Maria Loida Tice, a resident of Los Angeles County, was last seen on Saturday, February 13 between 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on the Heaton Flat trail toward the summit of Iron Mountain in the unincorporated Angels Crest area of the national forest, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) said.

The mountain is considered one of the toughest hikes within the national forest.
The LASD’s Missing Persons Unit investigators are asking for the public’s help in locating her as her family is “very concerned about her well-being.”

Tice is described as a 5’4”, 130-pound Filipina with shoulder-length brown hair. She also wears glasses. Her last worn clothing is unknown.

Search and rescue teams from across Southern California were deployed to the area last week but no further information has been released.

Anyone with insight into Tice’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact the LASD’s Missing Persons Unit at (323) 890-5500.

  1. Massey Tice (her husband now deceased) was my good friend in Santa Cruz, Ca. He would obviously want her buried next to his own gravesite, should her remains be found and properly identified. If anyone has a go fund me page for her funeral I would like to contribute to it. Massey was a solid, staunch, Christian and a great witness to me and many others most of his life. I would be honoured to contribute some funds to give her a proper Christian burial. Email my address or add a comment to where I might be able to send a small contribution. Thanks! “THE DOC”
