The 32-year-old mother of two has disappeared without a trace. Her mother, brother, sister and her two children have had zero contact with her family.

"For her not to come home day forty, it doesn't add up for us,” said Shannon Ivey, Crystal’s sister.

Crystal isn't listed by police as missing -- she's actually wanted by police.

On Nov. 20,  Crystalwas helping to close the Blackstone Food Lion down for the night shift.

"She's seen on video leaving with what we believe is the money and she comes back in a short time later, to finish up her shift and then she leaves for good,” said Blackstone Police Chief Nick Kuzmiak.

"I think something made her snap, something scared her,” Griffin said of her daughter. “I really don't think and I know you think the best of your children, but I don't think she had any intentions when she went to work that day, to do this.”

She said almost none of Crystal's belongings are missing from her home. However everything belonging to Redmond is gone.

"Yeah, that’s concerning me that only a few items that she decided to take with her, I thought she would have taken more,” Chief Kuzmiak said.

As for her family they have just one thought to share.

"Come home, we love you no matter what you've done,” her mother said.

Blackstone Police said Crystal faces an embezzlement charge.

Her boyfriend Redmond is not facing any charges by local police. But he is wanted by the U.S. Army, and they have him listed as a deserter, since 2013.
