APPLE VALLEY, Calif. – The partial remains of Krystie Stuart, the missing Lucerne Valley woman have been located by two hunters in the county area of Apple Valley last week.
Krystie was 29-years-old when she went missing on March 2, 2015, following a dentist appointment in the Jess Ranch area of Apple Valley. Krystie was unable to be seen by the dentist due to a preexisting medical condition and was supposed to spend the night with a friend of hers. She called to tell her that she was on her way, but she never showed up. According to Krystie’s mother, in a previous interview with a 24/7 Headline News reporter, Krystie had a history of depression. With the assistance of her physician, she decided to stop taking her medication. Soon after stopping her medication, she quickly fell back into depression.
The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office confirmed the Stuart families worst fears, the remains were confirmed to be those of their daughter. Detectives and community members have conducted numerous searches, including aviation to no avail. The investigation has been ongoing for nearly four years with few leads to follow. The cause of death is unknown at this
