SANTA YSABEL (CNS) - A search-and-rescue team fanned out through fields and ravines near Santa Ysabel Indian Reservation Friday in an effort to find a woman who went missing in the rural area.
Patricia McGinn, 63, parked her pickup truck in the 4800 block of Mountainbrook Road in Santa Ysabel about 11:30 a.m. and wandered off, sheriff's spokeswoman Melissa Aquino said.
Witnesses described McGinn as seemingly disoriented when she walked away from her vehicle, according to Aquino.
About a dozen members of a sheriff's volunteer search team spent the afternoon looking for McGinn, who is white, 5-foot-8 and roughly 135 pounds, with gray hair and blue eyes. She was wearing dark-blue pants and a light-blue shirt when she went missing.
A California Highway Patrol officer was assisting in the search.
Anyone who spots a woman matching McGinn's description was asked to call sheriff's communications at (858) 565-5200.
