Jessica Goodwin, a missing woman from Arizona who authorities and relatives have agreed to have gone missing under mysterious circumstances, was found alive over the weekend. Investigators said they were able to trace phone records to an Indian reservation outside of Phoenix, where they found the 28-year-old man dehydrated and in critical condition on Sunday afternoon.
She was airlifted to hospital and on Monday morning the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office announced that her health was improving. “This is the outcome we have all hoped for and prayed for,” Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb said in a statement on Twitter.
Goodwin, of San Tan Valley, was last heard from almost a week earlier on Monday January 11 when she called off her job.
A close friend, Chandler Stork, told KSAZ that was the number one cause for concern. “If she’s going somewhere to clear her head, she’ll take her dog for sure. If she’s going for a drive, a 20 or 30 minute ride, she’ll bring her dog. If she gets out of town, she brings her dog. She never leaves her dog for more than one night, “Stork said.
Stork and others tried to reach her on her phone, but it had been turned off. âShe never goes completely without contact,â Stork said.
Goodwin’s car was found a few days later, abandoned, damaged and near a car wash on Thursday, and authorities said although foul play was not suspected, “the location and manner in which the vehicle was found are of a suspicious nature “.
Authorities continue to investigate her disappearance and anyone with more information can contact the sheriff’s office at 520-866-5111.
