Officials Search for Missing Woman

Sarah Ruth Maddox, 30, is described as black, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing about 190 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes.

Riverside County Sheriff's deputies are on the search for a Rancho California woman after her family reported her missing yesterday.

The family of Sarah Ruth Maddox, 30, say they last saw her leaving her home in the 33700 block of Star Hill Street with friends at 11 p.m. on Friday, according to a release from the sheriff's department.

Authorities do not suspect foul play in her disappearance, and said she did not appear to be at risk.

Anyone with information about where Maddox might be is asked to call the Sheriff’s Southwest Station at 951-696-3000.

This is NOT Rancho California. Since 1989 it has been Temecula. Wake up Riverside Sheriffs

That's all you got out of this?? The Sheriff Dept doesn't write the articles. Try being a little smarter and blame the reporter.

It's not Rancho California, it's Temecula, and specifically the Morgan Hill area.

In the Press Enterprise. Don't blame the writer, or the Patch, the Sheriff's Dept. Reported it in a news release, and also Rancho California is a small unincorporated area. Know ya facts kids before you start slamming writers, the patch, the Sheriff's. After all who would know better then the Sheriff's who patrol it right? "Sara Ruth Maddox, 30, of Rancho California, an unincorporated neighborhood southeast of Temecula, was last seen by her family about 11 p.m. Friday leaving her home in the 33700 block of Star Hill Street with friends, the Sheriff’s Department said in a news release."

http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/temecula/temecula-headlines-index/20120501-rancho-california-family-reports-woman-missing.ece Ok, now my question is "No signs of foul play have been seen, and Maddox does not appear to be at risk, the department said." then why are we looking for her? Did she leave her husband? I do not get it :/ and I certainly hope she does not come to any harm and she is still with friends. A woman alone anywhere is NOT safe.

Because she my daughter, and she would not leave like this.

Ms. Maddox, I hope she is found safe and soon. Prayers for Sarah's safe return.
Gaylynne Reed May 03, 2012 at 05:21 AM
Please everyone please keep a look out for Sara i am her cousin and i keep in my prayers she comes or home and let us no she is ok. To much crazy stuff going on in this world. Please pray she is ok and come home.....

Lord, ok now it makes some sense. She left with friends on Friday night, it is now Thursday wee hours. I would imagine her "friends" have been interviewed by now as to when they saw her last, after leaving with her Friday night. I agree Gaylynne completely, there is way too much crazy stuff going on in this world, lets narrow it down to Southern California, and especially to young women and children. I pray to God she is found safe and get the picture out everywhere, especially San Diego, because there is alot of bad things that go on down there. Its such a transcient city with people coming and going all the time on business, military and some of the strangeness that goes along with them, and many others just part of extreme groups of one kind or another. Whereever she went someone had to have seen her at some point. Police and Newspapers do not go looking for runaways, or grown women that just leave with friends one night. Its not a priority. Having had a runaway daughter myself I personally know that Temecula police, and Cypress Police do nothing to find them, even though a under age child on their own, run away, is at RISK FROM THE MOMENT THEY RUN AWAY. You can provide lists and lists of names, numbers of contacts and 4 weeks after disappearing the police will still have not contacted one person. I hope you get results and SOON and keep on the police and papers to get her picture out there!!

What is it with all this praying to God nonsense? You have some sort of direct line of communication to the invisible man in the sky, the creator of the universe? So she won't be found if you and others don't pray; but she will if you do? What narcissim
V.W.D.S. May 03, 2012 at 03:21 PM
Lol, Stanley you are such a pessimist. Prayer unites people, and creates an energy that assists those involved. There is no doubt in my mind that prayer works. We are a universe of energy whether you see it or not, and our intentions and our thoughts definately can change the energy around us. Its far from narcissim. Its like being near a lake. If one person kicks his feet at the edge, you might get a small ripple. If two..a larger ripple. If a whole crowd of people do it, you can create a wave. Quit being so pessimistic and embrace that we are not just matter but energy as well.

Wow, new here just looking at local news. You all need to be nice.
Brenda May 03, 2012 at 04:12 PM
Usually everyone is Kae, but there are a few ***cough*** Stanley who just have to be mean for the sake of being mean I guess. Beautifully said V. Weeds. I completely agree and never did I believe this as much as when I had pneumonia and was on life support for 3 weeks, not going to make it, family was told to get rest of family here etc. Husband, daughters sent out another prayer "chain" on facebook, myspace, whatever they had access to. The next morning I made a complete turn around, my red count went back up, by afternoon they were weanng me off machines. Later that night I ate green jello fed to me by the nurse as all my motor functions were gone, and it was the best tasting Green jello I have ever had in my life. So Stanley, DO NOT EVER tell me that it is nonsense, or anyone in particular has a direct line to God. We all have a direct line, but in forces of many the energy is phenominal. Narcissim? That just isnt even worthy of responding to. When I got home after a month in the hospital, saw all the flowers, cards, emails, responses on those facebook and myspace posts, going up to people I never knew, literally a hundred!. I literally felt I had a golden circle around me at that time, feeling all the love and prayers that had went on while I was "out". IT was an overwhelming feeling, and hard to explain in words. I am the last one you want to berate for the power of prayer, the energy, the ripple affect like VW says, because I live today because of it.

KAE, welcome to the Patch. There is also a Murrieta and Meniffe Patch. If you type in Temecula Patch in your search engine, it will also bring up all the other Patch's like Camp Pendleton, and others in California. :)

Stanley, Can I ask what you do when life gets hard for you? Seems you dismiss that there is a God to make your petitions to, do you just happen to evolve and thus your life is made better? Just curious.

Believe it or not, saw the missing woman this morning walking in her neighborhood. She lives near me although I don't know her. I recognized her and put down my window an shouted something about her being the missing woman. I then called the police. The police investigated and later called me back and said she was at home. The were going to look into the situation. I wonder it wasa case of family dispute or just out with friends. I Amos curious and concerned. My children were so worried when I shouted out to her this morning. I saw two police cars and a helicopter looking for her yesterday too.
Brenda May 03, 2012 at 09:00 PM
Hope this is all correct, and she is home now. Great eyes Girlies.! Someone surely must have told her its been in the paper the last week that she is missing?
Girlies May 03, 2012 at 09:52 PM
I hope so, Brenda. I just don't know if they notified police that she was home because they didn't know when I called them this morning. It wasn't until they investigated it did they find out and notify me. She looked happy and smily when I shouted out to her this morning. I recognized those white teeth from the photo.
