SATURDAY, JUNE 26 - 7:50 A.M.
ESCONDIDO POLICE WATCH COMMANDER TOLD ABC 10NEWS THE MISSING WOMAN WAS FOUND FRIDAY IN ESCONDIDO AND "WAS OK."
SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego County sheriff’s officials are asking for the public’s help in finding a woman who disappeared after a trip to Pala Casino.
According to sheriff’s officials, someone contacted deputies at the department’s San Marcos station just after 10:30 a.m. Thursday to report Katelyn Schwindt missing.
The person who contacted deputies said the 27-year-old Schwindt posted a message on her Facebook page that indicated she was at Pala Casino on the evening of June 24. In the same message, Schwindt wrote that she was possibly drugged and assaulted.
ABC 10News spoke with Schwindt's friend, Krystle Hudnell. When Hudnell saw the Facebook posts, she said there were too many typos for it to be a joke.
Some parts of it read:
"I DONT KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPE D I HAVE BEEN ASSULTED AND I AM LOST AND SCARED…"
"PLEASEV IM INNEDD OF HELP BAD IM INJURED I THINK IM BEING KID NAPPED…"
"As soon as I saw her post, it didn't seem like her, and it just seemed really scary," Hudnell said.
Officials said deputies and detectives from the San Marcos station investigated but were unable to find her.
Schwindt is white, 5 feet 5 inches tall, and has brown hair and brown eyes. It is unknown what kind of clothing she may be wearing.
Friends have a mass search party planned at Pala Casino on Sunday.
Anyone with information on Schwindt’s whereabouts is urged to contact the sheriff’s department at 760-510-5200.
