HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- Glued to his phone and getting very little sleep, Jimmy Newsom grows more concerned by the minute about his oldest daughter.

I just sit and worry just sit and worry about her, said Newsom.

Melissa Sowders, 26, vanished on Thursday.

She's pregnant, said Jason Sanford, her boyfriend. We're supposed to be having a baby. She wanted to spend the rest of her life with me.

Sanford says Sowders was in their white Honda Accord with Texas plate # CL3H494 after he saw her at 6:15 Thursday morning.

She dropped me off at work and that was the last time I saw her, said Sanford.

Sowders' plan was to meet her ex-husband and their youngest daughter at the McDonald's on FM 1960 near Kuykendahl Road.

The father has custody of all their children.

No one is sure what happened after the visit at McDonald's but Sowders hasn't been seen since.

Newsom admits he is suspicious of her ex-husband because when they talked, he seemed more concerned about the attention from deputies than his ex-wife's well being.

Newsom also says not staying in touch was not his daughter's style.

It's not like her not to call us back or if we call her she always answers the phone or if not she'll call us later on, he said.

Deputies are asking for the public's help to find Sowders. They believe foul play might be involved in her disappearance.

If you can help find, contact the Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide Unit at (713) 967-5810 or Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.
