Two missing women, Irma Mkrtchyan and Sheila Linke, have seemingly disappeared without a trace and police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
Irma Mkrtchyan, 45, a real estate agent, was last seen Jan. 19, in the area of Desert Inn Road and Durango Boulevard. Her car was located at a apartment complex close to where she lives with her ex-husband and son.
Text messages from her phone were sent to her ex-husband and her employer stating that the she was going out of town and would return on Friday. The message to her ex-husband said she was going away on business, and the text message received by her employer stated she would be away on a family emergency.
Her brother who lives in New York, Davit Mkrtchyan, flew in to Las Vegas to search for his sister and believes that she is dead and wants the investigation classified as a homicide.
Sheila Linke was last seen in the Northwestern part of the valley near Ann Road and Jones Boulevard. Police believe that Linke may be traveling on foot since her purse and key were reportedly found in her home.
Linke, 53, is divorced and does not have family in the area. She shared her home with two roommates.
Neither woman has a history of disappearing.
