Sonora, CA — Family members of a missing Hawthorne, Nevada woman are holding out hope that she will be located, despite a suspension in search efforts by authorities.
Tuolumne County search and rescue officials have scaled back search efforts for 64-year-old Nita Mayo who has been missing since last Monday.
Meanwhile family members along with several local residents continue to scour the area around the Donnel Vista overlook where Mayo´s car was located Wednesday evening.

Investigators are planning to focus on the car for clues today.
Anyone with information in the disappearance is urged to call the Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Department.
