Our family filed a missing person report on August 6, 2022.
Caitlyn, a Louisiana native, who had recently moved close to family members in Colorado and was employed as a technical mechanic, flew back to Houma, LA on July 31, to purchase a vehicle and then head back to Colorado to pursue her career and the opportunities for growth that were being offered to her there. She left Houma on August 4, and she kept in constant contact with her family throughout her travels as she was having difficulty with her navigation system in the vehicle and the cell service was sporadic making the use of Google mapping near impossible.
After becoming disoriented in the rural areas of Texas, Her father attempted to manually guide her to the interstate to put her on track for her safe return to Colorado. At approximately 5pm on August 5, 2022, their connection went dead and there was no communication from that point. According to WIFI/Gmail data Caitlyn was located 5 miles southwest of Bogota, TX.
