WAIPAHU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Nearly one year after a Waipahu mother of three vanished police are again asking the public for help.

Loida Wideman was last seen leaving her home, on her way to a Kapolei care home where she worked as a nurse. The 39-year-old had three young children at home.

Her car was found abandoned in Pearl City a few days later.

"We've had no leads in the one year and again we are asking for anyone with information about her disappearance," said Sgt. Kim Buffett of Honolulu CrimeStoppers.

Wideman's ex husband, Lonnell, was arrested two days after her disappearance on a parole violation tied to an unrelated charge.

Police have not named him as a suspect in this case.
