Authorities have discovered a missing California mom’s car abandoned in the middle of a bridge hundreds of miles from her home.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office said Tiffany Alma Faith Clark, 38, disappeared under “suspicious circumstances” on the evening of June 29 after last being seen by her family, according to a statement from authorities.
Her 18-year-old daughter Michaela Haight told local station KTXL she last saw her mother that evening on her way home from work.
She grew concerned the next day when she was unable to reach her mother and her phone just went to voicemail.
“I start calling around to all the hospitals, all the jails, all the mental hospitals in every county, Calaveras County, Stanislaus County, everywhere around here trying to find her because nobody has seen her,” she said.
Just a few hours later, Haight said authorities told her that her mother’s car, a black Ford Ranger, had been discovered more than 300 miles away from her home abandoned on the Martin’s Ferry Bridge—without any sign of her mother nearby.
“A neighbor who lived in the area had located a suspicious vehicle parked in the middle of the Martin’s Ferry Bridge,” Samantha Karges of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office told the station.
Officials have conducted multiple searches of the Klamath River and surrounding area but have found few signs of the Lodi resident, according to KRCR.
“What made it suspicious for us was that all of Ms. Clark’s belongings were still inside of the vehicle,” Karges told KTXL.
Clark was last seen wearing black scrubs and black Nike shoes. She’s described by the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office as 5’ 5” tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds. She has medium-length brown hair and brown eyes.
Her family says the disappearance is not like Clark.
“She’s just a wonderful, amazing, kind, sweet woman,” her daughter said through tears. “This is not like her at all.”
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact authorities.
