Reward offered in case of long-missing Pollock Pines woman

missing.jpgThe El Dorado County Sheriff's office said a $10,000 reward is being offered to find a woman who has not been heard from in more than a year.

Sara Fawcett, (pictured) a Placerville Wal-Mart employee, called in sick Sept. 22, 2011. She was last seen or heard from the next morning, according to a missing person's bulletin.

The investigation into her disappearance continues. Her family is offering the reward.

Fawcett, 53, was reported missing by her father after she did not return home after several days.

Fawcett, who did not own a vehicle, usually borrowed her father's car, but the vehicle was not taken by the woman. Her belongings were also not taken from her residence on the family's Pollock Pines property.

At the time of her disappearance, the Sheriff's Department said it is unlike Fawcett to leave her home without her purse and cell phone.

She is described as 5 feet 1 inch tall, about 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Paul Hadjes at (530) 642-4713.
