A 69 year old woman was reported missing on Wednesday, February 17, but may have been gone since Monday the 15th. Her car was found at the Inspiration Point parking lot, above Emerald Bay on Friday the 19th after 4 days of heavy snowfall. Eldorado County searches looked for her with snowshoers and dogs on Saturday and TNSAR was called in to help on Sunday. Six TNSAR skiers searched down from Inspiration Point to Emerald Bay, exiting at Emerald Bay Campground and also from Bayview Scenic Lookout down to Cascade Lake. No sign was found of her.

On Saturday, February 27th, the missing person was located below Inspiration Point by searchers from Eldorado County.
