Shameca Lewis Johnson, 24, was last seen in the 1500 block of Sierra Bonita Drive on Aug. 20 between noon and 2 p.m., according to the Placentia Police Department.

Johnson, who had no car, regularly walked to work in the area of Kraemer Boulevard and Imperial Highway in the city of Brea.

It was unclear if Johnson was headed to work when she disappeared.

Johnson’s cell phone was not working and she left behind her personal belongings, according to police.

She was described as 5 feet 3 inches tall with red hair and brown eyes. Johnson weighed 105 pounds and was possibly wearing a black tank top, khaki pants, plastic multi-colored bracelets, a “chain mail” bracelet, silver thumb ring, a tan leather wallet on a chain and a dark-colored CamelBak backpack.

A Facebook page – Help Find Shameca Johnson –  was set up by her parents to distribute information and possibly get leads on her whereabouts. The page stated that Johnson had a tattoo of music notes on her left bicep, reading “beautiful immortal,” and a three-leaf clover tattoo behind her left ear.

“She loves the outdoors, music and dance,” the page stated.

One Facebook post on the page encouraged musicians to play outside, saying the likelihood of finding Johnson would increase “if she hears music.”

Authorities asked that anyone with information on Johnson’s disappearance contact the Placentia Police Department at 714-993-8187.
