A 19-year-old pregnant woman from Tennessee was reported missing in California over the weekend.
According to News Channel 3, Erin Corwin was last seen leaving her home at the Twentynine Palms Marine base around 7 a.m. Saturday. She was reportedly headed to Joshua Tree National Park.
The expectant mother was reported missing Sunday by her husband, marine corporal Jonathan Corwin.
“I mean my gut was just tore up, just tore up,” Corwin’s mother Lore Heavilin, who lives near Knoxville and was planning to visit her daughter later this month, said. “You feel like you’re walking in a nightmare.”
Authorities found Corwin’s cell phone at an undisclosed location in Twentynine Palms, News 3 reported.
Investigators have not ruled out foul play in her disappearance. More than two dozen volunteers are helping search for Corwin in some remote areas.
Corwin is five feet, two inches tall and weighs around 120 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information on Corwin’s whereabouts is urged to contact investigators at 909-387-3589 or by calling 1-800-78-CRIME. A Facebook page also been set up.
