Woman missing with son in California redwoods faces felony charge

The woman who went missing within four days after allegedly leaving a car accident in Mendocino County was charged with “felony, insult, or endangering the health of a child,” her young son who was with her the entire time.

An extensive search, on foot and from the air, including helicopters, drones and dogs, was launched after the discovery of a minivan on November 30, 2020, which crashed into a tree after exiting Highway 101 northward near Confusion Hill, 6 miles north of Leggett. … It severely injured a 44-year-old Sacramento man who told California Highway Patrol officers that the driver had left with her 3-year-old child after the accident.

Four days later, the woman was found nude on a highway near the crash site. Her son was at the foot of the steep embankment.

Although the woman was described as being in distress, the two suffered only minor injuries, a CHP officer said at the time. She reportedly told her rescuers that she and her son fell into the Eel River and took refuge in an abandoned marijuana camp.

Days after the woman was found, CHP said she could face threatening and felony charges for eluding the crash site, but it took a year to investigate. On Tuesday, December 14, the Mendocino County District Attorney filed a criminal charge of threatening.

The 35-year-old woman was taken to the Mendocino County Jail and released on bail on the same day, the Mendo Fever news site reported. It said that she should appear in court on January 5.

The two were found near the 98.5 mile mark on Highway 101, near the crash site.
