A single mother of two from Kentucky who is a member of a group helping to find missing people is now the subject of a massive search after she disappeared from her neighborhood more than two weeks ago.
Andrea Knabel, 37, was last seen leaving her sister's home in the 400 block of Fincastle Road in Louisville at 1 p.m. on August 13.
Her sister, Erin Knabel, said that Andrea was upset and was seen talking on her cell phone as she walked to their mother's house, half a mile away near Audubon Park.

According to family members, Andrea has been struggling since she lost her job as an analyst at health insurer Humana and her car crashed into a fatal crash earlier this year.
Erin, however, emphasized that it is different from Andrea to take off without telling anyone. She did not say why the mother of two was upset on the morning of her disappearance.
"She is caring and considerate of others," said Erin Dateline from NBC. "She is a pleasure to be with and my life will not be the same until she returns."
Knabel & # 39; s last known contact was at 1.30 am on the day of her disappearance when she called a friend who asked for a ride. Since then, all calls to her telephone have gone directly to voicemail.
"I hope she didn't get on a busy main road … and made a ride with someone to go to someone else's house and never made it and got into the wrong car," her father said, Mike Knabel, CBS News.
The Louisville police launched an investigation into missing persons and went looking for Knabel
The police in Louisville have started an investigation into missing persons and have followed tips.
Since she lost her job, Knabel, who raises two sons, aged six and eight, has been a volunteer with the group Missing in America, which focuses on finding missing children and adults in the US.
The organization has joined the search for Knabel and has shared information about its case on its Facebook page.
Another page, Find Andrea, was made to post updates about the search and to raise awareness of the Knabel case.
Missing in America's founder, Nancy Schaefer, said Knabel helped find many people, and now volunteers from all over the country have come to Louisville to help find her.
Knabel is the first member of the group that has disappeared since its foundation.

Knabel is described as white with light brown hair. She is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. She was last seen in a light-colored tank top and white shorts.
