    Police have released more details in the case of missing 30-year-old Machesney Park resident Katrina A. Smith.

    Smith was reported missing Tuesday, Oct. 23, by her husband. She was last seen at around 9 p.m., Monday, Oct. 22, leaving her Machesney Park residence to run an errand.

    Smith’s vehicle was found abandoned at Obispo and Ventura in Machesney Park at approximately 7:50 p.m., Oct. 23. Neighbors reported seeing the vehicle parked at that location earlier in the day, unoccupied.

    Smith’s purse was recovered Wednesday, Oct. 24, a short distance from where the vehicle was located. During a search conducted by family and friends on Oct. 26, papers towels were recovered with a substance believed to be blood on them. These items were recovered in a field between Obispo and Ralston Road. Tests will need to be conducted to determine whether the blood belongs to Smith. Her cell phone was recovered in the 700 block of Ralston Thursday, Oct. 25

    Family, friends and neighbors spent the night searching Schoonmaker Park, which is located not far from where police found Smith's car.

    Smith's sister Miraynda Castro just wants to see Katrina home again, "Katrina, sissy, if you're out there please come home. We just love you and miss you. We just want to see you and hear your voice. I'm here waiting for you."

    i see that this is just outside of rockford, ill. which the last time i was there had some pretty rough areas. i dont know much about machesney park tho, but i hope they are looking in wisconsin too as its pretty close to there too.

    what kind of errand was she running at 9 pm? that seems odd, but it sounds like it really could be a carjack with the purse stolen...but is it common to kill the owner of the car rather than just throw them out? i usually see that and sometimes the carjacker is in such a hurry that they take off with kids/babies in carseats... moo

    Glad to have a local posting, thank you SM83. Look at the FB Missing page, maybe they are organizing searches there?
