Heather Gumina aka Heather Waters missing: Pleasant Valley, California mother of three hasn’t been heard of for over a week as family members seek to find her.
A Pleasant Valley, California mother of three has been unheard of for over a week amid complaints the woman had been released too soon from the hospital where she’d recently been treated for a broken collarbone.
The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office released a statement on Facebook last week saying that Heather Gumina, 33, who is also knowns as Heather Waters – had been missing for several days from the Pleasant Valley area, located about 50 miles east of Sacramento.
To date no sign of the missing woman or her vehicle she’d taken off in has been seen.
Missing woman’s mother: ‘So, I’m praying that someone will hear this or have seen something or might know something’.
‘No one has heard from her to my knowledge. No one has heard from her,’ her mother, Joanna Russell told FOX40. ‘I’m sleep deprived, I’m sad, I’m scared.’
Russell said her daughter broke her collarbone July 15, and had complained about being released from the hospital. After spending the night at a Pleasant Valley-area home, the mother of three drove off in her 2005 black Infinity coupe on Wednesday and hasn’t been seen since.
‘It is very unlike her to not contact anyone, that’s why there’s a concern for her safety right now and a concern that she had a broken collarbone,’ Russell reiterated. ‘So, I’m praying that someone will hear this or have seen something or might know something and please report it to the sheriff’s’.
Russell told FOX40 the vehicle has distinctive pink markings, including two ribbon stickers on the back window and a pink gas cap lid that reads ‘His Queen.’ Russell said the incident has left her 4-year-old grandson especially worried.
‘Like, we can’t even really tell him. He keeps looking for his mom and he wants to go over there and he can’t,’ she said Tuesday. ‘Each day that goes by, the hopes of finding her ok get a little bit more scary.’
The sheriff’s office says it’s still too early to release details in the case, and so far no searches have been organized to try to locate the mother of three. Police declined to speculate if the missing Pleasant Valley mother met foul play.
Officials are asking anyone who may have seen Gumina last Tuesday or Wednesday in the area or who has additional information on the whereabouts of the 33-year-old to contact the sheriff’s office non-emergency line at 530-621-6600.
