Circumstances of Disappearance

Pearcy was last seen in Redding, California, driving her dark green Ford F-150 super cab pick-up truck. She resided in Cottonwood, California at the time of her disappearance, and was driving to pick up three grandchildren for a weekend visit, but never made it. Between her home and her son's home she disappeared. Her vehicle was later located abandoned in the vicinity of Interstate 5 near Gillman, California.

She may have been seen checking into a mission in Klamath Falls, Oregon on June 19th, just one day after she disappeared. A woman who is believed to have been her, apparently went into this mission asking for food and to pray in their chapel. The mission workers claimed that she seemed "loopy" and not like an ordinary street person. Carmen then proceeded to eat and pray yet she refused to stay the night. The workers said that Carmen walked away alone. The next morning she returned for another and final meal.
