Gothamist heard about this missing young woman on the news last night, but this morning, a friend of her family asked Gothamist to post this:

Melissa Kennedy has been not heard from or seen since Friday night, when she was dropped off by a friend at at Metro-North Train Station in upstate New York, near Bard College. Her train would have gotten her into Grand Central Station at 10:18pm. Melissa was coming home to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, for the weekend and it is not known if she got on the train or ever made it into the city.
Anyone with any information please call 1-845-451-4000.

Her father, George Kennedy, tells NY1, "I traveled back to Poughkeepsie, traveling about trying to find Melissa. I then went through the Metro-North system, stopping at every station, physically searching those stations hoping to find my daughter.”
