Deputies searching for missing Centralia mother

Posted: Updated:
CENTRALIA, WA (KPTV) -

The Lewis County Sheriff's Office asked for the public's help finding a Centralia mother of three who disappeared over the weekend.

Elizabeth Pham, 33, was last seen on Saturday, Oct. 10. Pham's family is concerned she may be suffering from postpartum depression.

Deputies said Washington State Patrol troopers found Pham's car along I-5 in Toledo that evening, unlocked with the keys inside.

When they started investigating, deputies found out that Pham had walked to the Gee Cee's truck stop nearby and tried to get a ride from a truck driver who was headed to Redding, Calif. A truck stop employee stopped her and called her a cab instead.

Deputies said the taxi took her to her car to get some of her belongings and then dropped her off at a Shell station at exit 59. The taxi driver said Pham seemed confused.

Pham spent about 20 minutes at the gas station and then went to Mrs. Beesley's Burgers nearby.

A witness later reported seeing a woman matching Pham's description sitting under a freeway overpass, staring into the Cowlitz River.

On Sunday, a fisherman found Pham's makeup bag downriver and turned it in to Castle Rock police, deputies said.

Pham was last seen wearing a red or pink top, purple pajama bottoms and socks. She is white, 5 ft. 6 in. tall and 122 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who has information on Pham is asked to call the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.
