Carmilla Robinson dropped off her 19-year-old daughter, Taylor, at a home on Akron’s near south side on the evening of May 3. The aspiring nursing student was working there as an overnight health-care aide for a disabled person.

Summit County Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $2,000 reward for information in the case.   The number to call is 330-434-COPS.

That was the last time Carmilla saw her daughter. Police, the FBI, and relatives, friends and neighbors are searching; and her stepfather, Jeff Rucker, is going door-to-door handing out fliers.

Carmilla Robinson asked to speak to Akron City Council to thank everyone for helping; and to ask anyone who might have information about Taylor to come forward.

“Please, please share that information with the police. You can remain anonymous; just please share what you know.  She’s my baby and I miss her, and I just want her home; I just want to know she’s OK.”
