Deputies assigned to Rancho Mirage Police Department began investigating Rebecca’s disappearance the next afternoon, after a concerned family member reported that she had never returned to her Rancho Mirage home after leaving her friend’s house in La Quinta, Riverside Sheriff’s Sgt. Frank M. Schiavone later explained. 

Rancho Mirage PD investigators are now asking the public’s help to locate the missing woman.

“As you can imagine, this has been a very difficult time for myself and all the family,” Rebecca’s mother Sarah Modrall later said, explaining she is praying her daughter is located soon.
