LAUREN Cho, 30, is a New Jersey native who made the move to California.
Cho was reported missing after last being seen in California's Yucca Valley.
Who is Lauren Cho?
Cho, nicknamed 'El', moved to California from New Jersey in the fall of 2020 to pursue a new life unrelated to her teaching job on the East Coast.
According to Cody Orell, the last person to allegedly have seen her, she wanted to "taste freedom", joining him on his tour bus as he made his way out west. Their journey led them to Bombay Beach, a small town on the coast.
Cho was in the process of renovating an old school bus into a food truck when she went missing.
When did she go missing?
After moving from New Jersey to California, Cho traveled to Yucca Valley where she was staying at a friend's place with Orell.
On June 28, 2021, Cho was last seen at approximately 3pm in the area around Hoopa Road and Ben Mar Trail in between Morongo Valley and Yucca Valley.
According to sheriff's reports, Orell placed the call that she went missing at 5.13pm that day. She apparently made comments about being upset and walked away on foot while Orell was inside of his tour bus.
What do rescue efforts look like?
There are seemingly no traces of Cho in or around the valley she was last seen in, leaving authorities to believe she might have hitch-hiked or caught a ride with someone in the area.
Search and rescue teams including drones, helicopters, dogs, and people on foot have been actively searching the surrounding areas for any sign of Cho.
The San Bernardino Sheriff's Department said their investigation is ongoing. Reports show the police have access to Cho's phone, computer, and car.
Have Lauren Cho's parents said anything?
Little information is available surrounding the case of Lauren Cho.A Facebook group has been created for people to share any information or sightings they may have.
According to the page, Cho's parents have been in contact with both Korean news outlets and churches along the West Coast in an effort to expand the search.
