El Dorado County Deputies Searching for Mother Missing Since Valentine’s Day

EL DORADO HILLS -- The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office is searching for a woman who has been missing since Valentine's Day.

Investigators say there is no evidence of foul play, but family and friends say the disappearance is very out of character.

Kasey Frey can’t help but worry for her dear friend Brooke Harris.

"I have known Brooke for two years through the dog rescue that I’m a board member of. She started volunteering for us. She is a very loving person," Frey said. "We had an immediate connection, an immediate friendship. But this is nothing I would ever have thought would have happened."

The 49-year-old was last seen on surveillance video at the Red Hawk Casino around 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. Her husband reported her missing that same day.

"Later on, her cell phone was found in her house. There was no evidence of foul play or any criminal activity inside of the house," El Dorado County Sheriff's Sergeant Anthony Prencipe said.

Now, investigators are asking for help in finding Harris, who is a wife and a mother of two.

She was last seen in her car -- a gray, 2015 Toyota Highlander with California plates.

"Just to check her welfare at this point," Prencipe said. "When a missing person is reported to us, we do everything that we can to find where they are."

If she is somewhere listening, her friends have a message for her.

"That we love her and we want her home," Frey said.

Anyone with information about Harris' whereabouts is asked to contact the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office.
