-month since 18 year-old Mila Kostadinova disappeared from Dumont, New Jersey. Her Twitter page went silent June 2, 2014, but prior to that it painted a picture of a sad and angry young woman who wanted out of her family home and ultimately left.

Since then no one has seen or heard from Kostadinova. Her brother Sava spoke out about his missing sister and explained that before her disappearance she was having issues at home, but he said that he’s very close with her and it’s not like his little sister to just leave. He thinks something must have happened to her.

“I do not think, well from what I’ve seen and what I know, that she would just disappear and not tell anybody anything. That is not something that I think my sister would do,” he explained.

A lot of people originally speculated that this was just an 18 year-old that is technically an adult who left home. However, any speculation that Kostadinova left on her own seems to be removed because of the involvement of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Special Crimes Unit who is now leading the investigation.

While the unit remains mum on details, there is speculation of possible drug involvement either with people she may have known or interacted with. Law enforcement has indicated that something probably happened to her.

At this point, Sava said that the family is desperately looking for any indication that Mila is okay and they are hoping that they can get some indication that she is alive.

“If you’re out there, just please reach out to someone. Do it for mom and grandpa please do,” Sava said in a message to Mila.

At this time her mother is in Bulgaria where Kostadinova had a prior ticket to go and visit. The family originally hoped that she used that ticket, but after checking with the airline, that ticket was never used.

The family is asking anybody for help in finding their loved one and if you have any information as to Kostadinova’s whereabouts please call the Bergen County prosecutor’s office at 201-226-5532.
