Crystal McCarthy Missing: Help find a missing 37-year-old woman

The Napa Police Department is actively investigating the missing person case of 37-year-old Crystal McCarthy who was reported missing Tuesday morning after her boyfriend told police that he had last seen and talked to her the night before, at their home in the 500 block of Lincoln Avenue, according to police Sgt. Pete Piersig.

The boyfriend said he was working Monday evening and learned Crystal was not home when he returned shortly after midnight.

This incident is extremely worrisome to the family as they said it’s not in her character to lose contact with family or friends.

Police detectives reported no activity on McCarthy’s bank accounts, and her cellphone was in her house. Crystal also did not show up for work at a downtown business, and family and friends had not heard from her as of 3:45 p.m. Saturday, Piersig said.

Heavy rain was falling Monday night in the late stages of a storm that dumped upwards of 4 inches over much of the Napa Valley and the Napa River tide was high around the time McCarthy was last seen, according to police, who said Crystal may have gone into the river and been swept away.

Detectives have walked the Napa Riverbanks since her disappearance, and a California Highway Patrol Air Operations crew checked the river area Thursday during a spate of clear weather.
