California Navy Wife Disappears After Sending Text

10/22/2014 AT 05:20 PM EDT

It’s every family’s worst nightmare.

After sending a text on Oct. 13 from her Point Loma, California, home, Navy wife Elizabeth Sullivan, originally from Hampton, Virginia, disappeared without a word, police told CBS affiliate WTKR.

Fearing the worst, her family set up a Go Fund Me page to help search for the 31-year-old.

“Elizabeth is a married loving mother of two young children – Ryan and Grier – and our family will do everything in our power to find her and bring her back home safely,” says a statement on the page.

Sullivan’s phone has remained off since sending that last text message, police said.

“We left it at ‘talk to you tomorrow’ … didn’t hear from her again,” friend Nathan Caracter told ABC News.

Caracter, who was the one to file Sullivan’s missing person report, said that she and her husband, Matthew, had been having marital problems.

“We are all very worried and concerned,” said Caracter.

But then on Sunday, nearly a week since she’d last been seen, Sullivan was spotted on a soccer field in San Diego, police confirmed.

Authorities did not make contact with Sullivan, who was wearing black pants and a gray sweatshirt, and they are still actively looking for her.

Sullivan’s father, Tony Ricks, told ABC News that he generally spoke to his daughter daily but hasn’t heard from her since that fateful Monday.

“I just would want her to call home,” he said. “No judgment, no blame. We just want you to be safe and okay and come home.”

Black-ish Is the Best Family TV Show You’re Not Watching

Black ish Is the Best Family TV Show You’re Not Watching

by Phoebe Robinson

1) I’m not just writing that because VH1 is paying me the big bucks to do so. Although, later on, I am looking forward to balling out of control at Forever 21 even though I’m ghorghor years old. What? VH1 isn’t paying me that much in order for me to reveal my age. 2) Yes, some of you are watching — ABC did recently give ask for a full season order — but the show is now hovering around the 6.5 million range, which is pretty decent, but I’m waiting for this show to become the breakout hit of the season. So without further ado, I present to you the seven reasons why Black-ish is the best TV show you’re not watching.


Yes, this show is vehicle for Anthony Anderson, but in my eyes, Tracee Ellis Ross is killing it as Rainbow, who is a doctor and Anderson’s wife. She is consistently charming, nails every punchline, and looks amazing. I really think this is the show that will get her some Emmy nominations, but if she doesn’t, her consolation is that she is absolutely cute – and funny! – while asking for a little pleasure down there.

For this reason and several others, I want to be Ross’ friend. And I’m not talking casual friendship. You know, the kind where you bump into someone on the street and the both of you pretend like you’re not counting in your heads how long you have until you can exit the conversation without looking like you didn’t want to leave the convo. I’m talking inside-joke having, clothes swapping, can-you-look-something-up-for-me-on-WebMD-and-tell-me-I’m-not-going-to-die-because-I-trust-my-uninformed-best-friend-forever-over-some-Harvard-doctor kind of friendship. Can we do that, Gabs? I know I’m standing in a long ass line of folks who also adore and wanna go halfsies on huevos rancheros sometime, but I’m putting out there. Let’s. Do. This.


In episode three entitled “Crazy Mom,” Dre’s (Anderson) status as the cool dad at his younger children’s school is taken away by another dad who brings popcorn. Suffice it to say, Dre does not handle it well:

Not only is him pointing out that no one would eat popcorn on the Underground Railroad because it’s too loud such a funny and specific joke, but I also like the running theme that is being carried throughout the episode: even though Dre is black, he does not know more about Harriet Tubman more than the white teacher does. I totally forgot Harriet was a spy! Well, not that one.

We’re not done yet! More on race, gender, and political correctness

PEOPLE Readers Have Strong Reactions to Renée Zellweger’s Defense of Her New Look

10/22/2014 AT 04:55 PM EDT

Renée Zellweger‘s response to PEOPLE about her new look has sparked a deeper conversation about celebrity appearance, personal choices and honesty.

“I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows,” Zellweger, 45, told PEOPLE exclusively Tuesday after social media lit up over her appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Beverly Hills the previous night.

The Oscar winner also noted that she viewed public interest in her look as “silly,” adding that any changes folks see in her are a result of a “growing period” as she slows down and recalibrates to enjoy life in her 40s.

“People don’t know me [as] healthy for a while,” says Zellweger, who also stepped out on Sunday to support her good friend and publicist, Nanci Ryder, in her battle against ALS. “Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I’m happy.”

Many PEOPLE readers rallied around Zellweger’s playful comments about her new look.

“I don’t know if she had plastic surgery or not but I love her response! She sounds like a lady in her 40s. It’s so awesome how you find your true self in your 40s and don’t give a damn what people say or think about you! Kudos Renée!” Cynsational said.

Added another, also named Renee: “I’m glad Renée has chosen a healthier and happier regimen for her daily life. Life is too short to always try to please others and live up to ‘their’ standards. Taking care of yourself should be your priority, and then your loved ones. I do want to say though I wished she had not chose to have such a drastic change in her eyes. Those eyes were her signature, along with her pouty mouth which I loved. But if she feels better about her self, who am I or any one else to judge what is best for her.”

Some readers, however, felt she was also sidestepping the “Did she or didn’t she?” question.

“I’m delighted Renée is happy. However, there is no doubt she has had a boatload of work done,” online commenter Cloud City noted. “If she’s so comfortable in her own skin, why did she surgically change herself into unrecognizability?”

Others offered similar pushback.

“Who does she think she’s kidding? Being happier and healthier is awesome, but aging doesn’t cause an eye lift … a plastic surgeon does. Renée, good grief! Just be honest!” another PEOPLE reader named Lisa wrote.

Over on Facebook, comments ran the gamut from deeply supportive to highly skeptical.

Katie Ann Spenard : I think she looks different but equally as beautiful. Her statements on being healthy and happy are the only thing that matters. Being in a peaceful place in life should be everyone’s goal. Great job, Renee. The people who are being negative don’t know what it’s like to make huge changes in your life! Keep on keeping on!

Zandra Cooper: I don’t think she looks horrible…. just different. Getting healthy doesn’t completely change your appearance though. Glad she’s happy but just admit there has been some surgery. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Charity Pack: I think she looks kinda like robin wright.

Robin Fuller Bates: She made the same mistake as Jennifer Grey. Unrecognizable!!

Sonia Azizi : Her body, her mind, her soul. Who cares? Whatever makes her happy
