Person Of Interest In Missing Spokane Woman Case

SPOKANE, Wash. - Detectives confirm they now have a person of interest in the disappearance of 39-year-old Heather Lynn Higgins who was last seen alive September 20, 2010 leaving her apartment near the intersection of 10th and Maple on the South Hill. The new development in her case is fueling the fight for information Wednesday as Heather's mother, Jackie Forney, speaks out on National Missing Children's Day.
 
"We just know someone out there knows something," said Forney. "I've never given up hope, but it's been so hard not knowing anything at all. I just want to know what happened to my daughter."
 
Forney is now trying to raise money for a reward fund and has reached out to the parents of missing kids across the Inland Northwest. She launched a special Facebook group last week titled, "Missing People In the Inland Northwest, Let's Bring Them Home." The group is fighting to raise awareness about the massive amounts of missing people across the region.
 
"We have a missing persons problem here in the Inland Northwest. There are too many people who have disappeared, and not enough answers. We hope that someone looks at our page on Facebook and remembers something about Heather and the hundreds of other missing people across the state. Hopefully, this a platform to help bring families some peace, and maybe even their loved ones back."  
 
Higgins' family  has not had any contact with her since September 20th and are concerned for her welfare. Forney says Heather has not contacted any of her close friends or family and that her daughter suffers from Bi-Polar and by now, might be off of her medication.
 
"Heather would never abandon her apartment with all of her belongings, especially her two cats," said Forney.
