Desperate search for missing Lake Elsinore woman continuing

LAKE ELSINORE — Authorities, family members, and concerned citizens are continuing to search for a woman who went missing July 22. The missing wife and mother of three has not been seen or heard from since going missing from outside her home nearly two months ago. Although a missing person’s report has been filed with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department no leads have been developed at this point, according to Judy’s desperate daughter and other family members.

According to her daughter Kylee Henne, the missing woman, Judy Henne, 41, was last seen at her Lake Elsinore residence when she stepped outside the home to smoke a cigarette. When family members went to check on her, they discovered she had vanished. She did not take any of her belongings or medications with her, causing her family to fear the circumstances surrounding her unexplained disappearance.

“My family and I are in dire need of the community’s help since we have no money and resources left to look for her,” Kylee said in a social media plea for information about her mother’s whereabouts.

Since the day of her disappearance, family and friends have been searching the southern Riverside County area, including known homeless encampments, public areas where transients are known to frequent, and anywhere else they could possibly think of, as well as hospitals and jail facilities.

“We have also checked many woman shelters in the area,” Kylee told RCNS in a plea for help spreading the word of her mother’s disappearance.

According to Kylee, Judy suffers from mental health issues and was not thinking clearly when she was last seen.

“There was no fight. My family and I were cooking dinner and then she walked out to have a cigarette and when I went to check on her she was gone,” Kylee explained.

“This is extremely unlike her and her family is becoming very worried for her safety,” Kylee continued. “I can not express this enough of how scared and heartbroken my family is not knowing where our mother is.”

Judy stands five-foot six, weighs about 120 pounds, and has brown hair and eyes. She also has a tattoo of a rose above her right breast. Although Kylee could not provide a clothing description, she said her mother often wears her clothes backwards or inside out – because “she believes she is a trend setter doing that.”

“I just want my mother to know that we are not mad at her at all and just want her back because we are deeply worried for her and that we love her,” Kylee explained.

Antone with information about Judy’s disappearance or who has recently seen her or knows her current whereabouts is encouraged to immediately contact Kylee “any time of the day or night.” She can be contacted on Facebook, or at (951) 385-6558 or (951) 430-2446. Tipsters can also contact Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station at (951) 245-3300. Callers can refer to incident file number L192110074 and can remain anonymous.
