Dana Bonanno, a Greenpoint resident who had been missing for several weeks has been located in "good condition" in a Queens hospital, the NYPD announced today. Bonanno, 33, was last seen on the evening of July 22nd, leaving her shared apartment at 100 Freeman Street. Officials are not disclosing any details about the case, but one friend said on Facebook that she had "been in the hospital this amount of time." Lohud.com reports:
Bonanno had been laid off in April from her job as a paralegal at A&E Networks. She had more recently been pursuing a career in electronic music production, friends and family said.
In the days before she went missing, Bonanno had sent her mother disturbing messages including asking her to call 911 without reason. She had also called O’Connor before sending the text message saying she thought her two male roommates were looking through her computer and talking about her.
O’Connor had said previously that Bonanno had anxiety that may have worsened since she was laid off.
Hours before she disappeared, Bonanno, who is originally from the Putnam County town of Patterson, texted her mother to say, "I'm scared."
Missing posters were plastered throughout Brooklyn, and concerned friends and other New Yorkers had raised $10,000 for a reward for information regarding her whereabouts. A fundraiser scheduled for Tuesday night was abruptly cancelled. DNAinfo reports that Bonanno has returned home.
