Blood found in Simi Valley woman's home.

A Ventura County woman is missing, and there's a lot of concern surrounding her disappearance.

Emily Castillo came home to the Simi Valley apartment she shared with her sister Rachel Thursday night to find no one there. But, there was what police called a substantial amount of blood around the apartment. And, the missing 25-year-old's keys, phone, and car were all there.

Earlier in the day, Castillo had dropped her two kids with their father.

Rachel Castillo is described as being a white female, standing 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 105 pounds with brown hair and eyes.
