Police say Rashelle Klontz was last seen in the parking lot of Country Mercantile, off Highway 395 just north of Pasco, around 3:00 p.m. 

Police say she had been visiting a friend in Hermiston, Oregon and was on her way back home to Sandpoint, Idaho, when she stopped at the store to eat around 10:30 a.m. Klontz's family reported being in contact with her up until about 12:15 p.m.

Police found Klontz's purse and cell phone inside of Country Mercantile. They also found a journal inside Klontz's Toyota Rav4 which was sitting in the store's parking lot. Police say entries from her journal suggest that she wanted to go hiking in the desert.
