On Friday, April 20, 2018, Lyn Palmer, 71, from Fall River Mills, California told her husband she was taking the dog out for a walk, and never returned.  Bob Palmer, Lyn’s husband went out to look for her.  He couldn’t find her nor the dog, so he reported her missing.

Shasta County Sheriff’s Office’s Search and Rescue team began searching for Lyn.  The California Highway Patrol used a helicopter, horses and dogs to search for Lyn over the next few days. The scent dog went as far as the main road and lost Lyn’s sent.

Dog Returns

On day four, the dog returned home alone.

“Suddenly, the missing dog came back on day four,” Dave, Lyn’s son told Dateline. “They immediately brought her into the house. There was food and water for her, and she went and drank some water, but it was weird — because she didn’t eat any of the food.”

They tried to see if the dog would lead them to Lyn, but she did not.  They did take samples from the dog’s hair to see where she had been.


Lyn Palmer is described as being 5’2” tall and weighing about 140 lbs. She has gray hair and wears thick glasses.

If you have any information on Lyn’s disappearance, please call the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at (530)-245-6540.

Since you’re here

I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share.  I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
