Baltimore, MD - More than two dozen city police cadets, half the city police homicide unit, and dozens of folks in the community canvassed the apartment complex and the nearby Reisterstown road plaza with flyers looking for any leads in this case.
They even brought in special FBI search helicopters to help in the search.
Police admit that they are stumped as there are few clues.
They have executed several search warrants, have interviewed dozens of people and even have what they call persons of interest but so far no solid leads.
Police say the one thing they are sure about is that this young woman would not go off on her own, in a city she did not know.
They don't know what happened to her but they're not ruling anything out.
"As far as foul play we can't rule that out and we're basing that purely on the circumstances we don't have anything else that there has been foul play involved but because it's been so long and so unusual half the homicide unit is assigned to this case and we're getting lots of help from the community." City police major Terrance McLarney told reporters at a news conference this afternoon.
Her father says he’s hoping for the best and wants people to call the police if they’ve seen anything.
"We have no idea sir we just prey that everything works out we have no ideas and we know that the Baltimore police department and everyone involved in this and doing the best that they can." Phylicia’s father Russell Barnes told reporters.
At this point authorities are looking for any tips in this case they've set up a special 24 hour tip line... 1-855-223-0033 for information about the Barnes case.
