This week for the Missing Person Wednesday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of Dylan Shae Yancey. Dylan is classified as an endangered missing person. She has been missing since January 5th, 2021, and was last seen in Vista, California.

Dylan was born on July 23rd, 1991, and was 28 years old when she went missing. She is described as a white female, 5’5”, 130 lbs, long thick wavy dark brown hair, and hazel-greenish brown eyes. Dylan has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. She has a jellyfish tattoo on one shoulder, an octopus on the other shoulder, Japanese cherry blossoms on her inner forearm, and a feather on her ribs.

Dylan has been staying at a women’s shelter in Vista, California. She had checked out one night to go to the store and has not been seen or heard from since.

If you have any information on Dylan or her disappearance, please contact Detective Daniel Follosco of the San Diego County Sheriff Department by phone at (760) 940-4908 or by email at: [email protected]. Please make sure to reference case number 20155142.

Tomorrow for the Writing Thursday feature, I am presenting an original scene. Next week for the Missing Person Wednesday feature, I am highlighting the missing person’s case of John Louis Zawerucha. Until then keep sleuthing the cases; Nerd out!

  1. Hello, my name is Gina Brewer, I’m Dylan Shae Yancey’s mom. If you get any tips or sightings would you please let me know. It has been two years since I have heard my daughters voice and would love to know she is alive and safe. Tho the Lenore time that goes by makes me lose a little more hope. She has a mom, a sister and an 11 year old daughter who would just like to know she is ok. She has a home here if she would like to come home. I am not sure she even remembers this. Thank you for any info anyone may want to share.

      1. Thank you. My youngest daughter and myself were asked to submit dna, which we did last May, just in case she is found. At this point we, at least, have hope. There is a very ‘true crime’ story here. We just do not know the ending as of yet.
