VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Virginia State Police has issued a Critically Missing Adult Alert in the disappearance of 39-year-old Bellamy Malaki Gamboa.

The Virginia Beach mother of four was last seen at 8:30 p.m. on July 1, in the 2100 block of Carrene Drive.

Due to the uncharacteristic behavior of Bellamy being away from her infant children and not showing up to work her disappearance is considered suspicious, WTKR reported.

Investigators say Gamboa is believed to have been abducted and is in danger.

Bellamy as described as an Asian woman who is 5’1″ and weighs approximately 135 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair. She has a tattoo of a band of roses on her right arm and “Bellamy” tattooed on her right ankle.

Bellamy’s 2005 Gold four door Ford Focus was located on July 3, 2018 parked next to a dumpster in the 5800 block of Pickering Street.

“She needs to be home with her babies, you know,” said Tiffany Hazley, a friend. “This is just not really making a lot of sense right now.”

Hazley says it’s completely unlike Gamboa to just disappear.

“It’s not anything that she would do to jeopardize the situation where she would not be here to watch her older children grow up or her younger kids grow up,” she said.

Anyone with information regarding Bellamy’s location or information regarding her car should call Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
