Nita Mayo was last seen at a residence in the 1100 block of Park Street in Hawthorne on the day she left for a day trip to Sonora, California. Mayo's 1997 silver Mercury Sable station wagon was found later that same day by a CalTrans worker at Donnell's Vista, a lookout point outside Sonora, California. When searching Mayo's vehicle, investigators found no evidence of foul play. Her car was found full of gas with Mayo's purse, wallet, keys and cell phone still inside. Also in the vehicle were postcards and a refrigerator magnet from the nearby Strawberry General Store. The only thing missing was her camera. Despite numerous searches of the surrounding area, no signs of Mayo have been found.
