CAMP LEJEUNE (AP) -- Sheriff's deputies are looking for a 20-year-old pregnant Marine who has been missing since mid-December. Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach had been expected to testify about something she witnessed on base at Camp Lejeune, although it's not clear what the case involved. Lauterbach is about eight months pregnant. The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says there are several findings and pieces of evidence about her disappearance that have officials "concerned." The Marine Corps says only that it's fully cooperating. The Ohio woman's mother reported her missing December 19th. Mary Lauterbach last spoke to her daughter December 13th. She says it's out of character for her daughter not to stay in touch. The Marine's cell phone was found near the main gate at Camp Lejeune.
