NEW YORK (AP) — The family of a 33-year-old New York City woman says she has disappeared while traveling alone in Turkey.

Local media report that Sarai Sierra of Staten Island, a mother of two who enjoys photography, was looking forward to her trip and arrived in Istanbul on Jan. 7. She was supposed to return to New York on Jan. 21.

Her husband, Steven, says she was not on her flight home and has not been heard from since.

Sierra's passport and medical cards were still in her room in Turkey. Her worried family is launching a search with authorities to find her. U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm of New York said Saturday his office is working with officials in the U.S. and Istanbul to locate Sierra and bring her home safely.
