FERNLEY, NV — Officials are investigating the possible kidnapping and suspicious disappearance of an 18-year-old woman last seen Saturday at a Nevada Walmart.
Lyon County Sheriff’s Office says Naomi Irion disappeared from a Fernley, Nevada, Walmart parking lot around 5 a.m. on March 12.
A local ABC station, KOLO, reports surveillance video from the parking lot shows an individual walking from a nearby homeless camp before getting into Irion’s vehicle. The vehicle then reportedly takes off with Irion in the passenger seat.
On Wednesday, officials said her vehicle has since been located in an industrial area nearby and it is being forensically analyzed.
Officials are now looking into the possibility the suspect in her disappearance may be driving a dark-colored 2020 or newer Chevrolet 2500 High Country four-door pickup truck. The driver of the truck is believed to have “a direct connection to her disappearance and her current whereabouts,” sheriff’s officials say.
