“It’s been four days but it already feels like it’s been longer than that,” brother Rudy Peralta told WFAA. “I want to know where my sister’s at.”
Peralta told the station he last spoke to his sister a week before she went missing. When she didn’t pick up her 6-year-old son, he immediately became worried.
“I just knew that wasn’t her,” he said. “She loves her baby, her kid was her world.”
On Friday, Mesquite police released security footage from the apartment complex’s parking garage where Prisma’s Jeep Wrangler was discovered. It showed the woman on her phone outside an elevator.
The footage is the last known images of Prisma. Police reached the person Prisma was on the phone with and interviewed that person.
“I saw that video and it makes me break down,” Peralta told the station. “Knowing that’s the last thing I could see from her.”
Prisma is a paralegal originally from Mexico. She recently became a U.S. citizen, her stepfather, Dan Fuchs, told local station WTNH. Her son is being cared for by family until she is found.
Fuchs told WFAA after watching the footage of his stepdaughter, he believes something was wrong. Although it may appear as if everything is normal, Fuchs says Prisma appeared upset.
“The way she was floundering her arm, her lanyard, her keys. It’s just a trait that she has,” he told WFAA.
Prisma celebrated her 26th birthday on March 20.
