It saddens me to know of so many go missing in cases like this. Hope she is found soon. I rather like to keep family close but when certain members think they are more smarter and do things wrongly it’s bad to keep family close ..I would like to point a couple things on the little boy whom says he seen her..1 it’s posted face down with legs in air ..now just how can that be. If your face down how the heck can your legs be up in air ..unless she is like stuck in some crevice of rockery. 2 how could he point out her face if she is face down?
Now on to Johnson’s meadows I went to Google map and looked it up and well Said see a few houses out there so did the officers check with the houses who lives out there anyways.
This seems suspicions….my father was from Tulare Visalia area in fact it was a family story that my great great grandfather was some kind of guide out in those mountains and my father has mentioned of some of the lakes and places. Johnson’s Meadows was one place my dad would talk of . From the looks of this tory I suspect foul play..that is needed to keep a case open.. sure hope she is found soon. I would be thinking rockery Crevices if face down legs up a poor way to land if she walked off a Mt side or thrown by someone or something..

The story of a ghost-like “sighting” in the case of Sandra Hughes, unfortunately, yields no new leads and no new evidence. More here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Missing411Cases/permalink/810969369561638/

at a loss for words.
it’s been over a year now that she has been ‘missing’. i am her ex-husband and although we hadn’t spoken in many years, her status as missing makes me profoundly sad.
