That article is actually the full text of the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office press release since it appears verbatim on several small, local media sites, but the actual press release is not available yet on their website or Facebook. It's a small department, but it's still best practice to post press releases on websites and social media at the same time they are emailed to media.
A few points from the press release:
- Jennifer has no cell phone or car
- Was living at a shelter in Arcata, CA
- Mother hasn't heard from her in 6 months
- No bank activity in several months (mother receives bank statements)
- Willow Creek area is a wilderness area with a population of maybe 1500, about thirty miles east of Arcata-Eureka:
..but after six months, she could be anywhere. Come home safe, Jennifer.

The fact that Jennifer's mother specifically mentioned Jennifer not touching her bank account reminds me of similar situation regarding Christine Walters, who was also last seen in Eureka, CA, in 2008.
"Take the case of Christine Walters, a Wisconsin woman who went missing from Eureka on Nov. 11, 2008. The 23-year-old's backpack, wallet and ID were found just after her disappearance. A bank account with a few hundred dollars in it has not been touched. She was known to take long walks in the Arcata Community Forest by herself. She hasn't contacted her family." BBM

Jennifer's case is probably too recent to include her in the missing Humboldt Five, dating from 2014 back to the nineties. They were featured on Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hanson this week, so I'll post it here for information purposes.
The POI in the 2014 disappearances of Sheila Franks and Danielle Bertolini is Jim Jones, 43, who grew up in Humboldt. He also knew Karen Mitchell but hasn't been connected to her disappearance. It would be interesting to know if Jennifer crossed paths with him.
