    CA - Sheila Franks, 37, Fortuna, 2 Feb 2014

    Sheila Franks


    Sheriff's Office searching for a 37-Year-Old Mother Missing From Fortuna -

    FORTUNA, Calif. --
    The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office and the Fortuna Police Department are searching for a missing woman. The missing person is Sheila Franks, 37, known to live in Rio Dell and Loleta. Her mother called to report her missing, because her family had not heard from Sheila in the last month and a half. Sheila's family says shes has been very consistent with communicating with her son, which has not occurred for over a month and is very out of character for the woman. Shelia was last seen in Eureka on Jan. 11.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Not quite MSM, but one of the best news sources in the area, with an array of comments from people who know Sheila.

    She and Danielle Bertolini Brooks disappeared about the same time from the Fortuna area.

    According to FB posts, the families think there is a connection. The news last night said that the Humboldt county Sheriff does not believe there is a link. (I'll try to link that story later).

    understandable.
    it is a different world behind the redwood curtain, i lived in humboldt for 10 years, went to humboldt state.
    some shady stuff happens in the woods up there.

    when i was going to college in arcata, i found out we lived less than a mile away from a serial killer. only way they found him is he turned himself in. freaked me out.

    Here is a link to the other missing woman's FB page and T-shirt fundraiser. According to Danielle Bertolini Brooks family, the same man who was the last to see Danielle, was also the last to see Sheila! This is rumor, of course. They are very upset about the way LE has handled their case and are also advocating for Sheila, who went missing around the same time and place as Danielle.

    In July 2011 Sheila was wanted for assault with a deadly weapon in a daytime throat slashing in nearby Loleta. I haven't been able to find any news articles about what happened in this case, and perhaps she was never charged, but I wonder if her disappearance was related (i.e. vigilante revenge).

    Thankfully, Shannon is safe back at home. I don't think the Shiela and Danielle will have as happy an ending. They both ran with a tough crowd.

    There are many heartbreaking posts on Sheila's FB page. The poor family.

    https://www.facebook.com/HELPFINDSHEILASHERRELLFRANKS

    There is a poster showing both Sheila and Danielle Bertolini Brooks. Here is Danielle's thread.

    Here is a link to an interview with Sheila's sister and Danielle Bertolini's mother on KMUD. Both women disappeared within a week of each other and were each last seen with the same man. This confirms the rumor I mentioned in post #5. They give his name, but I won't post it since he has not been named by LE as a POI as far as I know.

    I'm beginning to get a little confused by the County's investigation techniques. Unless I'm completely misreading the article I just came across, the media station's tipped off police that a wanted homicide suspect's talking to them, and police have brushed them off?

    http://lostcoastoutpost.com/2014/may...ives-his-side/

    The two missing women here make me a little uneasy - it's reminding me of the two missing women in Orange County....which then turned into four, and has now, finally, resulted in the arrest of two suspected serial killers.

    By the way, not suggesting there was any unnecessary delay in OC - the first firm evidence they got, they were on the case!
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    I am a little confused on where to post information about my missing sister Sherrell Sherrell Franks. Sheila has been missing seems February 2 2014. She went missing from Fortuna California. I have all kinds of post on Facebook and I am trying to get the word out and keep her face in the media in hopes that someone can help with her whereabouts. If someone could help me I would greatly appreciate your help.
