IRVINE (CBSLA.com) — The search for a missing Irvine woman has narrowed to the San Bernardino mountains, officials said.
Lisa Cimbaluk, 36, was first reported missing Monday.
The missing woman’s snow covered vehicle was discovered Sunday in the San Bernardino mountains.
KCAL9’s Cristy Fajardo says with cold temperatures in the mountains at night, search and rescue teams didn’t waste a moment of daylight Sunday looking for Cimbaluk.
The search was called off when the sun went down.
Searchers will be back on the hunt at daybreak.
Fajardo reported that deputies and searchers concentrated their search around Fawnskin, near Big Bear.
Irvine Police have said all along that they did not believe Cimbaluk was a critical missing person.
Concern for her well-being increased when it was apparent she was out in the elements where temperatures dip into the low 20s.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone who might have seen the missing woman to contact them.
