FBI, Raleigh Police helping in search of missing RDU worker

Police at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport are searching for an employee who never returned from a scheduled break Monday afternoon.

Allison Cope was reported missing on Monday after she clocked out for a break from her job at the Terminal 2 Starbucks.

"She went on break at work at the RDU airport where she is a supervisor and never returned", the post read.

She left her phone and bag behind, but her debit card was missing from her belongings. She said she thinks Cope went to the parking lot to get vehicle registration paperwork, because they had been discussing her insurance policy. "Cope, who lives in Raleigh, is described as having blonde hair, blue eyes, standing at about 5' 6" tall, and weighing around 180 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black Starbucks-branded polo shirt, black shoes and blue jeans, according to The News & Observer. Her silver Ford Focus was also gone from the airport parking lot. She said around 1:40 p.m. Monday, she texted Cope asking if she had left something inside of Cope's vehicle. "She's been there for me when no one else has been there for me". "She always tells us if she is going to be late".

The 24-year-old's roommate told reporters that security footage caught the Ford Fusion leaving the lot, but it is still unknown who was driving. "She would never clock out for a break and not continue to work her shift". "She doesn't think bad of people at all, she's really, like everybody is good, she always said she doesn't hate anybody". The auto has a sticker for the Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue.

Cope's roommates said there's a charge on her bank account after they reported her missing, from a gas station in Wake Forest.
