WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - For the first time, we're hearing from the father and boyfriend of missing Wilmington mom Ebonee Spears who disappeared Jan.15.
"I just seen her that morning and then she disappeared," says Antonio McKoy, Spears's boyfriend. "It just doesn't add up."
McKoy says he's barely slept since Spears vanished six weeks ago. Mckoy says he drove to Ebonee's apartment about an hour after police say she was last seen there. Her car was in the driveway, her purse inside, but no Ebonee.
"I was wondering like she doesn't go nowhere without that purse," he says. "I looked in it, the license I remember being there there was cards in it, bank cards."
Three hours earlier, around 8 p.m., Ebonee was at Wilmington Police Headquarters less than half a mile from her home. Police say she asked to make a phone call, but when the phone didn't work, she acted frustrated and walked out.
Ebonee's father, Alfonso Rivers, however, says the five-minute long surveillance video he saw tells a different story.
"From what I've seen on that film over and over again she was asking for help and they turned their back on my daughter," Rivers says. "I couldn't hear the audio but I could see my daughter, I know my daughter. I know she was asking for help, I know she was."
In a 911 dispatch call, a police officer says, "Her father just came in to the front desk and said that she was having a breakdown and said that she just needs to be admitted."
Rivers says Ebonee was on an anti-depressant for Lupus and had been acting strange in the days leading up to that night.
"She was confused, she was saying people were stealing things from her, following her around," he says.
