ATLANTA -- A missing mother's 911 call claiming she was locked in the trunk of a car has her family and police concerned.

Wyteria Jackson's family said they haven't seen her since last Saturday.

"It's nerve-racking not knowing where she is or if she's safe," said Brittney Jackson, the missing woman's daughter. "I have younger sisters say 'where's momma, where's momma.' I don't know what to tell them."

The mother of nine told her family she was going to a baby shower on Saturday. She didn't return home. On Monday and Tuesday, she called her bosses to tell them she wouldn't be at work.

On Wednesday, she phoned Atlanta Police.

"The worst news ever," daughter Symonie Jackson said of the call to police. "I never thought that could happen."

It was just after midnight on Wednesday when the missing woman dialed 911 to tell a city of Atlanta dispatcher that she was locked in the trunk of a car.

"It went from she's missing to someone has her," said Andrew Jackson, the missing woman's husband. "I don't know if she's gotten herself into a position where she's gotten harmed because she wasn't thinking right. I do know something has happened."

Police say detectives are investigating the circumstances of the 911 call and are trying to determine if foul play is involved.

Investigators are concerned about Wyteria Jackson's safety.

"I just hope no one's hurt her," said Brittney Jackson. "She has a family, she has kids who love her and want her home."

Jackson left home in a 1998 Dark blue Saturn 4-door with a Georgia tag BNQ 1837. Her husband says the car has two Masonic emblems on it.

Anyone who sees the vehicle or Ms. Jackson is urged to call Atlanta Police.
