LOS ANGELES ( KTLA) -- A search is underway Wednesday for a special needs woman who disappeared from her Lomita home more than a year ago. There is concern she may be living on the street or has been the victim of foul play.

32 year old Raven Joy Campbell lived with her family on Western Avenue in Lomita. In June, 2009, her family went on a trip but Campbell decided to stay at home. When her family returned, Campbell was no-where to be found and a missing persons report was filed.

She was seen leaving her home on Thursday, June 4.

According to L.A. County Sheriff's Detective Richard Lopez, Campbell may have been in the company of people who may have either wanted to take her social security money or do her harm in other ways.

Campbell's June social security check was cashed, but her July and August checks were returned.

Lopez tells KTLA that homeless shelters in the area have been checked for Campbell. He is now checking with all of the cororner's offices in California and the neighboring states of Nevada and Arizona.

Campbell is described as a 32 year old African-American woman, 5' 4" tall, approximately 178lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.

If anyone knows where Raven Joy Campbell is, they are asked to call the L.A. County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500
