Heidi Planck search: 7 unanswered questions in hunt for mom as it's revealed her boss is being 'investigated for fraud'

MYSTERY continues to surround the disappearance of a missing mom who vanished after appearing "edgy" at her son's football game.

Heidi Planck was last seen on October 17 in security footage outside her home in Los Angeles, California.


Now it's emerged her boss was under federal securities investigation for possible fraud charges, according to local reports.

Heidi's dog was found wandering alone on the 28th floor of a high rise building 12 miles away from her home on the day she was last seen.

But it was not until three days later when she was reported missing by her ex husband Jim Wayne after she failed to pick up their son from school.

He had seen Heidi at the football game on October 17 but told local outlets she left early and appeared "edgy".

Heidi's mysterious disappearance – coupled an FBI raid on her home – has left friends and family with a number of questions.

Here, The Sun takes a look at the case.

WHY DIDN'T HEIDI PICK HER SON UP?

Planck was reported missing when she failed to pick up her son from school on October 20.

That's when ex Jim Wayne, who shares custody of their son with Planck, said he knew something was wrong and went to the police.

Wayne told ABC he ahd last seen his ex three days earlier at her son's game, adding: "She may have been a little bit edgy. I don't know."

He told CBS: "If you have seen anything, anything at all, we have a 10-year-old boy at home that’s looking for his mom and we need to find his mom.

"People don’t just disappear."

WHY WAS HER DOG IN THE HIGH RISE?

Planck's friends posted flyers in LA on Saturday after Planck’s dog was found wandering an apartment building on October 17.

Los Angeles Police Department Detectives have not said if Planck is connected to the complex.

It was 12 miles from her home where she was last seen on security footage with her pet.

WHO FOUND HER DOG?

Heidi's dog was found on October 17, hours after she left the football game.

It is unclear who found the dog and when.

It is also unclear when Heidi's loved ones discovered her dog had been found alone and where he had been in the three days since she was last seen.

Jarrod Burguan, a retired San Bernardino police chief, said: "People are very, very attached to their pets, and their pets do not just go missing.

"There clearly is something out of place here."

One friend told CBS: "It seems to us that everything stems from that building where her dog was found."

WHY WAS SHE 'EDGY'?

The Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement that security footage from October 17 shows her leaving her Palms home on L.A.'s Westside with her dog, CBSLA reports.

Planck went to Downey to watch her 10-year-old son play football, but her ex-husband Jim Wayne said she left the game early.

"She may have been a little bit edgy. I don't know," Wayne told CBSLA.

"I just know that was the last time we spoke to her."

WHY DID SHE LEAVE THE GAME EARLY?

It is unclear why Heidi left the game early.

But her friends have said she would never leave her son.

One told CBS:"She’s a good person. Good mom.

"She’s always, always, like the person you want to have around you."

Her ex Wayne added: "She's a good mom. She's really a good mom. She wouldn't let a day go by without talking to her son, there's no way."

WHAT WAS FOUND IN THE FBI RAID?

The FBI was seen on Friday evening entering her home with guns drawn; they had been expecting to find a crime scene there, according to local reports.

They were later said to have left the home with files; it is not known what they contain.

Heidi's friends say they have not been allowed in her home.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE THREE DAYS SINCE SHE WAS LAST SEEN?

It is not known where Planck was in the three days since she was last seen and the day she was reported by missing by her ex-husband.

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