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, 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. 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.
Mowry cannot walk without assistance
. She is also not
suffering from any mental illnesses and was described as "very sharp" and aware.
"This is highly suspicious," Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department 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.
