Details of Disappearance

Roy was last seen in Fallbrook, California at 1:30 p.m. on November 3, 2021. After a minor argument with her husband at their home in the 900 block of Woodcreek Road, she left on foot angrily, never returned and has never been heard from again.

A man who knows her saw her walking north on Main Avenue near Elder Street later that afternoon. Tracking dogs traced her scent to that location, then lost the trail. Other people reported seeing her in the local area in the days after her disappearance. An extensive search turned up no indication of Roy's whereabouts, however.

She had wandered away once before and been reported missing, but was found safe that same day. Her case remains unsolved.
