Details of Disappearance

Peacy was last seen in Redding, California, driving her dark green Ford F-150 super cab pickup truck. She resided in Cottonwood, California at the time of her disappearance, and was driving to pick up her three grandchildren for a weekend visit.

Pearcy's truck was later found abandoned the vicinity of Interstate 5 near the Gillman Road exit in Gillman, California. Three weeks after her disappearance, she was seen in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where she showed up at the Klamath Falls Mission asking for food. She signed in at the mission with her real name.

Workers at the mission stated Pearcy appeared "loopy" and that she ate and prayed, but refused to spend the night. She walked away from the mission alone and appeared the next day for breakfast, but did not come after that. Pearcy has not been seen since. Her case remains unsolved. She may be homeless.
