    CA - Chelsea King (17) Rancho Bernardo (north San Diego County) #1

    Just a bit further down the road from Bonsall and just up the road from where Danielle Van Dam lived in Scripps Ranch, a local Poway teen has gone missing in Rancho Bernardo.

    The park she is missing from is parallel to the major inland north/south freeway, next to a large nursing/retirement home, and in a neighborhood that had been hard hit by the last San Diego wildfires.

    This has been on twitter and facebook for awhile, and I've heard helicopters over the park off and on, but I wanted to wait until it was public in the news so I could include an article.


    Poway Teen Missing
    Posted: Feb 25, 2010 11:50 PM PST Updated: Feb 25, 2010 11:51 PM PST

    A search is underway late Thursday night for a missing Poway High School student. Chelsea King, 17 was reported missing just after 7 p.m.

    San Diego Police and San Diego County Sheriff's Deputies are conducting an air and ground search at Rancho Bernardo Community Park. A classmate tells News 8, King's car was found there in the parking lot and that she had planned to go running.

    Investigators say King does not have any history of running away. She is 5'5, 120 lbs with blonde hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information is asked to call police.

    A blog a friend (of Chelsea's) started stated that her car was found with all of her things, including cell phone, plus her running clothes in it. Also right at the edge of the park is an area which goes back into the Lake Hodges area. While there are many trails, there are also areas that are quite dense and brushy.

    The park itself is quite large and is always busy with sports activities on the fields, people in the dog park with their dogs, and many people walking and running. It is quite well lit, and a favorite spot of police and firemen to go train, as well. In mid afternoon before schools are out it's a bit quieter, but nearly always have many people stopping to each lunch or walk at breaks.

    Here's a link to the park's website which includes pictures.

    I'll try to head out in the light tomorrow to the park if she's still not back and see what is happening on the ground search wise. Poway and RB are very tight knit communities, so I would expect there will be a lot of public support, though I'm praying Chelsea is found before much searching is needed.

    It's also now top news on KNSD (after the Olympics) - there is a staging center set up at the park, and more than 100 sheriff deputies and volunteers.

    Chelsea is a long distance runner at Poway High and often goes there and goes running. When she didn't come home after dark her parents immediately called the sheriffs. Sheriffs have been out with the Astria helicopters and ATVs searching since getting the phone call.

    They are searching the canyon ravines beyond the park hoping that she simply fell down and got injured and can't get up, but they are very worried about her.

    It is quite cool out (especially for San Diego) - about 51 right now, only that warm because of the cloud cover...many mornings recently it's been in the low 40's, and she was in running clothes (sounds like it was another set that was in the car).

    They will be out searching overnight. Her family and friends are out there helping, as well.

    Authorities search for missing teen in Ranch Bernardo


    By Jose Luis Jiménez, UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

    Friday, February 26, 2010 at 12:06 a.m.

    RANCHO BERNARDO — Authorities are searching for a 17-year-old girl who went missing Thursday evening.

    Chelsea King, who planned on going running at Rancho Bernardo Community Park on West Bernardo Drive near Aguamiel Road, did not return to her Poway home, the Sheriff’s Department said.

    Her family contacted deputies, who used cell towers to determine her cell phone was located near the park, the Sheriff’s Department said. Deputies found the phone inside of her car near the park Thursday night and a search was started to locate the teenager.

    She is described as having blonde hair, blue eyes and a thin build. She is a member of the Poway High School cross country running team.

    Anyone with information can call the Sheriff’s Department at (858) 565-5200.

    Prayers for Chelsea, hope she is found safe soon!
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    After school on Thursday, she parked her car in the parking lot of the Rancho Bernardo Community Center on West Bernardo Drive in preparation for a run in the north Rancho Bernardo area, Caldwell said. She did not return to her locked car, according to the spokeswoman.

    I saw this last night and hoped that when I got up today she'd have been found safe. This is happening way to much!

    I just found out about Chelsea -- prayers she's found safe soon!!


    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Such a shame that parents must worry and suffer when their kids are doing GOOD things, exactly the things that a teen should feel safe to do in her own hometown after school! I was concerned that this was in a remote area, but the pictures of the park seem to show it as a well used and developed park with many types of recreation areas.

    Oh no...not another young woman missing from the San Diego area. There is definitely a predator out there. I was so sorry to see this story in our news this morning.

    I think there was another young woman attacked while jogging in this same area in December.

    I just heard about this case this morning on the local radio station. I pray that she turns up. But OhMyGooness, I have a bad feeling about this, especially after Amber DuBois.

    I'm definitely going to contact my daughter that's training for a 5K. She always runs by herself. She tells me not to worry.

    Although it was a little foggy last night, I heard the helicopter frequently and have heard searching again today, which is great. In fact, there's a helicopter overhead at the moment.

    I'm not sure how this didn't cross my mind last night, but it's only a couple of miles (literally) down the road from where Amber Dubois went missing from, as well.

    I've been forwarded the missing flier for her dozens of times this morning. I'm trying to embed the link for it above

    It's all over twitter, and local students all have it as their facebook status. Churches and schools are passing and forwarding out missing fliers about Chelsea, as well. So the good thing is especially in the Poway and RB area, there's virtually no one who isn't aware of this and keeping an eye out for her.

    This is a pretty close knit area, and there are very few of us who haven't run in that park or run or walked around Lake Hodges, so this has stunned people.
