UPDATE: The family has identified the woman as Lopine “Chynna” Toilolo, 30 of West Jordan.
Her family reported she hadn’t been seen or heard from since Saturday, May 9th. They say she missed the “virtual family gathering” on Mother’s Day. She had reportedly texted her mom around midnight on Saturday that she was on her way home but never returned.
According to a post on Facebook from her aunt, the police told her parents on Sunday they couldn’t open an official “missing persons” case yet. Instead, the family turned to social media.
Police confirmed Thursday morning Toilolo was the victim. “The sheriff’s office would like to express our deepest condolences to the family, friends and community of Chynna. The investigation is still ongoing and there is no further information to release at this time.”
A GoFundMe has been created to support the family.
