BROOKLYN -

The mother of a girl from Borough Park who has been missing since May of 2016 is still fighting to bring her daughter home.

Rose Cobo's adopted daughter, the then-22-year-old mother herself Chelsea, disappeared on May 7, 2016, after checking in to Lutheran Medical Center for drug rehab.

"Last time I saw her, I kissed her and I hugged her and I gave her the coat off my back because it was a Friday rainy afternoon," Cobo says. "I told her I loved her. She called me and said, 'I'm coming home after dinner.' But she never came home."

Cobo sent in her daughter's DNA to a missing persons database, still hopeful that the worst-case scenario won't happen.
