Investigators say that the door to the camper was left wide open, and Mattice’s personal items, including her phone and purse, were inside.

Chanda Smith was on vacation in New Orleans when she disappeared in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, June 26, the Clarion Ledger reports. The 38-year-old – who’s originally from Mississippi – was last seen around 1 a.m. on Canal Street. Smith reportedly suffers from schizophrenia and is also bipolar, and may be without her medications. While family and friends are worried about her, they say the mother of two is not someone to be scared of and they don’t want her mental health history to distract from the fact that she’s missing.
“She’s a very gentle person, and has never harmed anybody, and I don’t’ think she’s ever illustrated traits of having a harmful bone in her body,” her brother, Jonathon Stevens, told the Clarion Ledger. “She’s gentle, kind and caring. She’s a mother and she’s a humble person. Her leaving and being gone this long isn’t characteristic of her.”
