Police, family members, and friends are looking for a missing Yuba College student whose cell phone and truck were found mysteriously abandoned in an orchard.
Yeoman, 20, was last seen on Thursday, March 30, and friends say it’s not like her to suddenly stop communicating, although authorities have not found evidence of foul play, reported Fox40.

Fox40 reported that Yeoman’s cell phone was eventually found “in the same general area as her truck.”
3. Authorities Found Yeoman’s Truck With a Single Set of Footprints Leading From It
Even more mysterious: When authorities located Yeoman’s truck in an orchard, a single set of footprints was leading from it, according to People Magazine. Authorities have not yet if those footprints match Yeoman.
Authorities said it appeared that the truck “was driven down a levee and became mired in mud, with a single set of footprints walking away from it,” reported People.
Farm workers said the truck had been in the Live Oak orchard for several days and hadn’t been moved, according to KCRA-TV.

The Facebook page created by Yeoman’s loved ones has been posting updates in the case. “As you already know the truck was found.
