Details of Disappearance

Boomer attended a barbecue at Prospect Park in the New York City borough of Brooklyn with a friend on August 15, 2015. Afterwards, they went to her friend's home in the Red Hook housing projects in the 400 block of Columbia Street.

Boomer wanted to go to another barbecue, but her friend wanted to stay home, so Boomer left alone at 11:00 p.m. She never arrived at the barbecue. She did call her sister at 3:00 a.m. on August 16, but her sister was asleep and didn't pick up the phone, and Boomer didn't leave a message. She has never been heard from again.

Her mother, whom she lived with in the Sheepshead Bay area, was initially unconcerned because she'd stayed out all night before. After Boomer didn't come home two nights in a row and didn't get in touch with her sister for her sister's August 18 birthday, her family became concerned and reported her missing.

At the time of her disappearance, Aliyah was studying nursing at college. Her family doesn't believe she would have left without warning. Her case remains unsolved.
