Categories: What You Missed

Update No. 3 on Page 2 is about the woman found in Angeles National Forest being in good health and on her way back to OC. Update Nos. 1-2 were about the air and ground searches this morning that led to her discovery.

ORIGINAL POST, AUG. 30, 7 A.M.: Placentia police are hoping the public can help them find a 24-year-old woman who has been missing for more than a week.

Shameca Lewis Johnson was last seen the afternoon of Aug. 20, when she left her home in the 1500 block of Sierra Bonita, according to Placentia Police Detective Corinne Loomis.

Johnson's roommate thought when she left their home that afternoon she was walking to work, but it turned out she wasn't scheduled to work that day, Loomis reportedly told City News Service.

A Cal State Long Beach graduate with a theater degree, Johnson has no car or bank account, but she did have some cash with her, according to Loomis, who also noted the woman's cell phone was turned off or inactive.

It is uncharacteristic of Johnson to be out of contact with her family, the detective noted.

Johnson is about 5-feet-3, 105 pounds with red hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black tank top, khaki pants, plastic multi-colored bracelets, a chain-mail bracelet, and a silver thumb ring.

She left her home with a tan leather wallet on a chain and a dark-colored Camelback backpack.

Anyone with more information is asked to call Detective Jason Reger at 714.993.8187.

Her friends have set up a Facebook page to share information.
