Friends of a Sacramento woman who has been missing in South Lake Tahoe since Monday are organizing a search effort Sunday in areas near the motel where the woman was last seen.
Pamela Suwinsky, 62, was last seen Monday afternoon after she walked away from the Motel 6 at 2375 Lake Tahoe Blvd., police said. She had identification and credit cards with her but left behind her dog, cell phone, car and purse.
Kathy Lawson, a friend of Suwinsky’s, said she is organizing an effort to find Suwinsky and welcomed volunteers who can help Sunday in the area.
“The detectives have indicated that they would like for us to canvass a few select neighborhoods – we assume around the motel where she disappeared,” Lawson said. “So they basically want us to knock on doors and see if they have any information.”
Anyone interested in helping should meet with the group at noon Sunday at the South Lake Tahoe Post Office, 1046 Al Tahoe Blvd. Volunteers will be given fliers to distribute to help in the search.
Suwinsky is described as 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing about 130 pounds, with blond hair and green eyes. She had gone to Tahoe to introduce her Newfoundland dog, Wilson, to the snow.
