MISSING: Pregnant 21-year-old last seen with her boyfriend; his car later found ON FIRE​

Investigators in Pennsylvania are looking for a pregnant 21-year-old woman who disappeared this week after an argument with her boyfriend.

Dianna Brice was last seen on Tuesday at a laundry in Lansdowne with her boyfriend, 23-year-old Justin Smith.

Brice’s mother, Betty Cellini, told ABC6 that he called Smith, who admitted the two had an argument.

“He goes, ‘She don’t want to even talk to me,” Cellini told the station. “I said, ‘I don’t care; she’s pregnant with your child.'”

Cellini also said that Brice, who is 14 weeks pregnant, has a serious medical condition and hasn’t taken her daily medication since Tuesday.

Upper Darby Township police said they found Smith’s vehicle on fire in Philadelphia about two hours after they responded to the missing person report. Brice and her boyfriend were reportedly in the car when she was last seen.

“Investigators have looked through hours’ worth of video footage and neither Diana Brice or Justin Smith were seen in, near, or around the car at the time of the fire,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt said, according to CBS 3.

Cellini told the CBS station that she and Brice went to the Lansdowne laundry Tuesday morning and that her daughter was visibly upset.

“She was so upset. She just kept crying,” Betty Cellini said. “I asked her what was wrong. She said, ‘nothing, Mom.’”

Early in the afternoon, she said, Smith met up with Brice. Cellini said she finished her laundry and headed home, and Brice told her she’d be there shortly. But she never arrived.

Cellini said that was when she called Smith, who said they’d argued and that Brice got out of the car. Smith allegedly went looking for Brice after speaking with Cellini and reported back that he couldn’t fined her. Cellini said she told him she was going to file a missing person report, but Smith objected.

“And he was like, ‘Oh my God, no, you better call me first,’ and I said, ‘What?’ and the phone went dead,” Cellini said. “And then, here came the accident that his car was on fire.”

Police said Brice was Brice was last seen wearing a black, short-sleeved t-shirt, black sweatpangs, and pink and blue Ugg slides. She is described as 4 feet 11 and 190 pounds, with a small black heart tattoo on her right hand, a Mickey Mouse glove with the letters “AJ” on her left forearm, a rose on her left shoulder and right ankle, the word “NANNY” on her left shoulder, and “My Brother’s Keeper” on her chest.

Brice’s family told ABC6 they had hired a private investigator to search for her, and her 4-year-old son wants to know “Where’s my mommy?” Cellini said.

Dianna Brice murder: FBI joins search for Justin Smith in pregnant woman's killing​

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has joined the search for a man wanted in connection with the recent murder of his girlfriend and her unborn child in Philadelphia.

Last week, the Philadelphia District Attorney's office issued a warrant for Smith, 23, in the murder of 21-year-old Dianna Brice. In their bulletin posted Tuesday, the FBI says Smith is alleged to have shot Brice in the head multiple times, killing her and her unborn child.


The FBI says they are offering a monetary reward for information leading directly to the arrest of Justin Smith, who is known to have connections to Greensboro, North Carolina and New Castle, Delaware.

Officials say he has also been seen in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami, Florida, and in Atlanta, Georgia.
I am surprised they did not do this right away but I am glad they have.

Miami and Atlanta? Both big cities. The sightings seem confirmed if officials said as much, rather than just "tips" that could be true or false. He must have cash or someone still helping him...

Police renew call for help finding Justin Smith, wanted for murder of pregnant girlfriend​

Philadelphia police are again asking for the public's help in finding the suspect wanted for the murder of his pregnant girlfriend.


During a briefing on domestic violence Wednesday, police said Smith is still considered to be armed and dangerous.

"This individual has been on the run for some time so we can really use your help," said Lt. Frank Vanore of the Philadelphia Police Department.

Vanore added that, as with all Philadelphia homicides, there is a $20,000 reward for information leading to Smith's arrest and conviction.

Are the FBI still involved? If so, I am surprised they have not found him. He is at large, considered armed and dangerous, maybe his picture should be put on the news everywhere, especially since it is known he was not in the state the crime occurred.

Too bad they can't offer a reward for just turning in his location. He almost has to be staying with someone or has an abundance of cash...
