Original story: DUNSMUIR, Calif. — The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office and Search and Rescue crews are looking for a Dunsmuir woman who hasn’t been seen since Friday.
According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, Rosemarie “Marie” McNeal’s disappearance is considered suspicious.
“We are very concerned about Marie’s welfare, based on the duration of [her] absence and the fact there are some suspicious circumstances surrounding her disappearance,” Sheriff Lopey said in a press release Monday, “Our detectives, deputies, and SAR personnel are working hard to locate her but we need anyone with information about Marie’s whereabouts to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office.”
McNeal was last seen January 4th, 2019 walking in the Maple Street area of the Carrick Edition which is outside of Weed. A dark blue mini-van with Oregon license plates was located in the Carrick Edition and the sheriff’s office says it may be associated with McNeal or people she knows.
