REDDING, Calif. - Indigenous women gathered in Redding on Friday to bring awareness to the mysterious disappearance of a tribal member.

Jessica Michelle Nicole Willison was last seen at the Redding area bus transit center in downtown two months ago. 

Her car was found in Old Shasta with her jewelry and keys inside. 

Members of the various tribes that attended said they believe it could be a case of domestic violence. 

"I found out a lot of things about their relationship after the fact," said Shantelle Willison, Jessica's sister. "And I know there was violence and I know there was ugliness." 

The group is now working to hold a bigger event in Redding in hopes of finding Willison. There is no word yet on when that will be held.
