Gabrielle Bianca Himmelein was last seen January 27 at approximately 7:15 p.m. in the 12000 block of 35th Street in Gobles, according to a report.

She apparently told family members that she was going out for the evening and did not return.  Family members checked with friends and other family members to see if they knew where she was with no success.

Family members contacted the Sheriff’s Department for assistance in the investigation and now officials are seeking the public’s help locating her.

Himmelein is 5 feet 7 inches tall and 110 lbs.  She was last seen wearing frayed blue jeans, a red and black striped sweater, grey boots and a puffy brown waist-length jacket with the words “Baby Phat” in gold letters on the left front side.  She was also carrying a pink and purple purse with a shoulder strap.

Deputies say Himmelein does not have a vehicle or a cell phone.

Update: According to reports Mrs. Himmelein left the residence indicating that she was going out for the evening. She was observed leaving, however no one witnessed what type of vehicle or a description of anyone that might have been in the vehicle.
