    CA - Sara Mowry, 82, Santa Ana, 13 Jan 2009




    Woman disappears, but leaves her walker behind
    Investigators say suspicious activity in a woman's financial accounts occurred before she went missing this week.

    LAGUNA NIGUEL Investigators are looking into the mysterious disappearance of an 82-year-old woman, who went missing from her home this week but left behind several personal and vital belongings.

    Details surrounding the disappearance of Sara Mowry from her home, an assisted care facility located at 25501 Camino los Padres, do not add up and authorities said they are concerned for her well-being. Investigators have also discovered inconsistencies in her personal financial accounts, making her disappearance highly suspicious, they said.

    Mowry, described as an alert and sharp woman who uses a walker, talked to her son Monday, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Her son tried to contact her Tuesday, but was unable to reach her.

    Back in her home, Mowry left behind her walker, hearing aide and medication, Amormino said.

    "It's not a case where she got up and walked away," he said.

    Mowry cannot walk without assistance, he said. She is also not suffering from any mental illnesses and was described as "very sharp" and aware.

    "This is highly suspicious," Amormino said.

    While investigating her disappearance, authorities also discovered "inconsistencies" in her financial accounts, transactions that occurred before she went missing, Amormino said. Pending the ongoing investigation, he said he could not go into details.

    Investigators are also looking to find a 2002 Toyota Tacoma truck, which is believed to be connected with her disappearance, he said. The truck has a license plate of 6WO1148.

    When asked what connection the truck had to Mowry, Amormino said he could not provide details at the time.

    Anyone with information is asked to call 866-TIP-OCSD or 866-847-6273.


    Truck linked to missing 82-year-old woman found
    A truck was found Wednesday night, but the elderly woman has still not been located, authorities say.
    The driver, an at-large narcotics parolee, was booked on unrelated charges. Authorities have not identified any suspects or persons of interest in connection with Mowry's disappearance.

    From article:

    "Authorities will resume searching through a Brea landfill today for an 82-year-old woman who disappeared from a Laguna Niguel assisted-care facility earlier this week."


    "On Wednesday, a sheriff's deputy pulled over a silver Toyota Tacoma truck believed to be linked to the disappearance in Santa Ana, which was driven by an acquaintance of Mowry's grandson."

    "More than a week after 82-year-old Sara Mowry disappeared from her Laguna Niguel home, leaving behind her walker, medication and purse, authorities said the chances of finding her alive and well are "grim."

    After reading about the demise of poor Mary Wilcox, it makes you wonder what happened to Sara Mowry and how many people are in the know or have been in the rumor mill.

    Authorities arrested 57-year-old William Baker last week on suspicion of being behind a home-flipping Ponzi scheme. That scheme, authorities said Monday, came to light as investigators looked into the baffling disappearance of Baker's 82-year-old mother.

    Baker reported his mother, Sara Mowrey, missing on Jan. 13, 2009. The search has baffled investigators, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

    The investigation that led to Baker's arrest and conviction started after he reported his mother Sara Mowrey missing in January 2009. She has not been found, and an investigation into her disappearance continues, authorities said.

    The grandson of an 82-year-old woman whose disappearance from her Laguna Niguel home stumped investigators for more than five years was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of murder, officials said...

    Investigators suspect Baker killed her that night, then disposed of her body in a nearby trash bin, Hallock said. Baker was confronted by someone when he was trying to get rid of the body, but that witness didn’t immediately report the incident to authorities at the time, Hallock said.

    Officials allege Baker tried to solicit several people in 2013 – including three undercover deputies with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department – to kill that witness.

    It's taken 6 years but I hope 2015 is the year of justice for Sara.
