November 22, 2013 (El Cajon) – Anne Louise Terhune, reported missing by her family yesterday, may have been involved in a non-injury traffic collision in the Tijuana area, El Cajon Police have learned. 

“She was alone at the time of the collision but stated she was lost and provided her personal information.  She then indicated she would be home the following day and did not appear to be under any duress,” said Lt. Frank La Haye. But he added, “Terhune has not returned home and her whereabouts are unknown.”

The El Cajon Police Department is working with the San Diego County Sheriff’s International Liaison Unit to locate Terhune and determine if she needs any assistance.

Terhune was last seen November 19, when she told family she was going to the El Cajon Library at 576 Garfield AVenue, but never returned. Later that evening her vehicle was seen crossing the border into Mexico, though her family said it would be out of character for her to go to Mexico due to safety concerns.

Her vehicle is a 2004 gold Mercury Marquis four-door sedan with California license 5KL673.

Terhune, 60, is white, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighs 175 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
