September 10, 2013 -

The California City Police Department and Kern County Coroner’s Office have confirmed that the body found on September 1st in a remote section of California City, was 59 year-old Martha “Marti” Myers of Castaic. Myers was reported missing from her home on August 5th. California City Police received a report of a body found near a dirt road in the south-eastern section of California City. Detectives later located Myer’s 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer approximately 1 mile from her body. The vehicle appeared to have sustained damage from traveling across the rough desert terrain and had several flat tires. Detectives are continuing to work with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to try to determine how Myers ended up driving through remote roads near California City. There was no indication that foul play was involved.
