Missing Bay Area woman is federal investigator

OAKLAND — Family, friends and co-workers scoured through neighborhoods Wednesday looking for clues and alerting others on the disappearance of a Northern California woman who works as an investigator for the federal public defender's office.

Sandra Coke has not been seen since leaving her home in Oakland on Sunday evening after reportedly telling her 15-year-old daughter she was meeting with someone who found her missing dog.

Coke said she would be back in 30 minutes. Her daughter called police when her mother did not return home that night.

While police are treating Coke's disappearance as a missing person's case, her sister believes Coke may have possibly been involved in foul play.

"She is a loving and devoted mom whose family needs her desperately home," Tanya Coke told KTVU-TV.
