UPDATE: 10/17/15 – A body was found by two fisherman in teh Cowlitz river on Tuesday. The men were turning their boat around when they saw a body in the water located about two miles downriver from where Elizabeth was last seen.
“The body is that of a female. The clothing on the body matches the clothing Elizabeth Pham was last seen wearing on Saturday, October 10th, when she went missing,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
Original Story: A Washington woman who was last seen ordering a meal at a I-5 restaurant in her pajamas is still missing.
Elizabeth Pham, 33, left her home in Centralia on Saturday morning by car and then was seen getting out of a taxi and then was seen again at a restaurant at Exit 59 about 29 miles south of Chehalis, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office states.
Elizabeth’s car was found along southbound I-5 near Toledo on Saturday evening with the keys inside. Authorities believe she walked away from the car and tried to get a ride with a truck driver who was heading to Redding, Calif. An employee of CeeCees stopped her from getting into the truck and called a taxi for her, which Elizabeth took.
When the police talked with the taxi driver he said that Elizabeth wanted to go back to her car to get some items. He said she seemed confused and was acting strangely. He dropped her off at the Shell station at Exit 59. Witnesses said she was in the Shell station for about 20 minutes wandering around then left and went to Beasley’s restaurant and ate. After she left there she was seen sitting under the overpass at Exit 59.
On Sunday Elizabeth’s makeup bag was found downriver from where Elizabeth was last seen according to Komo News.
Elizabeth has three children and is believed to be suffering from postpartum depression. She was wearing only socks, a purple pajama pants and a pink and red top.
