Bob Bashara had reported his wife missing at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

"I got home about five after 8:00 and she wasn't around and I relaxed and figured she was out running an errand. As nine and nine-thirty approached, I became much more concerned and I got more people involved. I called my kids to see if they had heard from her and they hadn't. I had been calling her cell phone to find out and then as time got on I involved the police because I was concerned there might be something wrong," Bashara told 7 Action News on Thursday.
