Genevieve Kathryn Alexander
On April 4, 2013, at approximately 10:30 pm, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office initiated an investigation into the whereabouts of Genevieve Kathryn Alexander after her boyfriend reported her as being a missing person.
The boyfriend last saw Alexander walking away from the couple’s residence located at the Pomo Campground on April 4, 2013, at 3:30 pm.
Alexander was wearing a maroon fleece type of jacket, dark-colored pants and dark-colored tennis shoes at the time of her disappearance. It was suspected at the time of Alexander’s disappearance that she was having a delusional episode.
A Deputy Sheriff conducted an immediate area search of the bluffs/beaches of Sunset Way, Belinda Point, Schoefer Lane and Pacific Way. These locations were identified as being locations where Alexander frequented on occasion but the Deputy Sheriff was unable to locate Alexander.
On April 5, 2013, at approximately 9:00 am, Sheriff’s Office investigators, with the aid of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Team, initiated a further search for Alexander.
During the search, it was learned that a resident who lived adjacent to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens (18220 North Highway 1) had contacted a person trespassing on their property on April 4, 2013, at approximately 4:00 pm. The person that was trespassing matched Alexander’s physical and clothing description.
A Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Team bloodhound (K9) began a scent search from the location of the trespass scene and ended behind the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens along the bluff line at a trailhead that lead downward toward the beach.
While conducting a search of the beach, a pair was pants was found floating in the ocean a short distance out from the beach. When the pants were recovered they were identified as being the pants Alexander was wearing at the time of her disappearance.
A further search of this area was conducted by personnel from the United States Coast Guard (boat & helicopter) and the Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Team.
As of April 5, 2013 at 5:00 pm, Alexander’s current whereabouts are unknown and no further items of clothing have been recovered.
The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens for aiding in the search efforts along with the United States Coast Guard and the many volunteers of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Team.
