New York woman goes missing in Istanbul on photography trip

Sarai Sierra followed her passion to Istanbul - a budding photographer lured by the possibilities the picturesque, ancient city has to offer.

But the day before she was supposed to fly back home, the 33-year-old mother of two went missing.

Sierra had taken up photography last year, posting her work to the photo sharing app Instagram and quickly amassing 3,000 followers.
