Stacy rode into an area of Yosemite with her father and 6 others where they reached a cluster of cabins, where people could rest up overnight.   The group tied the horses and some of them went into the cabins to freshen up.  After getting changed into different clothes Stacy left her cabin with the intention of photographing the lake, she had her camera with her. 

She asked her Dad if he wanted to go with her to lake but he declined and instead a 72 year old man from their group decided to go with her instead, after a little while down the hill the elderly man felt tried and sat down, the rest of the group watching from up above saw the man sit down.  They all watched as Stacy went on a little further towards the lake, go behind a couple of trees and eventually disappear from sight, after a few moments when she didn’t return the elderly gentleman was a little worried and gathered the others for a search, they found Stacy’s lens from her camera just a little way into the woodland but no other clues were found.  Over the next few days hundreds of searchers, national guard and local volunteers searched the area but never found a trace of Stacy.  When the author of the Missing 411 books David Paulides was researching the Stacy Arras case, after twice having Freedom of information requestions denied to him, he was told quite bluntly that “he would never get this case”.
