As reported on Facebook by Lori Bayour: Hi all. My sister, Holly Jochum, has been missing since Sunday. She had planned to go to Big Bear to do some camping alone with her dogs but the campground was closed. The last we heard from Holly was Sunday at 4:45pm when she told us she was heading an hour and 15 mins away for the desert(Joshua Tree) and she would call when she got there and we haven’t heard from her since. By 7:30pm on Sunday her phone was off/unreachable. We filed a missing person report and alerted the police. She was suppose to return to Orange County today and never arrived or made any contact. Park Rangers are looking for her 1992 Dodge Ram Van in the Joshua Tree National Park however, she could be anywhere from Yucaipa to Joshua Tree. If you see her or have any information please contact me,Lori Skrivan, or the local police department.

    Missing NPF Administration

    Missing NPF is Missing in U.S. National Parks and Forests, and is not a federal or law enforcement agency. This website - and it’s associated social media profiles - are privately-organized and funded, based in Washington State, United States of America.

    About Missing NPF

    There is currently no centralized database for those who have gone missing in National Parks and/or Forests at the federal level.

    We have established this listing in an effort to provide a holistic measure of assistance, both to inform future search efforts and to establish an assistive resource for those who are currently living with the loss of a loved one. 

    Missing NPF supports the call for federal agencies to establish, maintain, and share a full listing of those missing in U.S. National Parks and Forests. Meanwhile, we have established our own, and seek your collaboration in providing a meaningfully-detailed source by which to expand public knowledge, identify trends, and empower future search efforts. Join us on this mission.
