Family: Missing Sabrina Vanner would 'give you the shirt off her back'

- As a mother and a grandmother, Sabrina Vanner is truly loved.

"My grandmother was fun, loving, confident person. I was the only grandchild for a long time so me and my grandma hung out a lot. She used to babysit me all the time when I was a kid," said Imani Vanner.

Her daughter, Kenneasha Williams, echoing that love.

"My mom is one of the most kind hearted people I know. She would give you the shirt off her back," she said.

Sabrina disappeared on May 5. She was last seen at her son's house in the 14000 block of Grandmont - a quiet street off of Grand River on Detroit's west side.

"You just wake up everyday and you just pray and hope that this nightmare is going to be over," Kenneasha said.

Her son, Kenneth Vanner, says it's been a tough time for everybody.

"This is nothing like her," he said.

The 59-year-old woman was living in Wayne at the time of her disappearance. Her family says she was last seen with an old childhood friend on that Saturday in May. They have so many questions and virtually no answers.

"I just want to say to anyone out there that may have seen her that day or that may know something or may think you know something but you're not really sure, please call the tip line ... We really just want to know," said her daughter, Rachel Williams.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $2,000 in reward money for tips in the case. Anyone who can help this family please call the anonymous tip line at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

"It's been terrible, it's been torture, it's been hard," Williams said.
