Pregnant woman goes missing the same day she was induced (Humble Police Department)

The Humble Police Department is searching for a woman who disappeared on the same day she was scheduled to be induced.

Jessica Van Raub, who is nine-months-pregnant, was expected to fill up the gas tank of her vehicle around 6:30am Monday at a gas station on FM 1960. Police say her vehicle was found abandoned at a nearby clinic.

Right now investigators say they have no evidence to suspect foul play. The expecting mother's car was found parked at the Davita Dyalisis Center this afternoon. Family members find that very strange, because Van Raub was headed to the gas station and back home.

Family members tell me she was supposed to be induced this morning at 8am at Methodist Hospital in the medical center. Investigators said Van Raub left home around 6:20 am, headed to the gas station.

But, she never made it to the gas station. Her car was found a mile away in a parking lot. For police and the woman's family nothing adds up.

"She seemed like she was OK, maybe a little nervous because she was older and going to have a baby, but other than that she seemed excited about it," said the father of the child, Jace Fellman. "I really don't know what happened, I have no clue, she just didn't come back."

"There was no forced entry in the vehicle, it was properly parked. She did leave a bag that she was going to take to the hospital with her inside the car, but there was no forced entry or anything, so it doesn't lead us to believe at this time that there is foul play," Sgt. Scott Martin of the Humble Police Department said.

Van Raub was last seen wearing black pants with a bright green hoodie.

If you have any information on her location, contact the Humble Police department at 281-446-7127.
