Found alive

A woman who had been reported missing in the Camp Fire has been found alive, according to the Butte County Sheriff’s Office.

A sheriff’s detective driving on Lincoln Boulevard in Oroville on Thursday (Aug. 1) spotted Wendy Carroll, 47, of Oroville, according to a press release. Carroll allegedly said she was aware she was on the missing list but didn’t contact law enforcement because she thought she had “unresolved legal issues.”

One person remains on the Camp Fire missing list—Sara Martinez-Fabila (pictured). The Sheriff’s Office says she may have been sighted after the Camp Fire, but that hasn’t been verified. Anyone with information regarding her whereabouts is asked to call 538-7671.
