The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office has joined in the search for a woman reported missing in northern Minnesota. 

Wahbinmigisi "Pennie" Robertson was reported missing by family members to the Fond du Lac Police Department on May 28, having last been seen on Mahnomen Road in Cloquet four days earlier (May 24). 

While her family and friends searched for her, they also contacted local media and used social media to expand their reach to alert people of Robertson's disappearance. That led to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office hearing about the case, and they've since joined in the investigation alongside Fond du Lac PD. 

Robertson, 31, wears prescription glasses and has a tattoo of "Jeremy" on her neck, a large scar on her neck and other tattoos on her right clavicle and left middle finger. 

Anyone with information that could help locate Robertson is asked to call 911 or the sheriff's office at 218-336-4350.
