    She got into a black four-door car with a white female driver and has not been seen since.
    Family members and law enforcement officers have attempted to contact Rice on her cellphone but it appears to be off.
    Detectives interviewed family members and a people she knows but no one has seen the missing woman. 
    They also used a K-9 search team in a large wooded area off Sorrells Baxter and Eaker roads in western Lincoln County but did not locate any signs of the woman. 

    Her mother Brenda can't help but believe something horrible has happened to her.

    “She'll break her neck to get to a phone just to call and say, ‘What are the boys doing?’" said Brenda Green.

    Green said there's no way her daughter would just take off without checking in on her two sons Skylar who's five and Alex who is 10.

    Alex has a special message for his mother.

    "I love you momma. Can you please come home?" he said. 

    The woman's debit or credit cards have not been used since before her disappearance. Detectives have also followed up all leads in the case but nothing has led to Rice.
    Toasha, who also goes by Nikki Green on her Facebook page, is a white female, 27 years old with blue eyes and reddish brown hair. 
    She is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds.
    Anyone with information about the missing woman is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office at 704-732-9050, the Lincoln County Communications Center at 704-735-8202 or Crime Stoppers at 704-736-8909.
