DEARBORN, Mich. (WJBK) -- 23-year-old Dynasty Myles left her six-year-old daughter with her father and stepmother at their Southfield home New Year's Day.  She called around 9:00 p.m. that night to say she would stop by in the morning to drop off some clothes for her daughter.  Myles hasn't been seen or heard from since.

"We didn't think anything of it at first because she's young and we just thought she was just out, and then the second night, that's when it was like something's wrong.  There's no contact.  She hasn't called," said stepmother Tara Paymon.

Adding to the mystery, her sister told Fox 2 that Myles called her the night she disappeared hoping to meet up with her at her workplace, Benihana, a Japanese restaurant located in Dearborn's Fairlane Town Center.

Myles ordered take out, but her sister says she never picked it up.  After the family filed a missing persons report, police discovered Myles' car in the restaurant parking lot, but the 23-year-old was nowhere to be found.

"Her car was left at the Fairlane center, which is odd because she always had her car," Paymond said.

"It's hard for everybody because this is not her.  This is very, very unusual for her to be gone this long and not call and check up on her daughter or just call her father or stepmother.  They talk constantly," said cousin Victor Dorris.

The family continues to call her cell phone, but it hasn't been ringing through.

If you know anything about Dynasty Myles' whereabouts, call Dearborn Police.
