Human Remains Believed to be Missing Person Helen Coultrup’s Located

San Andreas, CA...On August 15, 2019, at about 8:10 AM, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a vehicle matching the description of Helen Coultrup’s car. A citizen recreating the area located the vehicle near Wilseyville (California) several miles off the highway on a dirt road. Calaveras County Sheriff’s Detectives, California Highway Patrol Air Unit and the Calaveras County Volunteer Search and Rescue Team (including a search dog) were dispatched to investigate and search the area. Upon arrival, they located Coultrup’s vehicle and began searching the area.




On August 16, 2019, The Calaveras Volunteer Search and Rescue Team, Amador County Search and Rescue, Tuolumne Search and Rescue and CARDA (California Rescue Dog Association) continued search efforts. Unfortun ately, searchers located remains believed to be Helen Coultrup. Based upon the search of the area and the conditions of the human remains, it appears as though there has been heavy animal activity involving the human remains. Helen Coultrup’s identification, clothing and other identifying items were also found in the area. The human remains and other evidence of animal activity will be sent to the Calaveras County Coroner’s Office and a California Department of Fish and Wild Life laboratory for further processing and examination. The cause of and manor of death is unknown at this time.

The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office wishes to send our condolences out to the family of Helen Coultrup. We would also like to thank everyone who aided and assisted in the search.

Sad to hear. Maybe a little too much information.

    Reminds us all out here in the forest, be aware of your surroundings. Tunnel vision is acceptable, periferical is another world. Be safe and help those in need. Perhaps your turn can be next. Kindness is unspoken.

    Very sad and I agree maybe too much detail. That being said sure would appreciate PTN giving some detailed information on the doubled down marijuana bust on Fricot City Rd. Seems like PTN is biased.

This news release is very professional and quite respectably worded. An “inquiring mind” would inevitably discover the involvement of Fish & Game, and then wonder why that agency was part of this heart breaking process (i.e. unfounded questions about poaching, perhaps, or some other lunacy, etc.). Then the rumor mill would get spinning.

Our entire community has been involved in this sad disappearance, whether boots on the ground from CCSR or the desperate prayers of newsreaders. This news release was plain, respectful, and precise. The reading public doesn’t “deserve” to know exactly what happened. However, we’ve been blessed as a community with the opportunity to understand what happened, and to help grieve with this woman’s family. Knowing which law enforcement agencies were involved helps us know how hard everyone tried for a happy ending. Let’s be respectful of that effort.

Thank heavens this poor woman isn’t lost, frightened, and suffering. What a sad ending to a full life. May her children and grandchildren find peace in the knowledge that they were loved.

      “I hope karma.....” etc.

      Here comes the lunacy.

      If you don't like the way PTN shares the news, go read it somewhere else. All news channels reported it the same way online.

"The cause of and manor of death is unknown at this time."

Did anyone proof read this before publishing it?

To you idiotic complaining snivellers:

I and many others here want our news to be true and frank. There is no need to hide the facts, or put your own opinion into it. If some can't handle the news then they should not seek it and hide under their beds.

Just report the true facts of the news, thank you.

The sad fact here is no one took her keys away. Nor did they have a caretaker for her.

    Exactly, if she had dementia then what the hell is she driving a car? The family seems to be clueless.

      Heckeling at a funeral is just bad form. Maybe try to show compassion or at least some "if you don't have anything kind to say, say nothing" action.

        She had dementia and should not have been driving. Why do you think she got disoriented and did not know where she was. It is the family's fault that she died.

Why was her car several miles off on a dirt road?
