Last week, Days of our Lives star Victoria Konefal asked her social media followers in the Brooklyn area of New York to keep an eye out for her missing aunt, who suffered from dementia and had wandered off. Now she’s letting everyone know that tragic news that her body has been found.
Victoria Konefal — Family Heartbreak
The actress originally shared the shocking news via her Instagram stories that her aunt, Czeslawa Konefal, had gone missing and was last seen at St. Stan’s church on Diamond and Driggs. Now CBS has reported the details.
She also gave an update, via Instastories once again, and it was the worst outcome possible. “My aunt has been found but unfortunately she did not make it,” she wrote. But the young star, who plays Ciara on the NBC soap, wanted everyone to know how much she appreciated their help.
Grateful For Those Who Searched
“To those of you in NY who searched for her, to those who shared her missing person’s poster and to those who sent your loving prayers, on behalf of me and my family, we greatly appreciate you. From the bottom of our hearts. Thank you,” she wrote.
But that wasn’t all. She then added, “I know many of the fans actively searched for her and messaged me about it. I haven’t responded but know that I acknowledge you and I thank you for taking time out of your lives to try and help.”
