RDU police searching for Starbucks employee

Allison Cope, 24, was reported missing Monday night after she left Raleigh-Durham International Airport's Starbucks, where she works as a supervisor, for a scheduled break and did not come back, according to news station WRAL.

Allison Cope was reported missing on Monday after she clocked out for a break from her job at the Terminal 2 Starbucks. "She took her keys only, left her phone, left her purse, took her keys and I believe she was just running out to her vehicle, based on the conversation I was having with her", said Kosinski, but that is just a guess.

Sarah Kosinski - Cope's friend and roommate - says police told her surveillance cameras captured Cope going down the escalator and leaving Terminal 2. "Cope, who lives in Raleigh, is described as having blonde hair, blue eyes, standing at about 5' 6" tall, and weighing around 180 pounds.

Cope was wearing a black Starbucks polo shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers.

Her silver Ford Focus was not in the airport parking lot and her security badge was used to exit the parking lot around 3:10 pm.

Airport spokesman Andrew Sawyer says he couldn't comment on whether Cope drove away in her auto.

"Nothing adds up", said Justin Ferrell. "She's the most positive person I've ever met". They combed the parking lot where Cope parks for anything that may have been left behind. "They said to us that she went down through the bottom to where they normally take the trash, which is not a normal route for her, which is a little weird", said Kosinski. "Her manager expressed extreme concern".

Cope helps run the Change of Heart Pit Bull Rescue, which is based in Raleigh. Workers said they'd spoken with police and didn't remember seeing Cope.
