Lauralyn Palmer was last seen in Fall River Mills, California. This incident occurred at 4:30 p.m. on April 20, 2018. She took an unleashed dog for a walk in the woods southeast of her home, which was in the 23000 block of Cassel Fall River Road. She has never been heard from again. Her husband reported her missing two hours later.

The dog is described as a gray, black and white female Australian Cattle Dog named Lucy. It returned, uninjured and in good health but alone. She returned four days after Palmer’s disappearance. It wasn’t her dog, but belonged to someone who lived twenty miles from her home.

A month after Palmer’s disappearance, investigators stated she was missing under suspicious circumstances. Her case remains unsolved.

Lauralyn Palmer has been missing for one year and four months-sixteen months. Police are calling hers a suspicious disappearance. She went missing on her foot with a dog, reportedly not hers. The dog later was found, alive. Mrs. Palmer remains missing. Her dementia apparently, taken by itself, cannot explain what may have happened to her. So what happened to this senior citizen when or after she went on that walk in the woods? Who would have a motive to harm Lauralyn?

Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Lauralyn Palmer? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in her disappearance?
