A Florida woman is missing after leaving a bar last Thursday.

Apryl Foster, 33, a waitress from Brandon, Florida, disappeared early in the morning from Ybor City, Florida, after she met friends at the Bad Monkey bar after work on Wednesday night, according to WTSP.

At 12:06 a.m. on Thursday, she left with a man she met there. They went next door to the Double Decker to sing karaoke, the news outlet reports.

The two then left the bar together, returned shortly after, and at 2:19 a.m. Foster left, heading east by herself while the man walked in another direction.

Foster’s mother, Peggy Beman, reported her missing on Friday morning after she didn’t hear from her daughter on Thursday, Bay News 9 reports.

On Friday afternoon, a police officer crawled through a window of Foster’s home to check on her but didn’t find anything suspicious.

Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor described Foster as a “very reliable and very responsible person” at a news conference on Monday, according to CBS.

Her parents drove from Texas to help search for their daughter.

“I just kept thinking, ‘Okay, I’m going to hear from her, I’m going to hear from her,’ ” Beman told WTSP.

“She’s just a talented girl, very talented, and we miss her,” Beman’s husband, Craig, added of Foster, who has a YouTube channel showcasing her singing.

Police traced the route Foster would have driven home and are searching for her 2009 red Chevrolet Aveo hatchback with Florida tag K125YC.

They’re also searching parking lots and garages and reviewing video surveillance but so far they say “there is nothing to tell from that,” according to WTSP.

As family, friends and authorities search for Foster, the reward for help in finding her is up to $15,000.
