ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Brookhaven police are looking for a ‘critical’ missing woman, they said.

The family of Aimee Lafakis, 48, reported her missing on Friday after nobody heard from her past 2 a.m.

“The main thing is finding Aimee, just where she is,” Doug Adams, Lafakis’ ex-husband, said.

Adams told Atlanta News First Lafakis has a strong support system searching for her and daughters who are ready to see their mom.

“They need her and we just want her to come home,” Adams said.

Lafakis is a white woman standing 5 feet 3 inches tall. She has black hair and green eyes. Lafakis also has multiple tattoos, including one of cats on her left forearm, a heart on her right ring finger and a heart on the back of her neck.

Police said they arrested Brandon Wineinger after interviewing multiple family members and other people close to Lafakis. But his detainment isn’t directly tied to Lafakis’ disappearance, police said. Wineinger faces charges of tampering with evidence and “false statements or writings, conceal facts or fraudulent documents in matters of government,” booking records show.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Brookhaven police tip line at (404) 637-0636 or Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-TIPS.
