A Reno woman has been missing for a week after leaving her car to take photos while visiting Hoover Dam.
Gayle Stewart, 64, was last seen in the Bypass Bridge parking lot on March 14, rangers in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area say.
She was not carrying her phone, ID, or jacket, valet investigators say.
Last month, Stewart was in the news after being rescued from a steep slope on Reno’s western edge. In that incident, she disappeared from her home in the Caughlin Ranch neighborhood on the morning of February 14.
Twelve hours later, a friend of her son who joined the search spotted her clinging to a tree about 300 feet below a road, the Reno Fire Department said. Rescuers used a rope system to get them to safety. She was cold but unharmed, the fire department report said.
Lake Mead park investigators are asking that leads on their whereabouts be reported to 888-653-0009 or go.nps.gov/SubmitATip.
Stewart is 5ft 8 and 125lbs with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last spotted in a black long sleeve shirt, black leggings and black shoes.
