Troopers were contacted by Cowden's mother on Oct. 25, reporting that she has not been able to make contact with her daughter for approximately one month. Cowden reportedly suffers from mental illness and may be in need of medical attention.

Cowden is described as a white female with hazel eyes and is approximately 5-foot-6. The family does not believe that Cowden has access to a vehicle or a cellular phone. Cowden's last known address was at the St. Charles Hotel in Hudson, N.Y.
