Pregnant Woman, Marine's Wife Disappears In California

Pregnant Woman, Marine's Wife Disappears In California

The family of a 19-year-old pregnant woman who disappeared this week in Southern California is reaching out to the public for help and prayers.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Erin Corwin left her home on the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base on Saturday morning, and her husband reported her missing the next day after she failed to come back.

The Press Enterprise reported on Wednesday that authorities had located Corwin's car, but weren't disclosing where exactly they found it, saying "there was no indication of her direction of travel or current whereabouts."

Authorities haven't ruled out foul play, but Corwin's family say they think it's likely she just got lost.

By Thursday, major media outlets such as Fox News and People began to pick up the story, and Corwin's family took advantage of the added press to get the word out about their own efforts to find her.

The family created a Facebook page called "Locate Erin" where they encourage anyone with information on Corwin's disappearance to contact the authorities.

For its part, the local sheriff's department is discouraging untrained volunteers from joining in the search on the ground because of the difficult rocky conditions in the area.

Corwin was reportedly preparing for a visit from her mother when she disappeared. She is three months pregnant.

19 year olds have no business getting pregnant these days. This story drips of dysfunction.

Everybody here just ASSUMES cell phones work everywhere in the World. IF she went into Joshua Tree Park, there is NO cell service in much of the Park. Many people have died there in the Summer because they just assume the same thing. Kids nowadays just can't survive without their phones.

99.9% of the time, when the wife is pregnant and they turn up missing, the husband killed them.

Don't like this. Hope it has a happy ending. Why didn't her husband report her missing the same day she went out - she's pregnant. Wasn't he worried? Doesn't seem so.

Why would she get lost? Presumably she knows the area where she lives. I can understand the family not wanting to believe or think the worst, but people don't usually just wander off for days on end unless they have something wrong with them.

I am from Twentynine Palms. She was looking for places for her & her mother to go in the Joshua Tree National Park. That is over 500,000sq miles. People get lost in there ALL the time.

Would she go to the park without a map? If she had car trouble, she could have used her cell phone, unless there's no reception where she was. This time of year it can get very hot there, and I'm surprised she planned to take her mother there, even though it's a very interesting place. If she got lost there, after this length of time, I'd be very concerned about finding her alive.

Palm Desert is my winter home... Who would want to go to Joshua Tree in the summer (and pregnant)? But maybe mom wanted to see it. I think last year a German couple was lost and died there.

Agree, the police will put him at top of list because this not rational for a young woman to just semply get lost. Pray for the family and hiope and pray she is found but already know the worst is yet to come. People just do not just come up missing after so long of period. Trully, trully sad and bad.

I would hope my hubby wouldn't wait till the next day to report me missing. Her family must think she is really stupid.

Most times, authorities won't take a missing persons report for 24-48 hours.......
