Mother of Missing Australian Woman in the Area Again Searching for Her Daughter
Jeannie Kreimer won’t give up. Her daughter, Asha Kreimer disappeared in September of 2015 in the Point Arena area. Jeannie, a nurse who lives in Australia, said she goes home long enough to earn money to come back to the area and look.
“I go home for two months and work and then I come back and spend all my money and go back and work again,” she told us in an interview today.
“A year ago in Garberville, someone said they saw her sitting in front of Rays [Food Place],” Jeannie said. “They didn’t know she was missing at that point…They recognized her tattoo.” Asha has a red triangle tattooed on her right wrist.
Jeannie explained she has received a number of tips that Asha might be in Humboldt County. “I have also heard she is on a farm in Shelter Cove,” Jeannie explained. “I hear ‘She’s over here…No ,she’s over there,'” Jeannie acknowledged ruefully. “I’ve been everywhere. I’ve been in crack houses.”
As reported here in earlier stories, Asha had some sort of a mental breakdown just before she disappeared and was taken to the hospital. When she was released, she went with friends to a restaurant in Point Arena where she disappeared. (See the earlier article for a more in-depth description of what occurred.)
Jeannie thinks Asha is still dealing with the breakdown. “I don’t think she knows I’m looking for her,” Jeannie said. So she keeps coming back to the Emerald Triangle searching for Asha. “I came here because I hadn’t really searched Eureka really well,” she explained. “I am in Eureka at the moment and it seems there is a person matching her description here…I am going to stay here for a week or two.”
A new missing person’s unit in Humboldt County is giving Jeannie Hope. “I think that is amazing,” she said. “It is a tiny bit forward” in helping the families of missing people.
Another glimmer of hope for Jeannie is that a film crew saw her passing out flyers in Garberville last year. She told us, “I serendipitously ran into Netflix film crew. I was in Garberville handing out flyers. Part of the documentary film is on missing persons.” They interviewed her on film again just recently in Eureka. “Hopefully, I get Asha poster’s poster on there,” she said eagerly. “I want as many people as possible looking for her.”
When last seen, Asha had long, brown curly hair and weighed about 145 pounds. She has brown eyes, is 5’10” and has an Australian accent. She has a red triangle tattoo on her right wrist.
Jeannie wants to remind our readers, “The people on the streets are just regular joe’s. Sometimes they have people they need to contact,” she said. “Remember, Asha might not be in her right mind. She is very traumatized. She looks unwell. She looks tired.”
Jeannie is continuing to search for her daughter. She hopes that others will keep an eye out, too. If you have any information for Jeannie call (707) 513-9138. You can also stay up with what Jeannie is doing trying to find her daughter by liking a Facebook page dedicated to Asha. (Click here.)
