FBI Joins the Search for Missing Restaurant Hostess in New York

The FBI is now aiding in the search for a 21-year-old restaurant hostess from upstate New York who went missing last month.

Several sources say a co-worker gave Noel Alkaramla a ride home the night of Nov. 22. The next day, several items from her purse were found on a nearby street.

Alkaramla's girlfriend said she was supposed to visit her stepdad, Johnny Oquendo, that night, but thinks she never made it.

Oquendo was jailed Friday after an alleged parole violation. But according to The Record, a police spokesperson wouldn't say if there was a link between his arrest and Alkaramla's disappearance.

The same day he was arrested, police started conducting dives in the Hudson River for evidence in Alkaramla's disappearance. But police wouldn't say exactly what they're searching for.

So far, no suspects have been named.
