A Twentynine Palms resident has come forward to say he saw missing pregnant Marine wife Erin Corwin on the day she disappeared.
Michael Beasley has told several media outlets he witnessed Corwin willingly get into a red car with an unidentified man, leaving her blue Toyota Corolla behind:
“They were just sitting and chatting. If she wanted to get out of the car and say, ‘I don't want to be in this car,' she could have.
“When I came back a half hour later, just the (blue) car was sitting there. Next thing, I hear the weekend goes by and Monday morning the sheriffs are there looking for this girl because she ain't home yet."
HLN reports police would not confirm to the network whether they've spoken with Beasley, or even comment on Beasley's assertion that he's an eyewitness.
In other news related to Corwin's disappearance, four search warrants have been executed, according to The Desert Sun:
The warrants cast a wide net for investigators, allowing them to search for everything from telephone records and computers to fingerprints and DNA.
