She was last seen by her roommate 2 days after Thanksgiving, however she reported Henry left her wallet, cell phone and car behind at their residence. At the time, Henry had a broken ankle and was believed to still be in need of crutches or a knee scooter.

Officers with Arcata Police responded to the location and conducted a search of the area. During the search, Erin Henry was discovered deceased a short distance east of the highway.

With the assistance of the Humboldt County Sheriff/Coroner, Ms. Henry’s body was recovered.

The preliminary investigation revealed no sign of foul play.
