IDYLLWILD, Calif. (KABC) -- Over the past five months, several people have gone missing after being last seen in the mountain communities near Idyllwild but the individuals have no obvious connection to each other. It's been one month since 73-year-old Rosario Garcia went missing after driving away from her Hemet home. "Nobody has seen her, we've made so many filers. We have updated the fliers so that way people know we are still looking for her," said Garcia's daughter, Margarita Zavala. Two days after Garcia went missing, her silver Nissan Altima was discovered stuck on a rock along the Sawmill trailhead near Idyllwild. The Riverside County Sheriff's Department conducted a search of the area but no other traces of her have been found. Zavala said her mother suffers from dementia and doesn't believe her mother drove her car to that location. She added that her mother was on her way to visit a relative on the day she went missing.
