Canadian mother, 10-year-old daughter go missing during trip to California

A woman from Canada and her 10-year-old daughter have gone missing after traveling to northern California, authorities say.

Audrey Rodrigue, 29, and Emily arrived in San Francisco on Saturday and checked out of a hotel in Burlingame the following day. Audrey sent her boyfriend a text message on Sunday, but he was unable to contact her after that, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

They were supposed to check into another hotel, but did not. Audrey had made a reservation for the Fish Lake Campgrounds in Humboldt County for Tuesday.

"Both park staff and other campers thought they saw Audrey and Emily there, but they left without knowing the Park Ranger's came looking for them," the sheriff's office said in a press release on Wednesday. "It is believed they might have stopped at free camp sites along the coast. The neighbors and camp staff said Audrey and Emily appeared to be happy and not in distress."

Audrey's boyfriend reported the pair missing on Monday. Investigators described both Audrey and Emily as having blonde hair and blue eyes, and it is believed Audrey was driving a dark grey 2018 Ford Focus.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts should contact the sheriff's office at (650) 363-4192.
