The last time anyone saw Bree'Anna Guzman she was stepping out to pick up some cough drops at a drug store on December 26.Nearly a month later, there's been no trace of the 22-year-old mother of the two from Lincoln Heights. She never came home and she never reported to work. This Tuesday her family held a vigil for Guzman, according to The Eastsider LA.

Last month Guzman's family and friends said that they didn't think it would be like her to run away from home, and so they're afraid that someone might have abducted her. Police are asking for any tips or clues that might help them find out what happened to her.

Here is their description of the circumstances surrounding her mysterious disappearance:

Breeanna Guzman was last seen on December 26, 2011, at approximately 7:30 pm, at her residence in the 2300 block of Humboldt Street, in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. After leaving her residence, she never returned home and has not been seen or heard from since. She was last seen wearing a blue jacket, a pink shirt, and blue jeans. She has a tattoo on the back of her neck, a pierced bottom lip, and braces on her teeth. She also goes by the nickname of “Bree.”
