Missing woman's car found covered in snow at Big Bear

BIG BEAR, Calif. (KABC) -- The car of a woman who went missing in late December was found Sunday in Big Bear, launching a massive search.

A San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy found Lisa Cimbaluk's car covered in snow at the Woodland Trailhead in Fawnskin and ran the license plate. She was last seen on Dec. 29 and was reported missing the next day by her parents in Irvine.

"We're assuming she drove up here sometime between the 29th and 30th and are currently checking the area north of where the vehicle was located," San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy Morsch said.

Authorities searched for Cimbaluk on foot and via air for more than six hours, but did not find her. They were expected to continue the search Monday.

Anyone with information is urged to call the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department at (909) 866-0100.
