Her parents were in Canada at the time. Her brother told police that when he came to check on his sister on Saturday she wasn’t there but the TV and lights were on. A painting had been removed from a frame hanging on the living room wall, the police report says.

There was no sign of forced entry or a struggle. Her blue 2010 Mazda was also missing.

Van Gelderen’s friend said he saw her on Friday and they had a brief conversation before she left, the friend told police. Her friend had not heard from her since. Another friend said she had a conversation with Van Gelderen on Saturday and later received a text from her saying she was lying down. Her friend said she hadn’t heard from Van Gelderen since and was trying to call her, but her phone kept going straight to voicemail.

Here is a photo of Van Gelderen that was being distributed on the Nextdoor website. People with information about her whereabouts are urged to contact police.
