BOSTON - Olivia Ambrose was last seen outside Hennessey's Bar in downtown Boston around 11 p.m. Saturday night, January 19.

She had been out with her twin sister, Francesca, and some friends after moving to the city recently. She worked for Toast, a Boston software company, and had just relocated to Jamaica Plain.

But Olivia, or Liviy, wasn't heard from the next morning and wasn't located until Tuesday afternoon.

Boston Police are asking for help locating the woman and say they are searching for a man caught on surveillance footage.

  •  11:04 PM: Ms. Ambrose is seen leaving a bar located at 25 Union Street (Hennessy's) with a white male who has since been determined to not be involved in her disappearance.

  •  11:42 PM: Approximately 40 minutes later, two unknown males are observed inviting Ms. Ambrose to walk with them in the area of Congress Street and State Street. One of the males appears to walk ahead while the second male places his arm around Ms. Ambrose and directs her towards the State Street MBTA Station.

  •  12:01 AM: Approximately 20 minutes later, additional video shows Ms. Ambrose being accompanied by that same male, still with his arm around her, exiting the Bunker Hill Community MBTA Station in Charlestown. The other male party is no longer observed in any surveillance video moving forward.

  •  12:13 AM: Approximately 10 minutes later, Ms. Ambrose and the unknown male are observed again in the area of Green Street walking together towards Bartlett Street. A short time later, phone records indicate Ms. Ambrose's phone was in the general area of the Bunker Hill Housing Development.
