The search for a missing California woman spotted at a gas station three weeks ago has turned into a criminal investigation.

Jolissa Fuentes was last seen on August 7 at the AM/PM gas station in Selma, California, about 15 miles southeast of Fresno.

She had just left a meeting at her family’s home around 3:00 am on August 6 to collect some of her belongings from home. An hour later, around 4am, a security camera caught Fuentes getting out of her car – a silver 2011 Hyundai Accent – and going to the gas station and making a purchase before returning to her vehicle.

Police said Fuentes then got into her silver 2011 Hyundai Accent and drove west before disappearing.

Family members said that as she pulled out of the gas station parking lot, Fuentes made the wrong turn to get to her home, based on surveillance footage.

At around 5:24 a.m., 90 minutes after she was first seen, she called her sister twice, but the calls went unanswered.

Nothing has been heard from her since then.

The distraught family turned to amateur dive team Adventures with Purpose to help search for her by combing nearby lakes.

The dive team has solved 23 missing persons cases and most recently discovered the body and silver SUV of missing teenager Kiely Rodni, 16.

The divers searched Avocado and Pine Flat Lake in their search for Fuentes after police said their phone last pinged in that area. However, the dive teams could not find any trace of her.

Joann Branda, Fuentes’ aunt, said it was encouraging news that her niece was not found in the area the divers searched, KSEE/KGPE News reported.

“It helped free us from those thoughts, so now we can move on with that,” Branda said in part.

Fuentes, mother Norma Nunez, added: “It gives us 100% security. That’s all we have is faith. what else can we do We know she’s out there and we know she’s alive,” the news outlet reported.

The family has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to Fuentes’ whereabouts.
