A Brooklyn mom struggling with a painkiller addiction hasn’t been seen for more than two weeks, and her family fears the worst.
Ciji Alexandra Flores, 32, was last seen on Sept. 24, when her mother dropped her off at the Walgreens at Flushing Ave. and Broadway in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
“She was going meet her housing counselor to look for her apartment, and she never came home,” said her mother, Evelyn Torres.
Flores lives with her family, including her 9-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter, on Nostrand Ave. She doesn’t work, Torres said.

“(Her son) said, ‘My mom would never leave me like this, Grandma, I thinks something happened to her,’ ” Torres said. Flores is addicted to oxycodone, according police sources and her mother. “I was trying to get her into a rehab, and she wasn’t very receptive.”
Flores became dependent after back surgeries two years ago, and was recently prescribed the painkiller after abdominal surgery last month, Torres said.
“My mind is going nuts at this point. Where is she? Is she alive? Is she dead? We just want to know at this point,” her mother said.
Flores has withdrawn from her friends recently and hasn’t updated her social media accounts.

A friend recently received a text from her phone saying, “I don’t speak Spanish, I got this phone from my friend Super. You can stop looking for whoever you’re looking for.”
Flores is described as 5-foot-5 and 165 pounds, with dark brown hair and eyes. She was wearing black leggings, a white tank top, a black sweater and black shoes.
