(Newser) – Friends and family are searching for a missing mother of three who was reportedly last seen leaving a Super Bowl party in California 12 days ago. Though CBS Sacramento initially reported Ashley Holloway vanished while walking her dog and the dog returned home without her, the Stockton Record now reports Holloway—who turns 31 on Saturday—was last seen leaving a Super Bowl party three blocks from her Stockton home around 8pm on Feb. 4, and she was alone. "She was going to be my designated driver, but she walked home," Holloway's longtime boyfriend, 39-year-old Albert Garcia, said Wednesday. Though Holloway was rarely without her Chihuahua, "she brought the dog inside, talked to my son, then left," Garcia says. "Nobody's seen her since."

Noting Holloway's car and belongings remain at home, Garcia says concerned parties have been putting posters about the disappearance around their neighborhood. One odd detail: A store clerk says a stranger ripped down a poster at his store, saying of Holloway, "Don't worry about her. She's safe." Yet friends and family say it's not like Holloway to be out of touch. She "did everything" for her three daughters, ages 9, 13, and 16, her mother tells the Record. "She's not the type of person who would have left them." A rep says police are "taking the appropriate steps in trying to find her," but Holloway "has not come across our radar," per the Record. She's described as 5'4" and 160 pounds with long brown hair and a scar on her chin, per a missing persons website. She was last seen in a black hoodie and blue jeans.
