Sonora, CA — Authorities are on the lookout for a 64-year-old woman from Hawthorne, Nevada missing since Monday.
George Ruckman of the Tuolumne County Sheriff´s department says Nita Mayo told family members that she was going through Sonora Pass to a “village” at about 10:00 Monday morning. Authorities say it is unclear what village she was talking about.
The Sheriff´s Department was notified at about 7:30 Tuesday night that Mayo had failed to show up for work.
Ruckman says Mayo´s car was towed to Sonora after it was discovered at the Donnel Vista overlook on Highway 108.
Ruckman says search crews scoured the area yesterday but turned up nothing. He says searchers are pulling back today to determine their next course of action which may include the use of dog teams.
A family member says the description of the clothing Mayo was wearing when she disappeared is uncertain since it appears that Mayo changed her clothes before she left.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Department.
