LANCASTER – Sheriff’s officials have confirmed that a body found in a vehicle that plunged off Angeles Crest Highway is missing Lancaster resident Corinne Denise Sinatra.

Sinatra, 52, had been missing since the morning of Jan. 6, when she was last seen driving a white Toyota Yaris in the 3000 block of West Avenue J-4 in Lancaster. Read our previous story here.

Worried family members and loved ones posted hundreds of fliers around the Antelope Valley and organized search parties to look for Sinatra. On Friday, her friends and family held a special prayer service at Grace Chapel in Lancaster, where Sinatra was a volunteer.

Around 4 p.m. Sunday (Jan. 12), a vehicle was reportedly seen over the side on Angeles Crest Highway at mile marker 41.32, sheriff’s officials said.

The vehicle was a white Toyota registered out of Lancaster, Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s officials told the Altadena Patch.

Coroner’s investigators were called to the crash site Monday morning to retrieve a body. Hours later, sheriff’s detectives confirmed the identity of the victim.

“The victim of this fatal accident has been identified as missing person, Corinne Denise Sinatra,” Sgt. Carmen Arballo stated in a news release.

Authorities are still investigating what led to the crash, and no further information was available Monday afternoon.

    Our prayers go out to the Sinatra family. Corinne was our neighbor. Always friendly. Always had a smile on her face. She will be missed. I am so glad they have a church family who will help them get through this. If they need anything we are just next door. Again, prayers to the family.
