A massive search was underway Wednesday at Joshua Tree National Park for a 19-year-old pregnant woman, who disappeared four days ago after leaving her Twentynine Palms home.

Corwin, who is three months pregnant, was last seen leaving her home about 7 a.m. Saturday, apparently headed to Joshua Tree National Park.

Homicide detectives are also investigating her disappearance.

Corwin is 5 feet 2 and 120 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.
