(CARLSBAD) Carlsbad police are calling the disappearance of 34-year-old Kathleen 'Kathy' Scharbarth "suspicious."
Scharbarth was last seen at her home on Via Puerta in Carlsbad Wednesday night at around 11pm. She was reported missing Thursday morning.
Police have executed a search warrant on her home, and have deployed search teams, including canines, to try to locate her.
