On October 13, just before dawn, 16-year-old Karlie Lain Gusé was last seen walking down a country road close to her house in Chalfant Valley, just on the eastern side of the Sierra.
She and her partner had attended a party the night before, on a Friday, where she allegedly smoked marijuana and grew afraid and disturbed.
She requested a trip from her stepmother, Melissa, who informed the authorities that she had remained late with the upset daughter and had dozed off next to her.
Karlie was still present when Melissa Gusé awakened at 5:45 a.m., she claimed, but by the time she awoke about 90 mins later, the girl had left.
Investigators From The Mono County Sheriff’s Office
Investigators from the Mono County Sheriff’s Office located three persons who claimed to have seen Karlie go toward Highway 6, a two-lane high desert highway that links her area to Bishop, that morning.
As reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, one of them claimed a tall, slim female passed his house at 6:30 in the morning, “looking up, going to look around the sky,” despite the cold.
After searching the isolated location extensively, the sheriff’s office came up empty-handed. It has stated that there is no proof she was kidnapped.
The case received widespread media attention after publication on the “Crime Stories With Nancy Grace” podcast.
In Yerington, Nevada, Lindsay Fairley, Karlie’s mother, said she thinks her daughter consumed something stronger than cannabis the night before she vanished.
At Bishop Union High School, Karlie is a junior. She resides with her father, stepmother, and 2 younger half-brothers.
She has dark blond hair and blue eyes and is 110 pounds and 5 feet 7 inches tall. Call the Mono County Sheriff’s Office at 760-932-7549 if you have any information.
