Missing woman's cell phone found, turned over to police

Witnesses saw Yeoman driving her green 1998 Toyota Tacoma truck from a home in Yuba City at approximately 11 p.m. on March 30. Police have confirmed that the truck, which was unoccupied, belongs to Yeoman.

Lizarraga is traveling right now on a radio tour promoting his music.

Authorities who recovered the truck said it appeared that it was driven down a levee and became mired in mud, with a single set of footprints walking away from it.

But what happened after Yeoman left Lizaragga's home is still a mystery.

Those who know Yeoman in the Gridley community of fewer than 7,000 residents joined with volunteers to search the field where her phone last pinged, at 4:33 a.m. Sunday in Yuba City. Crews used K-9's to scour the orchards and thick brush by the Feather River.

"These facts and the interviews with family, friends and investigative leads are very concerning and all resources are being utilized", the Gridley Police Department said in a press release. Investigators are now examining the cell phone records for investigative leads.

Alycia "Aly" Yeoman's truck was seen by farm workers in a Live Oak orchard for the past several days. Initially, they didn't think much of it, but then they made the connection. "What gave it away was they were talking about how she had a Dodgers sticker on the back, so it fit the description of what people put online", said Ramirez.

Law enforcement found the truck belonging to a Yuba College student who was last seen Thursday night, the Sutter County Sheriff's Office said. She is 5-foot, 4-inches tall and weighs 115 pounds.

Police say there are no credible leads of suspicious circumstances or foul play in Yeoman's disappearance at this time. A moderator for a Facebook page created to share information about the missing woman said Yeoman's family was directing all media requests to authorities.
