University Place mom has been missing for two months. Have you seen her?

A University Place woman hasn’t been seen for two months, and investigators are asking for the public’s help figuring out her whereabouts.

Rachael Collins, 37, was last seen leaving the home of a relative on Aug. 12.

It wasn’t uncommon for her to stay gone for a day or two, but her children, mother and grandmother became concerned when she never returned home.

Collins was reported missing Sept. 12.

She does not have a car and uses public transportation.

She is known to frequent Lakewood and the Hilltop area of Tacoma.

“We are looking for any information on her location or well-being,” Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

Collins is 5-feet-9 and 180 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes.

She also goes by the name Rachael Harris.

Anyone with information is asked to call Tacoma-Pierce County Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
