Turkish police on Friday detained a man who exchanged online messages with a missing New York City woman after questioning him over her disappearance.
Sarai Sierra, a 33-year-old mother of two, went missing while vacationing alone in İstanbul. She was last heard from on Jan. 21, the day she was due to travel home.
The Anatolia news agency, quoting unnamed police sources, said in a report late on Thursday that police had reached a man who went by the moniker "Taylan" and who had been in contact with Sierra.
