Turkish police have reportedly found the dead body of Sarai Sierra, a New Yorker who had been missing in Turkey since Jan. 21, in İstanbul.
The woman was found on Saturday in the Sarayburnu neighborhood in İstanbul and she was reportedly found out to have been stabbed to death.
Sierra, 33, came to İstanbul on Jan. 8. She stayed for 13 days in the basement-floor room of a small house on Kömürcü Zeynel St. in the backstreets of Beyoğlu. She paid online in advance. The mother of two contacted her family for the last time on Jan. 21, the day she was supposed to begin her journey home to New York. That was the last time they heard from her.
