Anderson's daughter Amber created a facebook page for her mother.  Here's a message posted on facebook from Amber:

"My mother was last seen In Moscow, Idaho on Friday, April 16, 2010. My sister and I reported her missing on Monday, April 19th after she failed to make it to work and we were unable to contact her. This type of behavior is very uncharacteristic of our mother. The past three months have been a nightmare for her. She was a victim of stalking and feared for her life. The stalking compelled her to sleep in the living room of her home with the lights on instead sleeping in her own bedroom".
