Details of Disappearance

Sweeney was last seen by her family in Ocean City, Maryland sometime during June 2012. She left the area after learning she was wanted by the police. Sweeney's family never heard from her again.

On July 8 of that year, she was arrested in Frederick County, Maryland and charged with theft of a motor vehicle, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, theft of less than $1,000 and theft of less than $10,000. She and a male companion had allegedly stolen a van.

Sweeney posted $10,000 bond and was released the same day; this is the last sign of her. When she failed to appear in court, a warrant was issued for her arrest on October 17. Her family reported her missing in May 2014, almost two years after they last saw her, stating it was uncharacteristic of her to be out of touch with them for this long and they were concerned.

Authorities believe Sweeney may have traveled to Georgia or Florida after her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
