ORIGINAL: The Missouri State Highway Patrol is asking the public for help finding a St. Louis woman whose vehicle was found in Monroe County.

A state park ranger found 23-year-old Rafaella Maria Stroik’s unattended vehicle Monday in the Highway 107 boat ramp parking lot of Mark Twain Lake State Park, the patrol’s Troop B said in a news release. No missing person report had been filed and the vehicle was still there Tuesday, the release said.

Troopers and park rangers then determined Stroik was missing. A missing person report was then filed and authorities are searching the area around the boat ramp, the release said.

Stroik is about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs about 115 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She normally wears her hair in a ponytail or a braid. She was last seen at about 10:30 a.m. Monday at Whole Foods Market in Town and Country, Missouri, wearing a pink scarf, navy pants with white zippers on the sides, an olive-green jacket and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the patrol at 660-385-2132.
