Police scour surveillance footage to get a clue for missing military spouse

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department is scouring a surveillance video provided by the U. S. Marine Corps base in Twentynine Palms to get some clue about missing military spouse Erin Corwin.

Corwin, the 19-year-old pregnant wife of Marine Cpl. Jonathan Corwin, was last seen at 7 a. m. on Saturday, 28th of June, leaving her home on the Marine Corps base and heading for Joshua Tree National Park.

Jonathan Corwin reported his wife missing on the next day, 29th of June. Police located her Toyota Corolla car in Twentynine Palms on 30th of June.

Capt. Justin Smith, a spokesperson for the Marine Corps base, confirmed on Tuesday that a video captured by a security camera installed at gates surrounding the base was given to detectives.

Earlier, on Monday, Marines on the base gathered on a call by a Navy chaplain to create a kind of support group.

Confirming the gathering, Smith said, "The chaplain invited other military families out as a kind of closed-door support group. The mood in here is somber, but hopeful. Everyone's anxious for her to come home. We all look forward to her return."

Smith added that the area of Twentynine Palms was generally "pretty safe" and that the base enjoyed close relations with the local community.

Corwin wanted to scout out the Joshua Tree National Park in advance of a planned family visit. Blue-eyed, 5.2-feet tall Corwin has no known medical or psychological issues.
