Missing Yuba College student’s truck found in northern California

Gridley, Calif (KCRA) — Five days into the search for 20-year-old Alycia Yeoman and there is still no sign of her–only discoveries of two significant possessions.

First–her truck located in an orchard Monday night in Live Oak.

Farm workers had seen it abandoned for several days before the call was made to police.

The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office said Alycia’s truck went down a levee and got stuck in the mud off Pennington Road.

They found just one set of footprints leading away from the truck.

Then, a cell phone–also discovered Monday in this area by a resident–is now in the hands of investigators.

They’ll look for clues in her phone records.

The news comes as a shock to Gridley residents like Whitney Moore, who can only hope Alycia is safe. “I think it’s crazy. I don’t personally know her, but I think it’s nuts,” said Gridley.Feel bad for her dad, her parents, her family, her friends.”

The Yuba College student was last seen late Thursday night leaving a friend’s home in Yuba City.

Five days later, no sign of Alycia

As police look for clues in her disappearance Tuesday with the help of a K-9 unit–searching the area near where truck was found.

Local resident Hilda Smith said,I think, you know, when a girl disappears it’s horrible thing. You know, think about it if it was your child.”

The results of the search are unclear as we await an update from Gridley-Biggs Police. 

Alycia is described as 5’4”, weighing 115 pounds.

She has brownish-blonde hair, braces, a nose ring and a small mole near her left eye.

Police maintain there is nothing suspicious at this time and do not suspect foul play.

Alycia’s family had no comment.
