Her Jeep was found parked at Salt Pond Bay on Friday afternoon. All of her belongings are still in the rental unit.

Schumann, who resides in Louisville, Kentucky, has been described as tall and athletic with brown hair. She arrived on St. John on Sunday, Sep. 15. This is not her first visit to the island.
