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. (Video via WNYT and WTEN)

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

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. (Video via WRGB)

So far, no suspects have been named.
