The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that the suspect in the disappearance of a missing Fernley woman may be driving a dark 2020 or newer Chevrolet 2500, High Country 4-door pickup truck.

Naomi Irion, 18, was last seen at abut 5 a.m. March 12 in the Walmart parking lot. Surveillance video showed a man forcing his way into her car and driving off with her in the car.

The car was found about noon Tuesday in the industrial park east of Walmart. The vehicle has since been retrieved, searched and forensically analyzed. Forensic evidence has been recovered and is being expedited for testing through the Washoe County Forensic Investigation Section.
