As the fourth of a new month comes, answers into a mother-daughter disappearance are still slim. 

Joanna Clark's older brother, Alfred, says he spoke to her a week before she went missing. He says there's no way she'd leave her six kids behind and now he's fearing the worst. 

As time continues to tick, so does Alfred's patience. 

"She's not going anywhere. She was happy with where she was," Alfred said. 

Joanna and her oldest daughter, Shariece, haven't been seen since Feb. 4. 

"This is what makes it so odd is that she wasn't having trouble with anything. She wasn't thinking about leaving. She's got seven kids. She loves her kids," Alfred said. 

But Baltimore Police think trouble found the mother and daughter. 

"We do suspect foul play. It's very possible here and that's not fair to the family because you're hanging on to hope that we can find these ladies alive and well and that is still our hope," T.J. Smith, chief of media relations for the police department, said. 

The two went missing at separate points that day near their home on Round Road in Cherry Hill. 

Since then -- nothing. 

"Every part of their life stopped on Feb. 4 from a public standpoint. That's work. That's school. That's social media, you know, contacting family," Smith said. 

Contact Alfred had with Joanna a week before she disappeared. 

Now he and family are explaining to six kids where their mother and oldest sister went. 

"She's was all they knew and now they're left in relatives' hands to raise. We can't be quiet on that. They're going to want to know, when they get older, what happened to their mom. Where are they," Alfred asked. 

While police suspect foul play, they don't have leads on what may have happened. If you can help in any way, call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP.
