RENTON, Wash. -- A Washington state mother was reported missing recently after she didn't return from a date with someone she met online, according to KCPQ.

Ingrid Lyne hasn't been seen since Friday night. Her disappearance is being investigated by the Renton and Seattle police departments, the television station reported.

Edward Franceschina told KCPQ he last saw Lyne checking her mail before she left for a Seattle Mariners baseball game. The mother of three was meeting someone she had met online for a date.

“I don’t know; it’s not good,” Franceschina said in an interview Sunday. “The purse, the telephone and everything was in the house.”

Her car -- described as a gray 2015 Toyota Highlander with Washington license plate No. AUW 3230 -- is also missing.

Friends and neighbors became concerned when Lyne, a nurse at a local hospital, didn't show up Saturday morning to pick up her three children, KCPQ reported.

Police were out in her neighborhood investigating all weekend, according to neighbors.

"The longer it goes on, the more you think she’s not coming back,” said Franceschina.

Her friends have taken to social media in a frantic attempt to locate the missing mother.

"PLEASE SHARE MISSING my friend Ingrid Rounsaville Lyne has been missing since Friday night ... we have to bring her home she has 3 children that need her," one woman posted on Facebook.

No further information was immediately available.
