LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas family members and police are looking for a woman who mysteriously disappeared six days ago. Friends say it is extremely out of character for 53-year-old Sharon Harrell to lose contact with everyone.
Harrell and her husband, Irving, own TC’s World Famous Rib Crib on Durango Drive near Twain Avenue. The family established the restaurant after leaving Louisiana, following Hurricane Katrina. Friends said she never missed a day of work.
According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Harrell was last seen Friday evening in the area of Durango Drive and Oakey Boulevard.
Friends and family say it’s odd for Harrell because she never misses work. 8 News NOW Reporter Sally Jaramillo spoke with Sharon’s husband, Irving about her disappearance. According to him, Sharon was dealing with depression ever since her restaurant received a bad grade with the Southern Nevada Health District, along with negative responses from people on social media.
Irving had the following message for his wife:
“No matter how bad it may seem, as long as we have each other we will be ok,” Irving said.
“As time goes on I think for us is just the urgency to get things done quickly because I think as time goes on the likelihood of being able to find Sharon safely decreases,” said Juan Young, cousin.
Young said he saw his cousin 3 weeks ago at a family reunion. He said she was talking about opening another restaurant.
Sharon’s husband said despite Sharon’s depression, they had big plans coming up in the next month. They were going to celebrate 15 year’s of T.C.’s Rib Crib in Las Vegas.
