Officials in California say they found the car of a missing woman from Oak Ridge, but still have no idea where she is.

Nineteen-year-old Erin Corwin's husband reported his wife, who is three months pregnant, missing on Sunday.

"It's emotionally exhausting. It's physically exhausting. It's terrifying. My mother-in-law says it's like walking in a nightmare," said Corwin's sister-in-law, DeeAnna Heavilin.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office found Corwin's car in Twentynine Palms, the city where she and her husband currently live.

Corwin was last seen leaving her home to go to the Joshua Tree National Forest.

Heavilin said Corwin's family is hoping the 19-year-old soon-to-be mother is simply lost in the park.

"She didn't start driving until she was 18 because she's just really timid and she has a terrible sense of direction. We were all scared for her to travel home on her own because she had to go through airports by herself and it can be overwhelming if you don't have a good sense of direction," Heavilin explained.

Cindy Bachman, public information officer for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, said the sheriff's department will not disclose the location of where Corwin's car was found.

"There's belief to be some suspicious circumstances involved and our Specialized Investigation Division has been asked to come in and work on this missing person investigation," she said.

Corwin's relatives and friends have created a Facebook page for the search. It can be found by visiting www.facebook.com/LocateErin.
