CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- The sister of a Chesterfield mother and nurse who vanished more than a month ago is scheduled to speak to the media on Monday to raise awareness about the case.

However, investigators said it is unlikely they will have any new information about the search for 26-year-old Zulma Pabon.

Pabon was last seen June 6 and was reported missing several days later when she didn't show up for work at St. Francis Hospital.

Police said Pabon shared a home with the father of her child, John Gibbs II.

Officers revealed in a Friday morning news conference that Gibbs is not cooperating in the investigation – and was seen on camera returning to their home the day after Pabon went missing.

In one of the photos, Gibbs is spotted returning to the couple's Terrace Arbor Circle home about 6:39 a.m. the morning of Saturday, June 7. He was alone. Pabon’s white 2009 Nissan Altima was seen leaving the home the couple shared about 15 minutes before Gibbs was captured on a neighbor’s security camera returning to the house.

Officers pleaded with the public and released surveillance photos they hope can garner new clues.

Pabon was last seen Friday, June 6 when she left work at St. Francis Medical Center. She is a nurse at the hospital. Co-workers reported Pabon missing when she failed to show up for work on Monday, June 9.

Pabon’s Nissan was located about 10 days after her disappearance.

The car was found in the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park off Jeff Davis Highway, some 16 miles from Pabon’s Midlothian home. There was no sign of Pabon.

“Police are asking anyone who was in the area of Commonwealth Center Parkway between the morning of Saturday, June 7, and the afternoon of Sunday, June 8, and may have seen Pabon’s vehicle to contact police immediately,” police said. “Investigators are also asking anyone who was in the area of Greenleigh Mobile Home Park on Saturday, June 7, or Sunday, June 8, and may have seen Pabon’s vehicle being parked, driven or towed to call police immediately.”

Pabon is described as a Hispanic female, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 145 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
