Family and friends of a missing Fortuna woman are seeking help in locating Danielle Nicole Brooks-Bertolini, 23, who has not been seen or heard from since Feb. 8 in Fortuna.

Brooks-Bertolini's father and mother, Jon Bertolini of Crescent City and Billie Jo Dick, of Plymouth, Maine, are both in the Fortuna area, along with other family members and friends, helping in the search.

Brooks-Bertolini is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. She has blue eyes and bleach-blond hair. She has a lip ring on the right side of her mouth.

Bertolini says his daughter is very close to her sister, Mariah, and other family members and would never willingly let this amount of time go by without being in contact with them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fortuna police at 707-725-7550.

An account has been set up at Coast Central Credit Union to help the family cover some of the expenses of the search. Contributions can be made to: Donations for Danielle, account number 190635, at any of its branches.
