CHINO VALLEY, AZ - Arizona authorities are searching a desert area in Wickenburg for a missing Chino Valley woman.
Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 37-year-old Jaime Andrews hasn't been seen since Sept. 4.
Her family thought she had gone to her father's ranch in La Paz County, but she never arrived.
On Sunday, a rancher found Andrews' abandoned car in a remote area west of Wickenburg known as Bullard's Wash.
Her dog was found in good condition inside the vehicle and deputies also located her purse, some clothing and a water bottle. They later found footprints in the area that trigged an air and ground search until sundown Sunday.
Authorities say there were no sign of Andrews on Monday despite a series of helicopter flyovers and search teams in vehicles, quads and on horseback.
