PASO ROBLES — Paso Robles resident Nancy Colleen Woodrum, 62, went missing Saturday, May 5, at approximately 3:15 p.m. and was last seen at her home on 5800 block of El Pharo Dr. in rural Paso Robles. Family members reported Woodrum missing Saturday after they checked her residence and could not locate her after she missed an appointment on Saturday morning. She was last seen by neighbors on the afternoon of Friday, May 4. Her family had talked to her the previous night.
The Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Team was brought in Sunday morning at 8 a.m. Ground crews, along with K9s, all searched nearby locations. A CHP helicopter assisted in search operations Saturday and Sunday. Another search was conducted on Tuesday night.
“We collected evidence, talked to witness, talk to neighbors, and anyone who had any information,” Tony Cipolla, Public Information Officer with the Sheriff’s Office, said.
Woodrum owned a hair salon and was well liked by those who knew her. She was living in a studio portion of the home on the property and was renting out the main residence. A wedding party was staying there for a wedding down the road and had rented out the main house for the weekend. Woodrum’s vehicle was still on the property.
When asked if Woodrum’s disappearance is suspicious. Cipolla said, “Anytime a person vanishes it is suspicious. Until we prove otherwise or locate her, it is still a missing active case.”
Woodrum is described as a white female adult, 5’ 08” tall, 145 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
“We are still trying to locate her,” Cipolla said. “We receive a lot of tips and leads from the public and we appreciate that. We are still asking for the public’s help. If anyone had any kind of video footage, from either a home surveillance system or game cameras from last Friday night into Saturday morning in the Geneseo Road and La Panza Road area to give us a call. That may be able to help out the investigation.”
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Nancy Woodrum is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office Detective Division at (805) 781-4550.
