UPDATE: Niceville Missing woman

Investigators are looking for a Niceville woman who disappeared in the middle of the night.
Shigeko Freeman has been missing for more than ten days.
   
Laura Hussey "Shigeko Freeman's car was found the morning of Sunday, January 6. It was in an emergency lane on the Mid-Bay Bridge that runs between Niceville and Destin"

Inside the car, deputies found her keys, her ID, and a note.
It had her husband's phone number on it, and the words "call 911"

Pastor Phil Daniels "Now that we're ten days into this, you just go, Where is she? What happened? Where did she go?"

Shigeko Freeman's church is Niceville Assembly of God.
Her work as a sign language interpreter made her a big part of the deaf ministry.

Pastor Daniels "She's just a great lady, always smiling, always just, she lights up a room with her smile"

For years, Freeman worked with special needs kids at Silver Sands School.

She was the district's Support Professional of the year in 2012. Not a person co-workers would ever expect to disappear without warning.

Randee Chambers "It was shock and disbelief. I can't imagine I couldn't imagine Shigeko doing anything like this."

Law enforcement teams did water searches near the bridge, but found nothing.
 Laura Hussey "Anyone who might have seen Miss. Freeman is asked to call Crimestoppers or the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office."
