    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.

    Missing Person - Case 201602448

    On Monday, May 16, 2016, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office spoke to a citizen, who wanted to report her 31 year old daughter missing. The citizen she last spoke to her daughter, Jennifer Leann Atkins about (6) months ago.
    The missing person’ mother said her daughter was living in the Eureka area and at times was staying at a shelter in the Arcata. The mother said she receives her daughter’s bank statements at her house and there has been no bank activity in the last several months which is alarming to her.

    Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.

    Nothing on their Facebook that I can see, which probably gets more local traffic than the website. They don't seem to use their twitter much.

    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.

    Two videos at link.

    Unidentified remains found:
    Sgt. Ken Swithenbank of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that human remains had been found near a transient camp north of Redway today.
    ...
    Though Swithenbank said that the remains were “not recent.” They had been there “a significant length of time,” he explained.
