Police Discuss Search for Erin Corwin

Posted: Updated:
 TWENTYNINE PALMS -- There's still no trace of missing, expectant mother Erin Corwin.

It's been more than a week since she went missing from Twentynine Palms.

Very few people are searching for 19-year-old Erin Corwin Tuesday, but the Morongo Basin Captain tells us they will have many more searchers Wednesday looking in specific target areas.

Erin Corwin, a Marine wife living in Twentynine Palms, went missing on Saturday, June 28th.

Reportedly, she was on her way to Joshua Tree National Park to look for a camping site.

Her car was found in Twentynine Palms the following day.

We asked police if it was found near the Marine Corps Base.

"It was near the base and the desert, yes, but keeping mind that's a very large base," said Captain Dale Mondary with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

They wouldn't tell us if her keys or belongings were in the car.

Erin's husband reported her missing Sunday morning.

"He believed he had to wait 24 hours to report a person missing," said Captain Mondary.

We asked if there were search efforts on the military base.

"At this point there are not, there are investigative leads that we are following, there are plans to again do some more target specific searches, but at this point in time we are not exclusively searching in the desert area of the bases."

Police told me at this time there is no evidence of foul play, but it unusual how she disappeared.

The search still includes parts of Joshua Tree National Park, and other specific locations -- they aren't telling us where-- in the Morongo Basin.

"Each night I go home a little dejected that we haven't found her, but we are continuing to look for her, and I am confident that we are going to find her," said Captain Mondary.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department at 760-366-4175.
