Of missing persons case. (That thread appears to have been deleted after it seemed to be a false alarm.)

A day before the crash, Doyle wrote a rambling status update on her Facebook page claiming that a shadowy organization known as the Illuminati was out to get her and her sons....
Three weeks earlier, the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office issued a bulletin warning law enforcement officials that the McKinleyville woman might be suicidal.
The warning went out after Doyle's mother contacted authorities saying she was concerned her daughter may harm herself or her children due to her mental problems.
The following day, August 14, Ms Doyle reached out to the sheriff's office herself and arranged a meeting with officials.
‘The deputy determined she was not having any mental health issues and she and the children were in good health,’ the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. ‘She told the deputy she was in the process of moving out [of] the area with her children and her mother was upset about that.’

On Friday, Athena Renee Doyle, 35, of McKinleyville, was scheduled to stand trial on two counts of attempted murder May 18 in Mendocino County Superior Court, according to Mendocino District Attorney Spokesman Mike Geniella.
However, a previous psychiatric evaluation determined that Doyle was mentally unfit to stand trial, and a second expert has since been appointed to evaluate her, Geniella said.
"Whether or not she is fit to stand trial is still hanging," Geniella said, who believed a trial date was set anyway "to get things moving," and have a plan in place.
Geniella said in mid-November Doyle's defense was expected to be not-guilty by reason of insanity, which ended-up being her plea in December, and that Assistant District Attorney Paul Sequeira was seeking a life commitment for Doyle if she were to be committed to a state mental health facility.
