Arkansas Woman Missing for Weeks

January 26, 2006 - Posted at 2:06 p.m. CST

WARREN, Ark. (AP) _ A mother of four has been missing for more

than a month, and Arkansas State Police have joined in the search

for her.

Forty-four-year-old Valerie Gibbs of Warren was last seen

December 17th. Her mother, Shannon Stevens, says she dropped off

Gibbs at a convenience store that afternoon.

State police say nobody knew where Gibbs was going or what she

was going to do after that.

Stevens says her daughter, who has three children in college and

one in high school, was in the process of getting a restraining

order against a male acquaintance she felt threatened by.

State police Captain Cleve Barfield says investigators do not

believe Gibbs disappeared willingly.
