On Saturday, November 30, the Cochise County Sheriff's Office was advised that the 1991 white Ford Explorer last driven by missing person Mary Black was located.

According to CCSO, a man who had been hunting southwest of Picacho Peak, flagged down a U.S. Border Patrol agent and told him he located an abandon vehicle several miles away.
