SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — Santa Rosa police and the Napa County Sheriff’s Office are asking the public’s help in finding a woman who has been missing for 11 days.
Eve Garcia de Diaz, 48, was last seen by her husband on Aug. 17 in a turnout on state Highway 29 just north of Robert Louis Stevenson State Park in Napa County, Santa Rosa police Sgt. John Cregan said.
The couple was driving to the Twin Pines Casino in Lake County when they had an argument and Garcia de Diaz got out of the car at the Highway 29 turnout, Cregan said.
The husband returned to the turnout a short time later and couldn’t find Garcia de Diaz, Cregan said. Witnesses also saw her in the vehicle turn-out, Cregan said. Her husband reported her missing on Aug. 20, Cregan said.
It’s unknown if Garcia de Diaz got a ride from a passing motorist or wandered away in the nearby wooded area, Cregan said.
She is Hispanic, 5 feet 1 inch, 140 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a brown sweater, black leather skirt and high heel shoes.
A large search and rescue operation on Wednesday extensively searched the area where Garcia de Diaz was last seen but found no signs of her, Cregan said.
Anyone who saw her on Highway 29 or knows her whereabouts is asked to immediately call the Napa County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 257-9911.
