Ripon, CA — San Joaquin County officials are on the lookout for a 46-year-old Ripon woman missing since Wednesday afternoon.
Police say Mary Teresa Starkey was last seen negotiating the sale of a boat. Deputies say Starkey left her home in East River at about 2:30 with a man who came to her home to express interest in the boat and trailer parked in front of her house.
The man reportedly told Starkey that he didn´t have enough cash, so the two apparently left in separate cars to go to the man´s bank. Authorities say Starkey hasn´t been seen since.
Starkey is 5´ 5″ tall with brown hair and brown eyes. The man she allegedly left with is described as in his forties, clean-shaven and with a tattoo of a bird on his arm. He was reportedly wearing a leather beanie cap with a red stripe and dark blue clothing.
Starkey was last seen driving a tan 1997 Saturn sedan four-door. Anyone who may have information is advised to call the San Joaquin County Sheriff´s department.
