‘America’s Most Wanted’ helps on Nita Mayo case with Texas Equusearch

Americas Most Wanted sent film crews to Tuolumne County to film segments on the search for a Nevada woman, Nita Mayo, who has been missing for more than two months. The producers focused their story of Tim Miller and Texas Equusearch but featured the story about the missing Mayo and the search for her and other type of work Miller does.

Crews from the TV show “America’s Most Wanted” were in Tuolumne County over the weekend, filming a segment on the search for a Nevada woman, now missing for more than two months.

Producers say the show on the search for Nita Mayo will run in late November or early December.

Last weekend’s search was organized by Tim Miller, a Texas man who founded a horse-mounted search-and-rescue group, EquuSearch, in 2000 in memory of his daughter Laura who was abducted and murdered in 1984.

“America’s Most Wanted” producers focused their story on Miller and EquuSearch, but featured the story about the search for Mayo as the type of work Miller does.

Nita Mayo’s children flew out to California for the large scale search in hopes of finding clues to their mother’s whereabouts and at the very least gaining national exposure to the case.

“We will finally reach people who have information, but did not know that they had it because they did not know she is missing,” said Tracy Mayo, the youngest of Nita Mayo’s four adult children.

“We had an amazing showing of support by many wonderful and caring people, people that I feel privileged to call friends now,” she added.

The family remains united in their goals of finding their mother and vows, “We will never give up”. Even though the investigators remain stumped over the disappearance of Nita Mayo.

Tuolumne County Sheriff’s investigators remain stumped over what happened to Mayo. Her purse, wallet, car keys, and other personal items were locked inside her silver Mercury Sable station wagon.

Investigators have followed up on dozens of leads and possible sightings in California and Nevada that have gone nowhere, said Lt. Keith Lunney. They have repeatedly questioned her friends, co-workers and acquaintances.

Mayo’s bank account has not been touched, her credit cards have not been used, she was not in the middle of any personal turmoil, her family and friends say, and was scheduled to be at work the day after her day trip over Sonora Pass.

There is a $10,000 reward for the safe return of Nita Mayo. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at 533-5815.
