Sorry to hear. You have reported this, correct? Do you have a more specific area, Grand Canyon is a large area.

Car rental?
Credit Card/Debit/cell phone GPS activity? (Likely need L.E. for leverage)
She use facebook, etc?

No recent Facebook activity but was active prior to missing.
and if she still in the canyon they'll be no card activity but that is something to consider. Thanks!

@MarcyBeta

Hi there- I was surprised to see when I opened the picture that it was someone who looked familiar. Diana sat behind me on the 6:15pm Arizona Shuttle from Maswik Lodge at Grand Canyon to Flagstaff on Friday, April 1st. She got dropped off at the Amtrak station. She was wearing the purple jacket in the photo.

I wasn't sure my memory was serving me right so I called Arizona Shuttle and they confirmed the name.

Hope this helps to find her!

Based on Sirena's information, it doesn't sound like she was at the Grand Canyon on April 2 (as the flyer suggests), but rather had left the GC for Flagtstaff and on a train to somewhere else on April 1. (?)

It'd be easier if she was still at the Canyon! Once you throw a city into the mix... I wish for a positive outcome.

Yeah it seems clear to me what Sirena meant.

But apparently the family/friends didn't understand Sirena saw her LEAVING the Grand Canyon area on April 1, and she called and confirmed it with Arizona Shuttle. I saw on another page that they are still trying to get the Park to look for her there.

They ought to be interviewing the Arizona Shuttle driver instead. And just because she was dropped off at Amtrak in Flagstaff doesn't mean she took the train. That is the only place you CAN be dropped off by AZ Shuttle service, as far as I know. I've used the Shuttle before and you had to catch it at the Amtrak station. From Amtrak station you can walk to lodgings in Flagstaff, of course. You can also catch a Greyhound in Flagstaff. Lots of possibilities.

Yes, if Arizona Shuttle has confirmed, search materials should describer her as last seen at Flagstaff Amtrak Station 4/1. Hopefully someone has spoken to the driver.
