• MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT PART 4:

      Written by Chandler Vaughn

    MOJAVE DESERT, Calif.– Since the year 2000, disturbing numbers of women have disappeared or have been found murdered in southern California’s desert regions.

    MISSING GIRLS OF THE DESERT- The list below is limited to the years 2000-2010. San Bernardino and Riverside Counties are included. Most of the following women were found off of California’s famous Route 66, I-15,  or in the open desert.

    (Left column: Year victim disappeared)

    1. 2000 Diana Raquel Rojas-Missing. (Remains may be in Ridgecrest).
    2. 2000 Kathryn Barrett- Body found 2008. Phelan, Ca.
    3. 2001 Charlotte Mower-Body found 2003. Body I.D. 2013. Needles, Ca. Rt.66
    4. 2002 Kristina Garcia-Body found near Fort Irwin off I-15. Barstow, Ca.
    5. 2002 “Wild Road Jane Doe 13-02”-Body found off I-15. Helendale, Ca. Rt 66.
    6. 2003 Christina Battin-Missing. Thousand Palms, Ca.
    7. 2003 Jodi Brewer-Torso found off I-15, Cima Road, San Bern Co, Ca.
    8. 2004 April Pitzer-Missing. Newberry Springs, Ca. Rt 66

    11. 2006 Maureen Fields-Missing from Nevada. Car found in California.
    12. 2010 “San Bernardino Jane Doe(2010)”- Head in backpack I-15 Barstow, Ca.
    13. 2010 Zzyzx Road Burned Remains found, Baker, Ca. off I-15.

    This is a very short example of the missing and murdered women of the California desert. There are simply to many (in this region) to ever make this list complete.

    • Women killed in their own homes, too many to list.
    • Unidentified sets of human remains found in the desert (by number), too many to list.

    I will continue to add to this list until the missing are found, or justice is served.

    True Love Never Dies.

    FORTUNA, Calif – In May 2015, a human skull found along the Eel River near Fortuna was determined to be 23 year-old Danielle Bertolini, citizen of Maine. Danielle had been missing since Feb. 10, 2014. Danielle’s death is being investigated as a homicide.

    Danielle Bertolini’s case may be related to the disappearance of another young woman, 38 year-old Sheila Franks, who was last seen Jan. 11, 2014, just weeks before Danielle vanished.

    Fortuna Police, as well as Humboldt Co. Sheriff’s Dept. believe both women were last seen with the same person of interest, a 44 year-old Fortuna man, who remains nameless as the investigation continues.

    Sheila Franks has never been found.

    HUMBOLDT CO. SHERIFF- If you have any information relating to either case, Danielle Bertolini or Sheila Franks, please call Humboldt Co. Sheriff at 707-445-7251 or the Anonymous Tip Line at 707-268-2539.

    True Crime California offers deep sympathy to the family of Danielle Bertolini and continued hope and strength to the family of Sheila Franks.

    To Danielle Bertolini’s Mother…Excellent Job. I can’t think of a more difficult task to be completed in one’s lifetime: to find your child’s remains, yourself.  Truly, this is an example of a Mother’s full measure of devotion to her child. True Excellence. TRUE LOVE. I wish your tenacity to all Moms who’s children are missing. True Love Never Dies.

    Samuel Pharis  Written by Chandler Vaughn

    OLIVEHURST, Calif. – Samuel Pharis, 21, was reported missing on June 13, 2013. Three days later, his Ford Bronco was found in the Feather River bottom off Island Road in Olivehurst, California. The truck was locked but Sam’s cell phone and belongings were still inside.

    Yuba County Sheriff Search and Rescue combed the area with dogs and hundreds of volunteers. Aerial searches were conducted of both water and land but Samuel could not be located.

    SAMUEL PHARIS MISSING: Sadly, Samuel Pharis was never seen again. It has been said that Sam’s family and friends do not believe he would have committed suicide, however, they remain suspicious that he may have met with foul play.

    Sam was known to be a good kid who would not voluntarily lose contact with his family. He is missed and loved by many.

  • Missing Girls of Shasta County

    Comments Off on Missing Girls of Shasta County
    April 12, 2014 /  California Missing Persons

    Shasta CaShasta County, California.

    Since 2011, a disturbing number of young females have vanished from Shasta County and it’s surrounding areas.

    2011: Genevieve Methany (20), Alexandria Miller Williams (21).

    2012: Heather Cameron (28), Amanda Arney (15).

    2013: Elise Marie Swigart (17), Michelle Elizabeth Gadson (18), Teshena Rae Erwin (16), Halle Autumn Baker, (16), Kayla Dawn Rae Gutierres (15), Kalyn Renee Schmitz (17).

    Many of these missing females have been classified as “runaways”.  Sadly, as soon as the word “runaway” or “homeless”  is mentioned, the alarm bells stop. In reality, runaway or homeless females are at greater risk and should be pursued as missing persons in the same manner as abducted children, with fervency.  Note: To a sexual predator or sex trafficker, a runaway or homeless female is a target. Please keep a look out for these young women and help bring them home safely.

    True Love Never Dies.

    If you have information on the whereabouts of anyone listed above please contact: Shasta County Sheriff’s Office: 530-245-6000.  Redding Police: Investigations Unit: 530-225-4214

Susan’s empty wallet was also located after being returned to Starbucks in the same shopping center, around 8 am, by a female jogger. The jogger was later questioned but didn’t have any details to add to the investigation.
