Investigators Continue to Search Thunder Valley Casino area to look for any sign of 27-year-old Christie Wilson

According to KXTV investigators continue to search and expand the search to cover the grounds of the Thunder Valley Casino property for any sign of 27-year-old Sacramento woman, Christie Wilson, who vanished after spending the night gambling at a Lincoln casino.

The Placer County Sheriff’s Department helicopter and ground teams on all-terrain vehicles spent much of Sunday scouring the property around Thunder Valley Casino to look for any sign of 27-year-old Christie Wilson. It was the second time the area has been searched.

Investigators believe Wilson and 53-year-old Mario Flavio Garcia met in the casino and spent much of the evening of October 4 gambling together. Wilson was last seen on a surveillance tape walking through the casino parking lot with a man investigators believe is Garcia at 1:15 a.m. on October 5.

Police have arrested Mario Flavio Garcia, the last known person seen with Christie Wilson.

Detectives arrested Garcia Friday evening near his Auburn home. He was booked on two felony counts of illegal weapons possession. The charges stem from a search of Garcia’s property conducted as part of the investigation into Wilson’s disappearance.

According to the sheriff’s department, bail for Garcia has been set at $1 million. The high amount is reportedly due to Garcia’s criminal history and concerns that he might be a flight risk.

Man Last Seen With Missing Sacramento Woman Arrested

Mario Flavio Garcia was arrested near his Auburn area home Friday night. They took him in on felony weapons charges, after investigators uncovered un-registered weapons during a search.

Still authorities are playing it safe, only calling him a “person of interest.”

“For us to name him a suspect at this point, we have to have a better level of probable cause other than the weapons charges. We still don’t know if a crime was committed although we suspect it,” said Lt. George Malim, Placer Co. Sheriff’s Department.

Update: Man Last Seen With Christie Wilson In Court

(CBS 13) AUBURN Several new developments in the case of a missing woman last seen at the Thunder Valley Casino in Placer County. The Auburn man who authorities consider a “person of interest” in the disappearance of the 27-year-old woman has made his first court appearance. And a new witness who saw the two together has come forward.

Fifty-three-year-old Mario Garcia plead not guilty to weapons charges Tuesday afternoon. He’s been behind bars since Friday with his bail set at $1 million dollars.

These charges are unrelated to the disappearance of Christie Wilson, Placer County detectives said again today he is the only ‘person of interest’ in the case. A person of interest who was the last to ever been seen with Christie Wilson. It would appear that many of these cases all have the same MO wouldn’t they, Christie Wilson, Taylor Behl, Julie Popovich and Natalee Holloway? Who was the last individual ever seen with the missing girl?
