Authorities have been intensifying their efforts to locate Lauren Cho, a 30-year-old woman who disappeared three months ago, KABC-TV reported.

Cho of New Jersey was last seen leaving a home where she was staying in Yucca Valley, California, just after 5 p.m. on June 28, the San Bernadino County Sheriff’s Department said.

According to the department, Cho is an Asian woman with black hair and brown eyes. She is 5-foot-3 and was last seen wearing a yellow t-shirt and jean shorts.

“Investigators with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s, Specialized Investigations Division are assisting the Morongo Basin Station in the effort to locate Lauren Cho,” the Morongo Basin Sheriff’s Department said in a press release. “Investigators are investigating all leads and working with family and friends of Ms. Cho. Future search operations will occur as further leads develop.”

Cho was a high school music teacher in New Jersey before she quit her job and moved with her friend to California. The duo drove across the country in his tour bus, the Hi-Desert Star reported in July.

“She wanted to move from the East Coast and taste freedom,” Cody Orell told the outlet. “She quit her job and moved into the bus with me.”

Orell, who was the last to see Cho, said he walked back into the bus when she walked away after getting upset and “evaporated,” he told the Hi Desert-Star.

A sheriff’s report obtained by the publication said that she walked towards the hills between Yucca and Morongo Valley without water, food, or her cellphone. Her friends tried to search for her, but they had no luck, and that’s when they alerted authorities, according to the report.

Since she disappeared earlier this summer, authorities have been executing aerial and canine searches around her last known location, KABC-TV reported. Missing posters have also been put up throughout the area.

Cho’s is one of the growing number of cases that have gained more attention since the disappearance of Gabby Petito, as advocates called for more media coverage for missing people of color.
