Police believe they returned to their home near West William Cannon Drive and South First Street afterward, but they haven’t been seen since.

Friends started search online asking for public’s help

Broussard’s friends have been looking for her and sharing her photo since last night.

In addition to the details provided by police, her friends say online that when Broussard’s husband arrived home, her vehicle, purse and baby bag were all there but the door was wide open and she and the baby were missing. Police have not confirmed that.

Her friends say they have contacted all of her other friends but no one has seen or heard from her.
