Health Order Closures Of Bowling Alleys Force Costly Decisions To Compete Out Of State

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A young mother from upstate New York vanished in Queens after a night out with friends.

Her frantic family members have taken the search upon themselves, CBS2’s Christina Fan reported Tuesday.

Shareen King is so distressed over her niece’s disappearance, she said she can barely breathe.

For the last week, her family has flooded the streets of Astoria with missing person’s flyers, canvassed homes along 69th Street, and made repeated calls to police.

“They did a wellness check in Albany. She’s not in her house. This is the officer that went to her house yesterday. She’s not in her house. She is somewhere here. She is somewhere here,” King said.

Family members last saw 26-year-old Destini Smothers on Nov. 3. She lives in upstate New York, but drove to Queens to attend a funeral.

Last Tuesday, after celebrating her birthday at a Woodside bowling alley with friends, she left with her boyfriend.

He told the family the two started arguing in the car on the Grand Central Parkway in Astoria and she jumped out — something she has done before.

“They confirmed that she’ll just wait for him to come back. What would make this time different for her to just run away in an unfamiliar place? You know what I mean? In the middle of the night? It’s just unlike her,” cousin Cherese McCarthy said.
