It has been a full week since friends and family of a Gwinnett County mother have seen their loved one.

Ceaulovone Milner, 45, disappeared last Monday after spending a day with her long-time friend, Deandra Murray.

Murray said they spent the day shopping and, around 9 p.m. Monday night, Milner left to head home to the Indian Trail Apartments in Norcross.

"She gave me a hug. She gave me a kiss. She said, 'I love you, friend. Thank you for the girls' day,'" Murray recounted.

But Murray never heard back from her friend. So, a couple of days later, she and one of Milner's adult daughters checked out her apartment.

"Her car was there. But her keys were gone and her phone was going straight to voicemail," Murray said. "I knew something wasn't right."

Gwinnett County Police said, as with any missing persons case, they are looking into possibilities of foul play.

Murray remains hopeful but insisted she is growing more fearful with each passing day. She said Milner has a medical condition but no mental issues. She would never just disappear. Murray said she printed 2,000 missing persons flyers to post and hand out throughout the area.

"She was a good friend to me. She would do anything for me," Murray said. "That's why I am here just begging anyone who has seen anything or knows anything to please get in touch with the Gwinnett County Police Department."
