  • Details of Disappearance
    Baker was staying with her family at the KQ Ranch Resort near State Route 79 south of Julian, California on August 26, 2001. She took a short hike every morning before her relatives awoke. Baker departed at approximately 6:00 AM that morning. Her daughter summoned authorities when Baker failed to arrive back at the camp by 10:00 AM.

    Investigators believe that Baker left the camp without a supply of water or protective clothing. The temperatures reached 90 degrees during the day with lows in the 60s during late August 2001. Authorities searched for Baker for five days, but the only evidence located was a footprint found near the camp. Dental x-rays are available.
