DELRAY BEACH - UPDATE: Nysi Martin has been found according to the sheriff's office.


A search party of volunteers is fanning out across South Florida to find a missing Boynton Beach woman.

The family of Annysia "Nysi" Martin says the 18-year-old disappeared Friday on her way to the Boynton Beach Mall.

She has cerebral palsy and uses a motorized wheelchair. That battery would surely be dead by now, said her mother. She also pointed out Nysi didn't take any hygiene products with her when she left.

"Somebody, tell me where she is. A child in a wheelchair does not disappear, and I don't know where she is, but somebody knows," said Nhekia Osborne, Nysi's mother.

The search party followed leads in Broward County this afternoon. It is hosting a prayer vigil at Osborne's home tonight.

If you see Nysi, call the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office at 561-688-3400.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 11:00 a.m. at Pompey Park in Delray Beach. And again at 6:00 p.m. at Ezell Hester Community Center in Boynton Beach.
