Search resumes in Sandia Mountains for missing woman

Brittany Johnson

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – Authorities are still searching for a missing woman Thursday. Brittany Johnson, 24, was last seen on Saturday near downtown.

Her car was found Wednesday at Sandia Crest.

Search and rescue teams have been searching that area ever since…but so far no sign of her.

Now deputies say they’ve learned a male hiker came into the gift shop at Sandia Crest after finding car keys on a nearby trail.

They discovered the keys belonged to Johnson’s vehicle, so they decided to leave them on top of the car for when she returned. She never did.

Deputies are focusing on the area south of the parking lot where the keys were found but that could change.

Deputies say they’ve tried looking at surveillance cameras, but have had *no luck. They’re now trying to get a search warrant for her car to see if they find any more clues.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department at 505-886-1065 or 505-798-7000. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
