On Saturday, August 3, 2019, Helen Coultrup disappeared from her San Andreas apartment, presumably in her four door, silver / light blue to tan colored 2010 Toyota Yaris hatchback, CA License #6WWY181. At the time of the report, an investigation was initiated which included the issuance of a Silver Alert, a search of her residence, a search of her possible path of travel, financial records examined, as well as Helen and her vehicle were listed on multiple state and nationwide databases as a missing person.
On August 15, 2019 at about 8:10 AM, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a vehicle matching the description of Helen Coultrup’s car. A citizen recreating the area located the vehicle near Wilseyville (California) several miles off the highway on a dirt road. Calaveras County Sheriff’s Detectives, California Highway Patrol Air Unit and the Calaveras County Volunteer Search and Rescue Team (including a search dog) were dispatched to investigate and search the area. Upon arrival, they located Coultrup’s vehicle and began searching the area for Helen.
Additional searchers have been requested via the California Office of Emergency Services Law Enforcement Branch. The search effort will be coordinated with the various specially trained responding mutual aid teams.
