Mother of Chicago woman missing in the Bahamas says she's `deeply concerned' about her disappearance

CHICAGO (AP) — The mother of a Chicago woman who vanished last week in the Bahamas while attending a yoga retreat says she's “deeply concerned” about her daughter's disappearance in the Caribbean nation.

Taylor Casey, 41, was last seen on June 19 at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat on Paradise Island, Bahamas, according to a news release from her family. The Royal Bahamas Police Force issued a missing person poster on June 21 alerting the public to Casey's disappearance.

Her mother, Colette Seymore, was traveling on Tuesday with others to Paradise Island and Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, to meet with local authorities.

“We are deeply concerned for Taylor’s safety and well-being," she said.

“I believe Taylor is in danger because she was eager to share her yoga retreat experience with others upon her return. Taylor would never disappear like this,” she added in the news release.

Casey has been a yoga practitioner for 15 years and was looking forward to returning to Chicago from her retreat so she could share “her newfound knowledge and experience with others," the news release states.

An email was sent Tuesday to the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat by The Associated Press, seeking comment on Casey’s disappearance.

Her family is urging anyone with information about her whereabouts to come forward, saying that “every lead is crucial in their efforts to locate her.”

Casey is a light-skinned Black woman who stands about 5-foot-10 inches (1.77 meters) tall, weighs 145 pounds (65 kilograms) and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Jose Altuve hits 3-run homer and Astros beat Rangers 6-3

HOUSTON (AP) — Jose Altuve hit a three-run homer, Hunter Brown struck out five over six innings and the Houston Astros won their 10th straight home game, 6-3 over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

“How pretty is that swing, it never gets old,” Astros manager Joe Espada said about Altuve's homer. “Big homers, big moments, he hits it. The way the ball carries, it's exciting. I've been seeing it for years.”

Alex Bregman and Jake Meyers also homered while Josh Hader converted his 18th straight save opportunity. The Astros have the best record in the majors since June 1 at 25-11.

Holding on to a 3-2 lead in the sixth, Altuve crushed a 1-1 changeup from Texas reliever José Ureña 365 feet into the left field seats to make it 6-2.

“(I was looking for) a pitch I could hit, something up and in the middle,” Altuve said. “I was chasing all day long pitches out of the zone. So, I really focused on getting one pitch to hit.”

Houston’s defense kept the scorecard clean early for Brown. With two on in the first, Chas McCormick ended the inning with a diving grab in right field. The Astros then turned a pair of inning-ending double plays in the second and third innings.

“Those were huge,” Brown said. “With the first-inning pitch count kind of getting up there, those were big time for the overall feel of the game. Get out with two quick ones there and projected us into a good spot."

Brown (7-6) held the Rangers to two runs on five hits and walked two for his sixth win in his last seven starts.

“I thought that was a heck of an outing," Espada said. “His stuff was explosive and was pretty good. He made some really good pitches ... We needed an outing like that."

Hader struck out two of the three batters he faced in the ninth inning. This was his second-straight game with a save and his sixth in July.

“He's coming at you with heat,” Espada said.

Texas starter Andrew Heaney (3-10) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits, walked two and struck out five in five innings. It was Heaney’s fourth loss in his last seven starts.

“He kept us in the game,” Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said. “Overall he gave us a chance. That's a good-hitting ball club. I thought he had good stuff, so overall I thought he threw fine.”

Corey Seager hit a two-run homer, his 18th of the year, and went 2 for 4 with three RBIs. Marcus Semien went 3 for 3 for Texas in the leadoff spot.

Five of the Rangers' seven hits came from Seager and Semien at the top of the lineup. The rest of the lineup went 2 for 25 with two singles. Texas left six runners on base.

“That's probably what did us in tonight, we had a tough time getting some guys on base after those two,” Bochy said. “Corey got us back in the game, it's a one-run game. We like our chances there but they answered back with a two-out rally in the sixth.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rangers: RHP Tyler Mahle (right UCL repair surgery) will pitch three innings in his third rehab assignment in the Arizona Complex League … RHP Dane Dunning (right shoulder tightness) threw a live batting practice in Anaheim on Wednesday.
