Hillsborough deputies release details about woman's 'suspicious' disappearance

TAMPA — Deputies are asking for the public's help in the search for Dana Boshell, a 38-year-old woman who likely went missing in July.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office considers her disappearance suspicious. They say Boshell was last seen by family on July 4 and has had no contact with them since then.

Deputies say there has been no withdrawals from her bank account since July, and no personal items in her apartment have been removed.

Her family reported her missing Monday.

Boshell is 5-foot-5 and 120 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. Her last home was in Courtney Palms, a condominium complex off U.S. 301 near the Leroy Selmon Crosstown Expressway.

Deputies ask that anyone with information about Boshell's whereabouts call the Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
