There are new developments in the search for a missing pregnant woman from our area who was due to give birth on Valentine's Day. And Houston police are asking for your help to figure out what happened to Tierra Adams. Adams, 25, disappeared late last month. She was reported missing on February 1 and police have not seen or heard from her since and they're concerned.

Police don't have any evidence to believe there was a crime committed, but they think she would have spoken to her family by now if she were ok. They have talked to her boyfriend, Nariah Roberts. Although they say after giving an initial statement in which he told them he dropped her off on the side of the road near Highway 249 and 290 after having an argument with her, that he has not been cooperative.

Her mother just hopes she sees her soon.

"I just want to know what happened to my daughter," said Rose Itive. "I know she's had problems in the past. But still, she wanted this baby. She's looking forward to having this baby. She came home and saw all the things the baby already had waiting on him, so this just doesn't sound like something Tierra would do."

Police don't think she's gone of her own free will. They've spoken again with Roberts. They say he's not a suspect or a person of interest in this case. But they're hoping he'll cooperate.

They're asking for anyone who may have seen her to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. There's a $5,000 reward.
