Family of Missing Woman Pleads for Help

Fearing she may have been a victim of foul play, the family of a 31-year-old woman who disappeared last week asked for the public's help Wednesday in finding the mother of two.

Barbara Burchartz, a receptionist who quit her job about a month ago, was last seen Nov. 29 walking out of her home about midday. She had dropped off her children, 8 and 11, at school that morning.

"Her children are her whole life," said Betty Barry, Burchartz's mother. "She would never go off like this intentionally."
