The boyfriend of missing Wichita native and Kansas City college student Toni Anderson is taking to social media to help find his girlfriend.

"It was love at first sight you know, and we've just been attached ever since," said Pete Sanchez.

Sanchez and Toni Anderson have been dating for two years. Anderson is the 20-year-old UMKC student who vanished early Sunday morning after she was pulled over near a QuikTrip in North Kansas City.

"I don't think I can cry anymore. It just doesn't feel real," said Sanchez. "I don't sleep. I'm brain storming what I can do to better the situation."

Sanchez says he's keeping busy - posting to Facebook and Twitter.

"We're mostly aiming for people with platforms of massive followings."

He's using #BringToniHome to spread her story. He's trying to raise money for a reward. And he's pushing back against rumors.

"I know some media outlets are trying to make her out like an exotic dancer."

Sanchez says others are questioning whether her working as a server at an adult night club played a role in her disappearance.

"Bottom line: It's a person. It's someone's daughter. It's my girlfriend...I just want to find out what happened. I want a conclusion to everything."
