The search for Erin Corwin, the missing wife of a U.S. Marine, has intensified over the weekend. The pregnant 19-year-old Corwin has been missing more than a week, according to NBC News on July 7.
Corwin left her home in Twentynine Palms last week to scope out the Joshua Tree National Park for hiking trails. She is three-months pregnant, a fact her mother found out after she had gone missing.
Corwin’s mother appeared on “Fox and Friends” over the weekend after she had flown into California for her planned vacation to visit her daughter. She was asked if she suspected that her daughter’s husband might have something to do with her daughter’s disappearance and she adamantly said “absolutely not.”
Corwin left her home about 7 a.m. on June 28 headed to the national park, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. Their department, along with the Los Angeles Police Department are heading up the search for this missing wife and mother-to-be.
Corwin’s car was first reported to be discovered on Wednesday of last week, but police confirm it was found on Wednesday, in Twentynine Palms, two days after she went missing. While the original reports said the car was found on base, it was not. It was found in Twentynine Palms. While there is no reason to suspect foul play, the police homicide unit is investigating, according to the Los Angeles Times today.
Corwin went missing from her home on June 28 and her husband reported her missing the next day. The pregnant woman wouldn’t have just decided to get a way for a while, she was expecting her mother’s visit and had purchased tickets to SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo.
Cindy Bachman from the Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said that there is no evidence that a crime has been committed, but the woman is still missing. Erin Corwin is described as 5-foot-2, weighing about 120-pounds with blue eyes and light brown hair. The pretty 19-year-old does not appear pregnant, as she is early in her pregnancy.
The temperatures for the search party have soared to 100 and above in the last few days. Erin’s mother said on Fox News that the ringtone that she has on her phone for her daughter is a horse, who nays and gallops when her daughter calls. She said she would give anything to hear that again right now.
She is staying at her daughter’s home and waiting for any news on the whereabouts of her child. She said she found it hard to be standing in Erin’s kitchen doing dishes and she doesn’t know where her daughter is.
