Paighton Houston, 29, was last seen leaving the Birmingham location of the Tin Roof, a live-music bar chain, according to Birmingham police. Officials said she appeared to have left the bar willingly with two men at about 10:45 p.m.

She later sent a text message to someone she knew saying she might be in danger. Her family said calls to her number are going straight to voicemail, and that her debit card had not been used since she went missing, NBC affiliate WVTM in Birmingham reported.

A post on the Birmingham Tin Roof's Instagram said staff members who worked that evening have been assisting police with the investigation. The statement said off-duty police officers were at the bar Friday, which is common practice during busy hours.

"We hope and pray for Paighton's safe return and encourage anyone to reach out with any information," the statement said. Tin Roof has nearly 20 locations in major cities across the United States.

Houston was wearing ripped jeans, a coral T-shirt and Converse shoes, according to police. She is 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds.
