    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.

    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/4/homicide-suspect-ben-carter-gives-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!

    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.

    You should be able to just post stuff here. Any updates or other info. Also, you'll probably need to be verified as an "insider" with first-hand knowledge about the case. Here's a link that you can use to become verified.. Professional Posters & Verified Insiders - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    I hope that helps, and welcome aboard. :)

    Welcome sheilasister76. This is Sheila's thread. If ever you don't see her name on the home page, just look in Forums, then Missing, then Missing Forum Discussion, or search her name.

    I'm sorry for what you and your family are going through.
