On March 1, the Sheriff’s Office shared images of the missing EMT as captured by surveillance cameras in the area. Investigators have reviewed the security camera footage and Wallace’s family has confirmed her identity.

Johnna Wallace told WMC-TV, one of KSLA News 12′s sister Gray TV stations, that she reported her daughter as missing Feb. 26 after co-workers came looking for her when she didn’t report to work. “Out of the clear blue, she just was gone.”

Rachael Ann Wallace has a 5-year-old daughter and has been a paramedic with the Southaven Fire Department for several years.

“She’s made her life about helping other people and she loves her job, it’s a difficult job,” her mother told WMC-TV. Now she worries that her daughter needs help.
