Sarah Alarid vanished on New Year's Day after attending a New Year's Eve party at a friend's home in Canyon Country. It's been reported that she argued with her boyfriend when she was last seen leaving in her 2002 silver Ford Focus. Her case is becoming a high profile one, but the media coverage of it isn't heavy enough. Is this because of the lack of details in her disappearance?
One of the last updates in the woman's case involves that revelation about the fight she had with her boyfriend. While it's not clarified in media reports, some who have commented on a post made on Case to Case say that their argument has nothing to do with her disappearance -- and that her boyfriend (who remains unidentified) has been cooperative and active in the search for her. It probably doesn't need to be repeated, but statistically "intimates" are more likely responsible for crimes against women than strangers. And there are plenty of cases where the prime suspect participated in searches for a missing person. An example of this could be the man accused of killing Gabrielle Swainson. He handed out flyers and aided in volunteer searches for the missing cheerleader.
As far as investigative updates go, there are no clues in the search for Sarah Alarid. Both she and her vehicle have yet to be found, which could indicate a number of things. She could very well be somewhere on her own, avoiding her loved ones voluntarily. She could have driven away somewhere unknown or even left the state of California. Though this scenario is highly unlikely. She could have gotten into a car accident off the road somewhere. Though the weather in Santa Clarita hasn't really been the type that would allot for this type of scenario. It's highly likely that this young woman was victimized and both she and her car are hidden. It's been over a week since she vanished, and no traces of her and her vehicle are in sight.
Officials have their work cut out for them with this case.
