Danielle Naegle-Kaimoana, Naegle’s sister, tells PEOPLE her sister texted her husband at 2:45 a.m. saying she was getting food and was on her way home. But she never made it back.

The following day, Naegle didn’t show up to work at West Los Angeles Community College, where she teaches, Naegle-Kaimoana says.

“She’s wild, she’s fun, she’s an outgoing life-of-the-party-girl for sure, but she always comes home and never misses work,” Naegle-Kaimoana tells PEOPLE.

“Not knowing is the worst,” she continues. “The unknown is worse than everything else.”

An LAPD spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE that a person is being questioned but the spokesperson would not release the person’s name.

According to her sister, Naegle had been preparing to start a family with her husband using in vitro fertilization. The couple have been been married since 2011.

“We’re heartbroken,” Naegle-Kaimoana tells PEOPLE. “This is not supposed to happen. You hear of missing people all the time but that is not supposed to happen to your family.”

Naegle-Kaimoana says she and her family were preparing to celebrate Christmas together.

“We’re not going to have Christmas without my sister,” she says. “If you know something or see something or feel something, let us know. We just want our sister home. Please help bring her home.”
