    Debra Schwartz, 59, had been staying at the Pine Flat Campground.

    At about 9 a.m., authorities received a 911 call from a man identifying himself as the campground host who told authorities Schwartz did not check out of the campground as expected.

    When deputies arrived at the campsite, they found Schwartz's car, her assembled tent and various camping gear. It appeared Schwartz left the campground and did not return.

    Schwartz is described as a white female, 5 feet 4 inches, 160 pounds with green eyes and brown hair.

    The sheriff's office, assisted by the Arizona Department of Public Safety's air rescue helicopter out of Kingman, has searched the area looking for Schwartz but found no evidence of her.

    Detectives are conducting a missing person investigation, trying to learn what happened before Schwartz disappeared. Anyone with information about her location or the circumstances around her disappearance is asked to call the Coconino County Sheriff's Office at 1-800-338-7888.

    Gerry Blair with the Coconino County Sheriff's Department told 12 News the campsite host at Pine Flat Campground contacted the department at about 9:07 a.m. Friday, after he visited Swartz's campsite to check on her, since she had not paid to extend her time there. The campsite host said she was camping by herself.

    According to the Sheriff's Office, she was supposed to either check out Friday morning or pay for another day. When she never showed up, the campground host went to investigate.

    I wonder if they have spoken to other campers that were there at the time. The host should have all their info. I don't know why I find it very odd to camp alone at a structured campground. The only time I ever camped alone was when I was doing a long hike and knew I would not make it out before nightfall. I wonder if they had spoken to her friends/family and if they mentioned if she planned on a specific hike or climb that day? I have a bad feeling she got in an accident, if she got turned around, I would hope she would have found her way out by now. I wonder if she was depressed ....or a solo hiker/camper often? IMHO

    On Saturday, 40 people from the Yavapai and Coconino county search and rescue, including eight with dogs, continued to search the area by foot, including the Harding Springs and Cookstove trails. The county's detective division also is working with a contact at the ASU police department, Blair said.

    Schwartz's plans were to camp at Pine Flat Tuesday through Thursday.

    The search will continue Sunday if Schwartz is not found.

    RIP Debra. she sounded like a good person to know especially since she wrote about humor. what does bottom of a slot canyon mean?
    Find Haleigh, Maddie, Diana,
    Find Lindsey, Pearll, Kyron


    Today's forecast; severe attitude warnings possible throughout the day, scattered sarcasm showers, and a strong chance of annoyance later in the day...
