Young pregnant military wife vanishes

Investigators are searching for the beautiful, pregnant wife of a U.S. marine corporal who was last seen over a week ago.  19-year-old Erin Corwin was reportedly last seen leaving her Twentynine Palms, CA home around 7 a.m. on June 28 to go to nearby Joshua Tree National Park.  Her husband of a year and a half Jonathan reported her missing the next day.  Days after she disappeared, Erin's mother Lore Heavilin found out that her daughter was about 3 months pregnant. 

Investigators have been searching the park, which is over 1,000 square miles, for any trace of Erin.  So far, the only clue they've found is her car, which was discovered 2 days after she vanished in Twentynine Palms, near the marine base where her husband is stationed.  Police are now calling her disappearance suspicious, and homicide detectives have been brought in.

The search continues for missing Michigan mother, Jessica Heeringa, who vanished on April 26, 2013.  Heeringa was working the nightshift alone at an Exxon Gas Station. The 25-year-old disappeared leaving behind her purse and keys. No money was stolen from the gas station and no sign of Heeringa has been seen since.

Police are looking for a silver or grey minivan who witnesses say was at the gas station around the time of her disappearance. A surveillance camera from a nearby store captured the minivan driving away. Jane Velez-Mitchell wonders why there were no surveillance cameras at this particular Exxon station.
