A clerk at the Circle K stated he saw two white males with sandy hair in the parking lot while Schneider made calls from the phone. Between 5 and 6 AM that same morning, a Riverside county sheriff found Schneider's car - a brown and white 1974 Toyota Celica California Lic # 018POF - on fire near the intersection of Van Buren Blvd and Doolittle Ave. The area was searched and no traces of Patti were found.
