(KGTV) -- A San Diego woman’s mother is missing following a solo trip to Zion National Park in Utah, according to CNN.

Holly Courtier hasn’t been seen or heard from since October 6 when she embarked on the trip.

Courtier was dropped off at the park by a private shuttle bus and scheduled to be picked up the same day, but never returned, KABC reports.

Courtier’s daughter Kailey Chambers told the station her mother is an experienced hiker. Chambers also said Courtier lost her job due to the pandemic and recently bought a van to visit various national parks.

The National Parks Service says Courtier may be wearing a Pistil Gray Trucker Hat, a Patagonia Black Nano Puff Jacket, a Dark Tank Top, a Danner Trail Gray Hiking Boots, and an Osprey Blue Multi-Day Pack.

She may also be carrying a Kuhl Cream Open-front Hoody, a Rumple Nanoloft Puffy Blanket, and a Camouflage Doublesize Hammock, the parks service says.

Zion encompasses 232 square miles with more than 124,000 acres of designated wilderness.

Anyone with information is asked to call NPS ISB Tip Line at (888) 653-0009.
