Destiny Dawson

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — The missing Brooklyn mother of two young daughters has been found safe, NYPD confirms.

Police sources said 21-year-old Destiny Dawson, last seen on April 20 near her home in the Marcy Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn., may have been heading to the Carolinas. It was not released where the woman was found.

Dawson’s mother told PIX11 that she was supposed to be meeting up with a friend for dinner, but she never came back and they have not been able to locate her. They said she would never leave her children and are suspicious of her live-in boyfriend, who they accuse of having a history of domestic violence with Destiny and first reported her disappearance.

However, the NYPD has ruled him out as a person of interest.
