Search for Pregnant Teen Continues

As search and rescue teams continue to search the rugged terrain around Joshua Tree National Park for missing 19-year-old pregnant woman Erin Corwin, investigators are not ruling out foul play as a possible cause of her disappearance. Kim Baldonado reports from Twentynine Palms for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. on July 3, 2014.

The pregnant wife of a Marine now missing for more than a week had been planning a trip to San Diego.

Erin Corwin was preparing for her mother to visit and had bought tickets to SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo, according to the Praying for Erin Corwin Facebook page.

The 19-year-old disappeared June 28 from Twentynine Palms, California. Her husband, a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, reported her missing the following day, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The search is focused on Joshua Tree National Park, where Erin was reported to be going to morning she went missing.

The sheriff’s department homicide unit is investigating.

“There is no evidence to lead them to believe a crime has occurred. But, she’s still missing,” spokeswoman Cindy Bachman told NBC 4 in an interview Thursday.

Erin is described as 5-foot-2 and 120 pounds with light brown hair and blue eyes. She is three months pregnant.

Her blue 2013 Toyota Corolla was found in Twentynine Palms two days after her disappearance.

Searchers have been facing temperatures well above 100 degrees.

Editor's Note: The woman's car was found in Twentynine Palms. The original version of this story said it was found on base. We regret the error.
