PALMDALE – Distraught family members are asking for the public’s help in locating Martha “Marti” Myers, a 59-year-old Castaic woman last seen leaving her home on August 5.
Marti was driving a grey 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer with damage to the front fender from a previous accident. She may have been traveling along the 14 Freeway towards Palmdale on August 5, between 7 p.m. and 2 a.m.
According to ABC 7, Marti called her roommate from Palmdale because her car had broken down. Her phone died and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since, ABC 7 reports.
