HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing woman out of Hollywood.

Noemi Bolivar, 21, left her home in Hollywood at around 4 p.m. Thursday to go for a walk.

“In my heart, I feel like she’s OK,” said her father Jose Bolivar, “but that doesn’t mean that she’s not in danger and I could be running out of time.”

The exhausted father pushes forward to search for his 21-year-old daughter, who has been missing since last Thursday.

“All those things that I tell you to be a strong woman. Please come back home. We need you here.”

Noemi Bolivar has been missing since last Thursday, when her family said she took a bus to Anne Kolb Nature Center to go for a walk.

They said she texted with friends once she got there.

“She sent pictures to her friends from the park, so we know she made it safely there,” said her mother Marycell Bolivar.

Then nothing. Police said her phone pinged a few hours later at a nearby Hollywood Beach, but there was no sign of her there either.

On Tuesday, Noemi’s friends were back at Anne Kolb. One of them even brought a drone.

They’ve been posting flyers and handing them out, hoping someone saw something last week and can help.

“We are trying to get as much information as we can. We’re out here. We’re searching for her. We love her so much,” said friend Leslie Miguel.

And they said they won’t stop searching anytime soon.

“We’re not giving up on you, Noemi. We know that you’re out there, we want you to be safe and we want to bring you home,” Leslie said.

Bolivar stands 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 126 pounds.

She has black hair and brown eyes.

The 21-year-old was last seen wearing a striped white and black shirt and jean shorts.

Anyone with information on Bolivar’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Hollywood Police Department at 954-764-4357. Her family and her church are planning to offer a reward.
