STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Police have asked for help finding a teacher at a Staten Island school who was last seen Saturday night.

Jeanine Cammarata, 37, is a mother who teaches at PS 29, officials said.

She was last seen on McVeigh Avenue at her boyfriend's home, police said.

He then called police to file a missing persons report Tuesday after she didn't show up to work for the second day in a row.

Police have been questioning those close to her, but say there is no reason to suggest foul play at this time.

On Facebook, friends of Cammarata said she'd never risk losing her job and not showing up to work was unlike her.

However, police sources said Cammarata told a friend Monday afternoon "she needed to get away for a while."
