46 year old Dawna Natzka has been missing since December 21, 2011. She was last seen leaving a Christmas party in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas where she worked as a police dispatcher. Dawna is described as 5’6″ with brown hair with blonde highlights and brown eyes.
“Somebody please call,” urged Hot Springs Village Police Lt. Ricky Middleton. “We need some help.”
Specifically, police need help finding mother of three and dispatcher Dawna Natzke.
“She’s family, and we’re going to do everything we can to try to find her,” said Middleton.
Her vehicle, a 1997 teal green Ford Escort Wagon, was found burned abandoned in the Ouachita National Forest off Ark. Highway 298. However, the mother of three is still missing. The fact that her vehicle was found burned cannot be a good sign. Usually this is done as an effort to hide evidence.
