Heather “Kitty” Riggio was last seen by her family on May 6.

Detectives and family on Friday pleaded for help in finding a 20-year-old North Miami Beach woman who vanished earlier this month, police and family say.

Heather “Kitty” Riggio, a petite blonde, was last seen wearing a pink top, jeans and high heels. On the afternoon of May 6, she left her family’s house, 1601 NE 174th St., and got into a white SUV, police say.

Family described Riggio as a troubled young woman whose mother died when she was a child and whose father has long since disappeared.

A one-time exotic dancer, Riggio had struggled with drug problems and chosen shady friends, family said.

“She had been trying to straighten out her life and wanted to get on a good path,” said Riggio’s uncle, Chris Lee.

“She was a very fun girl, very bubbly, very energetic.”

North Miami Beach Detective Rich Rand said she left with an “associate” in the SUV that afternoon. He did not provide more details.

Since then, no one has heard from her.

“Her cellphone goes straight to voice mail. It’s very scary,” Rand said.

Anyone with information can call North Miami Beach police at 305-948-2940 or Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at 305-471-8477.
