SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Police in California are asking for the public's help in locating a missing pregnant woman who was last seen over a week ago, reports CBS Sacramento.
Aubrey Andrews, 20, of Sacramento, was last seen on December 6 near her home. She was reportedly distraught when she left her residence around 10 p.m. and drove off, according to a Sacramento Police Department statement.
"I wouldn't want my son to grow up without his mom," said Edward Andrews, the missing woman's husband.
Through tears, Edward explains how the disappearance of his wife is impacting their 3-year-old son.
"He had said that, 'mommy's gone,'" said Edward.
Andrews, who is about 9 months pregnant, may have traveled to Southern California where she is known to have family and friends, reports the station.
"Well obviously, if you're nine months pregnant, you're pretty far along and that's another human life we're talking about. So we want to track her down as quickly as possible," said Sacramento Police Department spokesman Ofc. Justin Brown, reports the station.
Edward told the station he knew Andrews was upset and was leaving the house for a bit, but did not expect her to be gone this long without contacting family and friends.
Edward says she left with nothing but the clothes on her back -- even leaving behind her purse and wallet.
Aubrey is described as a Filipino, 5 feet 1 inches tall, 150 pounds, with brown/hazel eyes and black hair with gold or blonde highlights. While police say there are no obvious signs of foul play, they say her disappearance is concerning because she is pregnant.
Anyone with information on Andrews' whereabouts is asked to contact police at (916) 264-5471.
