BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - Police on Wednesday questioned the boyfriend of a Bed-Stuy mother of two who went missing a week earlier.

Lasheen Harris, who is the missing woman's boyfriend, tells News 12 that he is cooperating with police in an attempt to locate Destiny Dawson.

"I didn't expect her to be out this long," Harris says. 

Dawson was last seen leaving her home in the Marcy Houses on April 20.

Harris says police are looking into her finances, her emails and her phone records.

As News 12 has previously reported, Dawson's mother says the 21-year-old went out to meet a friend for dinner but did not return.

Police say they searched her apartment and found nothing suspicious.

Dawson's children, aged 2 and 3, are staying with other family members in Harlem.
