TiJae Baker, 23, has not been seen since May 1, 2022, when she took a train from New York City to Washington, D.C. Her mother, Toquanna Baker, is on a mission to find her daughter. She told ABC News that the 23-year-old went missing after going to Washington, D.C. to design posters for a woman that she met online. Her mother thinks that she may have been “dragged into a human trafficking scheme”.

Toquanna Baker says that Tijae went silent after she boarded the bus to Washington, D.C., and her phone stopped ringing.

"For somebody to lure my daughter into another state. I have to deal with this, and this is going to affect my daughter's life forever," Toquanna Baker told CBS2.

NBC New York reported that New York police consider TiJae Baker’s disappearance to be troubling. She was last seen leaving her home in Brooklyn, New York around 3:30 p.m. on May 1, according to the New York Police Department. Washington, D.C. police are also aware of the case and are circulating flyers locally to try to find TiJae.

"My baby is out there, and traumatized and scared," Toquanna Baker said.

TiJae Baker is an artist, and is in her final year of studies at a university. CBS2 reported that she is an art major in college and that she displays her art on her Instagram page. Her mother explained to CBS2, "She just did a pop-up shop, an art pop-up shop. She's very humble. She's the sweetest person."

Baker was last seen wearing a white top, a black sweater, and gray shorts, according to NBC New York. She has brown eyes and black hair, and she is approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs around 130 pounds.

If you have any information about Baker’s disappearance, please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
