SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) – Authorities in California say they are searching for an Arizona woman who went missing while hiking in the Mojave Desert.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office says 69-year-old Barbara Thomas, of Bullhead City, was last seen Friday wearing a black bikini, a red baseball cap and tan hiking boots with black socks.
The office says Thomas and her husband were hiking in the Mojave Desert approximately 20 miles north of the I-40 freeway when they got separated.
Temperatures in the area climbed to more than 100 degrees over the weekend and are forecast to reach triple-digit throughout the week.
Officials say Thomas does not have supplies.
