UPDATE 8:17 a.m.: The Anderson Police Department issued this press release:
On December 12, 2016, the Anderson Police Department received a report of a missing person from the Anderson area. The mother of 44 year old Jessica ROGGENKAMP contacted the Anderson Police Department to report her daughter missing.
ROGGENKAMP was last known to be driving her black 2010 Ford Mustang to the Igo area at about 03:00 AM on December 10, 2016. Prior to ROGGENKAMP’s departure, she obtained a sleeping bag and pillow. ROGGENKAMP never arrived at her destination.
On December 11, 2016, at about 2350 hours, a Deputy Warden with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife located ROGGENKAMP’s vehicle parked in a remote area of Trinity County, south of Highway 36. ROGGENKAMP’s vehicle was unlocked with the keys still in the vehicle. ROGGENKAMP was not found around the vehicle. Nothing was located in or around the vehicle to indicate or suggest any type of struggle had occurred.
Anderson Police Investigators obtained cell phone data information for ROGGENKAMP’s cell phone and found she had not made or received any calls since December 10, 2016. The last cell phone tower location record showed ROGGENKAMP to appear to be driving in the Highway 36 area of Platina. Anderson Police Investigators recently learned that ROGGENKAMP is familiar with the remote area of Trinity County where her vehicle was located off of Highway 36. In fact, ROGGENKAMP visited this very same area just after thanksgiving during a day trip with her daughter.
The Anderson Police Department is coordinating with the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Team to conduct a ground search of the area where ROGGENKAMP’s vehicle was located, in an attempt to locate her.
ROGGENKAMP’s disappearance is believed to be voluntary but is still being investigated according to protocol. There are no known or reported details, suspicious circumstances, or other information which is indicative of foul play. At this time, there is no indication that this case involves an abduction or other like incident. Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Anderson Police Department at (530) 245-6526.v
