After talking on the phone, Reyes walked out of the camera's frame and hasn't been seen since.

Reyes' stepfather tells US news outlet WFAA he is "distraught" by her disappearance, adding that her son is her "world" and that she wouldn't abandon her beloved Jeep.

Police told FOX4 that investigators have spoken to the person that Reyes was on the phone with and cleared them.

The babysitter, identified as Maria, says she had spoken to the Mesquite, Texas mum at around 4pm during her lunch break from her new job at a used car lot in Dallas.

My mind is going in different directions … Im hoping shes found safe. Not just for her sake, but for her sons and her family," Dan Fuchs added.

The babysitter who was watching Reyes' son told police she spoke with the mother around 3 or 4 p.m. and discussed her new job at a used car lot in Dallas.

The footage shows Reyes, dressed in a red polo shirt and jeans, talking on the phone while standing next to an elevator, then walking out of the frame.

“Her child is the most important thing in her life,” Maria, who declined to give her last name, told FOX4.

Prisma Denisse Peralta Reyes, 26, was scheduled to collect the six-year-old after work on Wednesday night but didn't show up, Fox 4 News reports.

The babysitter said there was nothing strange about the phone conversation, only that the mother didn't show up to pick her son up at the usual time.

“I send a text message to her," she told FOX4. "She no response. That is so, so strange,” she recalled.

Reyes' stepfather, Dan Fuchs, told WFAA that Reyes, originally from Veracruz, Mexico, was a member of the Texas National Guard and recently became a U.S. citizen.

“I’m a bit distraught, my mind is going in different directions," he told WFAA. "I’m hoping she’s found safe. Not just for her sake, but for her son’s and her family.”

Authorities are asking that anyone who spots Reyes or has information about her whereabouts should contact the Mesquite Police Department at 972-285-6336.
