Details of Disappearance
Franks was last seen in Eureka, California on February 2, 2014. At the time of her disappearance she was living in Rio Dell, California and Loleta, California. Her family reported her missing on March 13; it's very uncharacteristic of Franks to be out of touch with her loved ones.
23-year-old Danielle Bertolini disappeared on January 29, 2014, a few days before Franks did. The two women both had blonde hair and blue eyes, they knew some of the same people, and they were last seen by the same man, who is considered a person of interest in both cases. Because of this, authorities believe the two cases could be linked.
In March 2015, Bertolini's skull was found near the Eel River, upstream from Howe Creek. It was identified in May. Authorities believe she was the victim of a homicide. Her murder and Franks's disappearance remain unsolved.
Thoughts? I am placing Sheila's case in the Missing on TV section because her disappearance was profiled on Dateline NBC's digital series called 'Missing in America.' She was mentioned along with Danielle Bertolini when Bertolini was still also a missing person: www.nbcnews.com/feature/missing-in-america/missing-america-danielle-bertolini-sheila-franks-n315921
Sheila's case has also been mentioned alongside other high-profile missing women cases from the Humboldt area, including Karen Marie Mitchell, whose case has aired on America's Most Wanted: amwfans.com/thread/1279/karen-marie-mitchell-california-1997?page=1
