Posted: Updated:

Chesterfield police released new information and photographs on Friday, as they continued searching for a St. Francis Medical Center employee who hasn't been seen in more than a month. 

Chad Neuser lives in the same neighborhood as Pabon. less than a mile away he witnessed police searching through a nearby wooded area.

"I noticed in the rear parking area, a mobile command center additional police SUVs, marked and unmarked vehicles, at that moment I knew something was going on they were searching for somebody or something," Chad Neuser said. 

Still, police are still focused on the time that the car was in the shopping center and want anyone who may have seen Pabon's car to speak out. Chad Neuser says he will keep his eyes open and encourages others to do the same.

"Always keep your eyes and ears open because you never know what a cell phone picture can do or what you may have seen on a walk can do for a search," Neuser said.

Zulma Pabon was reported missing when she didn't show up for work on June 9 and has not been seen since.

Police are calling the disappearance suspicious, but at this point have not said whether or not foul play is suspected.

The 26-year-old mother was last seen leaving the office on the evening of Friday, June 6. Police believe she made it to her home on Terrace Arbor Circle near Commonwealth Center in Midlothian. Surveillance images show what police believe is her car leaving the home at 6:25 a.m. 

Around 15 minutes later, surveillance video shows the father of her child, returning to the home where they live together. Police say John Gibbs II has not been participating with detectives in the investigation.

Pabon's son is now with Gibbs at the home, according to police. Detectives say there have been no reports of domestic violence or signs of distress.

Police believe Pabon's car may have been spotted on the evening of June 7 being towed by a newer-model, white, four-door truck on Commonwealth Center Parkway around 6:15 p.m. Police are asking the driver of the truck to contact them.

With the help of the storage facilities surveillance camera Chesterfield Police were able to catch what appeared to be Zulma Pabon's car being pulled by a pickup truck.

"When Chesterfield County came to us they were interested in what we had are camera angles on Commonwealth Center Parkway we were happy to help in anyway to help piece together that the county is releasing," Facility Manager John Poss said.

The car was captured in the background of pictures taken at the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park at 14111 Drumvale Drive in Chester the next day. Police have since located her car near the park.

Police are now asking anyone who may have seen Pabon's Altima in the area of Commonwealth Center Parkway or the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park over the weekend of June 7 and 8 to call Crime Solvers. The car is a white four-door 2009 Nissan Altima with Virginia license plates JZN-1429.

If you have any information about Pabon, you are asked to call Crime Solvers at 748-0660.
