Coos Bay has a population of a little under 10,000 people. What are the chances that both Glenda & Holly - who both live in the town & are in/connected to the mental health community there- go missing within 2 moths or so of each other?
Can't help but agree with other WSers that there may be a connection."All your life, all your love, all your hate, all your memory, all your pain, it was all the same thing. It was all the same dream—a dream that you had inside a locked room. A dream about being a person.” - True Detective

Daughter of Glenda Hawkins Campbell
Hello. I am Glenda's oldest daughter. I want to thank everyone for your continued support in the search for my mother. I wanted to comment and answer a couple questions I've seen.
1. The photo of Glenda sitting on the bench and the one of her on the poster was actually taken the exact same day less than two weeks before her disappearance. She and her friend came to visit me in Northern California and both photos were taken during that visit.
2. My half brother is a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic. He has lived with her off and on his entire life and at times mom was very concerned about his behavior. She has attempted for years to get help for him but since he is a 26 year old adult there was only so much she could do. Leaving her child out in the cold was never an option for her. I have spoken to the police about him several times and while I know he scared her several times, I don't think he had anything to do with mom's disappearance. I spoke to him after she was missing and he seemed very confused. When he said she had been abducted by aliens and murdered,etc... he was saying those things because he couldn't explain where she was. He thought she had abandoned him. He was very upset and kept telling me he had paid his portion of the rent and didn't understand why she would leave. I don't know him well but I can say I honestly didn't believe he was trying to hide something. The police searched the apartment and surrounding area many times specifically looking for clues that would indicate he was involved but they were unable to find anything. To tell you the truth my first reaction to the news that she was missing was to blame him but once I calmed down and thought about it logically I just don't think it's fair to automatically assume it's him unless something is found that indicates he might be involved.
3. The theory at this time is that mom had a "medical event", left the apartment to get air, passed out on the beach across the street and was pulled out with the tide. This seems like a stretch but when there is no other information that would lead to a more likely scenario I'm inclined to go with what the police have said. She hadn't been feeling well for months and wasn't taking her medication like she should. Her blood sugar was very high on Oct. 31 according to the meter we found in her apartment. The police have followed every single lead that has come in from any source but so far nothing has shed any light on what could have happened.
I'm confident that the police, family and friends, community, search and rescue teams, etc... have done and continue to do everything we possibly can to find her. We appreciate everything that has been done and appreciate those of you that have worked so hard to keep her search alive. Every single day is a struggle for those of us that knew and loved her. The pain of losing your mother is earth shattering and not knowing what happened to her is beyond grief. I'm holding out hope that she will be found and that our questions will be answered. Thanks again for your support.

Hello Angie.. I'm so sorry that you're here under these circumstances, and that there's still no sign of Glenda. My mom is diabetic and also bad with her meds (for that and other ailments) and I know just how confused (and also dead set on things) she can be. The "medical event" certainly sounds plausible to me - from what had been said about your brother if he had harmed her I don't believe he could have made such a thorough job of "disappearing" Glenda. He must be very confused and distressed to have lost a constant in his life.
My thoughts are with you both and I hope that Glenda will be found soon.

Thank you for joining and answering some questions! I have two uncles that have schziophrenia so I know how their behavior/words can be construed by outsiders as signs of suspicion when in reality they are just suffering from this mental disorder. I hope your half-brother is receiving the help and support he needs since your mother has disappeared.
I pray that Glenda will be found soon and answers will be found....."Promise me you'll always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

I have a hard time believing that Glenda had a "medical event", walked outside, collapsed and then the tide took her out and no one saw any of it. Unless it happened in the middle of the night, and I know of very few older ladies who would go out in the middle of the night, even if they felt badly. And without her cell phone? I don't know the area, but I was informed that it was not the "best" area. My grandmother lived in an area that sounds similar (not terrible, but enough crime to stay indoors at night).
Did she have any meetings she ever went to? Did her son have places he went to on a regular basis that his mother might have taken him to? I have to wonder if somehow Glenda and Holly ended up at some specific location, either at the same time or at separate times, and were spotted by some bizarre person who made them "disappear". I live in a very large city, and we don't have people dropping off the face of the Earth that close together. (unless they mean to be missing)
The "medical event theory" sounds wrong to me, unless there is more that I don't know.Just the facts, Ma'am.

Wish we had answers for both these lovely Coos Bay residents Glenda and Holly."Promise me you'll always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

Does anyone know if Glenda sought help for her mentally ill son at the Nancy Devereux Center? That is a place that apparently provides "case management"/crisis help/vocational services for mentally ill people in that area... or, does anyone know if she accessed services for him through Coos County Mental Health?
ETA: I have someone very dear to me who is a paranoid schizophrenic. Knowing what I know about schizophrenia, I doubt that her son had anything to do with her disappearance. I'm actually trying to figure out if there is a connection between Glenda and Holly Berry... and mental health services could be a connection between the two women (also, that she worked at Walmart and Holly frequently shopped there). I just think it's such a small world for two women to just drop off the face of the earth like that...

Still no sign of missing Coos Bay woman Glenda Campbell
It’s been almost a year since Glenda Campbell disappeared, and her friends want to keep her in the public eye.
Suzanne Lloyd, a friend of the then 59-year-old Walmart greeter who went missing in 2012, said friends and volunteers are planning a candlelight vigil Nov. 9.
