It has been more than 2 years now since California teen Karlie Guse got missed on the early morning of October 13, 2018 from Mono County and investigators tell they are no closer to finding her up till now.
During a press conference, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office declared that inquiries into Karlie Guse disappearance will resume until they get a clue. Still, they have had no viable leads or clues that have headed to her spot.
Mono County Sheriff Ingrid Braud stated the case continues a missing person investigation but officials are “considering every possibility.”
“We are no closer to finding Karlie,” Braun said. “Should this develop into a crime, we do not want our investigation to be jeopardized in any way. Therefore, we will not release any information about what investigative actions have taken place.”
Karlie Guse mother, Lindsay Fairley, who took part in the press conference, told that there is not a single day that passes by that she does not recall about her daughter. Karlie Guse father, Zac Gusé, and stepmother, Melissa Gusé, were also present.
Lindsay recalled her memory with CrimeOnline that she has perpetually had a friendly relationship with her daughter Karlie Guse, who was residing with her father and stepmother when she lost.
Lindsay said she has physical custody of Karlie Guse, but when Lindsay moved, her daughter stayed back at her father’s residence in Mono County to visit the high school with her friends.
Sheriff Braun stated that the parents have been supportive during the inquiry, including stepmother Melissa, reportedly the last person to see Karlie Guse before she disappeared.
“It was exactly one year ago today that I received your last text, not knowing it would be the last time I heard from you,” Lindsay said, directing a letter she had written to Karlie. “Two days after that I got a call that made this whole world go dark: the news of that my sweet rainbow baby had gone missing. I have so many questions, Karlie! What happened to you, honey? Where are you?”
What Happened Earlier:
As Fox Newsreported earlier, the events surrounding her disappearance are very perplexing. Karlie Guse is supposed to have disappeared between the hours of around 5:45 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Melissa Gusé earlier mentioned on CrimeOnline that she picked up Karlie the night earlier in “town,” miles apart from the family’s rural residence on the outskirts of Bishop.
Melissa told, alone she picked up Karlie Guse at about 8 p.m., then took her home close to White Mountain Estate Road in Chalfant, which is situated around 14 miles north of Bishop.
According to the stepmother, Guse was notably disturbed while going to the home, admits she was panicked the car was going to hit her and exchanged seats many times throughout the journey.
Once got home, Guse had very dilated pupils and also connected to the lettuce in her salad as the “devil’s lettuce”, her father, Zac, and stepmother recollected her memory in a testimony.
Melissa was fine that she finally comforted Karlie Guse and even slept with her in her room all night to make sure she remained fine.
At around 5:30 a.m. the next morning, Melissa reportedly woke up and when she watched her, Karlie Guse was laying next to her, and she was awake. Melissa said she dozed off then for a little while, then woke up at around 7:15 a.m to 7:30 a.m. to learn Karlie missing.
Fox also publishes the teen’s stepmother had taped her voice, which sounded disorientated. Melissa allegedly needed to prove her stepdaughter what she sounded like under the shock.
However, according to private investigator Michael Boone, that recording was the last time Guse’s voice was listened to before she disappeared.
Both Zac and Melissa allege they do not have idea any clue where Karlie Guse is, while Lindsay has her suspicions about their story. During an arrival on Dr. Phil earlier this year, Lindsay said that the pair remade their timeline and edition of incidents many times.
Moving with the first day after Karle’s disappearance, Melissa live-streamed updates about the investigation on Facebook. With videos circulating, what appeared like a hopeless mother looking for her stepdaughter, almost right after this incident, became the origin of assumption and mockery from the public.
“One thing that bothers me as a licensed psychotherapist is the stepmother’s eyes shift constantly which indicates she’s lying,” read a YouTube post by Francine Hartzog, 52, of Davidson, North Carolina.
Even Karlie’s real mother mistrusted the statements Melissa made about the disappearance of her daughter.
On a 2019 episode of “Dr. Phil,” Karlie’s mom said, “I believe my daughter had a fatal drug overdose . . . and I believe that very early morning, Melissa saw her with her eyes open, and I think that’s when my daughter passed.”
Michael Boone who is a private investigator retained by Fairley said the Sheriff’s Office did not fulfill proper protocol when interrogating was done of Karlie Guse’s disappearance.
Boone said: “Karlie’s bedding wasn’t taken and analyzed; no search warrant was served on the cars.”
Melissa has kept on denying by having hand in Karlie Guse disappearance.
“It feels awful,” commenting about the allegations. “When Karlie went missing that day, everything happened so fast . . . She’s not dead; she is missing.”
Right after Karlie Guse disappearance, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office published a statement that she “was last seen in the early morning of Saturday, October 13, 2018, in the White Mountain Estates in Chalfant, walking toward Highway 6.”
Karlie was never caught sight of anyone again. She disappeared without any evidence. Authorities published a report says Karlie Guse was last recognized at White Mountain Estate Road and Route 6, in Mono County, California.

Karlie Guse Was Uncontrollably Erratic And Paranoid The Night Before She Vanished
Karlie’s step-mother, Melissa, said Karlie was last seen getting into an SUV with two males at around 8:00 p.m. on the night before she vanished while walking home from her job as an escort service provider in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to Crime Online. Karlie told her stepmother that she’d smoked marijuana and was feeling “paranoid” the night before. To her stepmother, Karlie seems “disoriented.”
Lindsay, her biological mother, told CrimeOnline, “I feel my daughter had a response to whatever she had consumed the night before her abduction.” “A qualified medical practitioner should have evaluated Karlie, and a law enforcement agency should have taken a more proactive approach.”
Fairley went on to say that she had “every right” to doubt Zachary and Melissa’s actions because their “behaviour certainly makes me question what transpired that night.”
Fairley previously appeared on “Dr. Phil” to raise awareness about the loss of her daughter. Karlie died in bed, she said, while she was still at home with her stepmother.
“I believe my daughter had a drug overdose,” Lindsay said with teary eyes to Dr. Phil. “And I believe it because she was screaming and asking for help…And I believe very early morning Melissa saw her with her eyes open and I think that’s when my daughter passed.”
Karlie Gusé’s parents are still searching for answers regarding their daughter’s death. Karlie was shot in the face as she walked back to her home after getting ice cream with friends, according to reports.
Her behavior after Gusé picked her up that night was highly unusual – she was paranoid that someone would kill her or that she would die, according to Stories of the Unsolved. She was particularly concerned about being tracked on her phone.
This has led some people to believe Karlie had been using other than marijuana that night and perhaps remained high when she left the house.
Karlie eventually calmed down, and Gusé rested next to her, according to Crime Online. Melissa awoke around 5:30 a.m. and noted that Karlie was asleep in bed with her eyes open, then drifted off again until 7:15 or 7:30 a.m. When she awoke, later on, Karlie was no longer there, according to her account.
Karlie’s father, Zachary Gusé, told the FBI he had two theories: He believes that Karlie either wandered so far into the desert that she died out there or was kidnapped as she walked down the road, according to an interview on YouTube.
According to the principal of Bishop Union High School in Gaffney, South Carolina, Karlie’s photo had been circulating on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.
After numerous scans produced no leads (and so much time has elapsed), he believes people’s subconscious minds have accepted “the fact that we’ll probably never see Karlie again.”
No one has been charged in connection with Karlie’s disappearance, and no suspects have been named.
