DOWNTOWN LOS ANGLES (CBSLA) – It’s almost two weeks ago that Heidi Planck disappeared.

Friends of Planck posted flyers in Downtown LA around the corner of 12th and Hope Street on Saturday after Planck’s dog was found wandering through the 28th-floor halls of an apartment building nearby.

Los Angeles police detectives have not said whether Planck is connected to the complex.

On Friday, federal investigators and LAPD detectives issued orders to search her home in the Palms area, but they have not revealed whether anything was found.

Planck, a 39-year-old woman with a 10-year-old son, was last seen by her family at 7800 Block Gardendale Street in Downey on Oct. 17, according to a LAPD statement.

Jim Wayne, Planck’s ex-husband, said she left their son’s football game at the break the day she was last seen. She seemed a little distracted, according to Wayne.

“If you’ve seen anything, anything at all, then we have a 10-year-old boy at home looking for his mother, and we need to find his mother. People don’t just disappear,” Wayne said.

Friends of Planck told CBSLA Reporter Jeff Nguyen that she would never drop out of her son’s life.

“She’s a good person. Good mother. She’s always, always like the person you want around you,” said one of Planck’s friends.

Planck is white, 5-foot-3 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.
