(Former RA at Bruce..)
The family of a woman who hasn't been seen or heard from in nearly a week is fearing the worst.
Jessica Birge, 25, was last seen getting into her car in the parking lot of the Gruene Outpost River Lodge in New Braunfels at about 10 p.m. last Saturday.
"I knew something was wrong when she didn't come home," Birge's mother, Cindy Waechter, said.
Birge met up with some old friends last weekend and spent the day at the Comal River.
"They spent the afternoon tubing, and then they went out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant in New Braunfels," Waechter said.
Waechter said Birge was last seen at the lodge, then vanished Saturday night.
"My daughter got in her car to come home, and that was the last that anybody has seen of her or heard of her," Waechter said.
Birge, a college student, was last seen wearing a pink bikini. She has a scroll tattoo on the back of her neck.
"I just believe for whatever reason, she's unable to contact me," Waechter said.
Birge drives a dark green 2001 Suzuki sport utility vehicle with Texas license plate number K99 RNX.
"So if anybody sees that car, I'd be very grateful if you can contact either the Heidi Search Center or the Comal County Sheriff," Waechter said.
