A flight attendant from Astoria who disappeared from her workplace has been found dead.

The remains of Sierra Shields, 30, were discovered Wednesday afternoon at at Riker’s Island West. Shields had last been seen Thursday, January 14th at noon at LaGuardia Airport, where she worked.

Shields’ father, Chris Shields, told Eyewitness News that his daughter showed signs of distress that were “out of character” when talking with family members the previous week.

A co-worker, who was last to see Shields, said Shields turned in her flight attendant equipment before she disappeared.

Family and friends had posted yellow posters around Queens, trying to locate Shields.
