Remains discovered in the search for a woman who went missing following an argument with friends at an Airbnb.
In the search for Lauren Cho, who vanished in June after leaving an Airbnb she was sharing with friends in a condition of obvious “mental distress,” police have discovered human remains.
During the search for a missing 30-year-old woman who vanished after an argument with friends at an Airbnb, human remains were purportedly discovered.
Lauren Cho has been missing since June 28, when she was last seen in Yucca Valley, California.
She was last seen wearing a yellow blouse and jean shorts and had a “mushroom” on her lower leg/ankle, a “lamb” on her shoulder, “No Face” on her inner arm, above the elbow, “Ten Commandments,” and a “Medusa” on her thigh.
Cho was said to have left her Airbnb rental on the Benmar Trail in Yucca Valley, about a half-hour drive from Palm Beach, around 5 p.m.
Cho walked out of the lodging where she was staying with friends after becoming “upset” over an undisclosed issue, according to a spokesperson for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, Mara Rodriguez.
Lauren’s ex-boyfriend Cody Orell, who is reported to be the last person to see her, stated she wanted to “experience freedom” by accompanying him on his tour bus.
Sheriff’s papers, according to the Sun, state that Orell reported herself missing at 5.13 p.m. that day, implying that she was in “mental distress.”
According to the Independent, search attempts in July failed to locate her, despite the use of planes and police dogs in aerial and ground scans that yielded no results.
