On Dec. 21, Sgt. Darren Moss said in a video on the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office Twitter page that detectives found a body in a car during an investigation on the 21400 block of Meridian Avenue East in Graham. They did not have much information at the time because they needed a warrant to search the rest of the vehicle.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office posted information about Soto’s disappearance on Dec. 16, saying she was last seen on Nov. 7 at a residence in Burien. According to the statement, Soto frequented the areas of Granite Falls, Everett, and Des Moines. Family members grew concerned because they had not heard from her in several days.
