Missing Woman's Truck Is Found Near Pier

January 08, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

A pickup truck belonging to a possibly suicidal Long Beach woman missing since Wednesday was found near the Manhattan Beach pier Sunday evening, and police said neighbors reported it had been parked since Friday.

Meanwhile, the husband of Jerri Antoinette Taylor, 47, said checks on credit card charges had led to a Long Beach hotel that she apparently stayed in the first night after leaving home.

Taylor, who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing nearly 200 pounds, with brown eyes and black, curly hair, about shoulder length, left a note saying, "The world would be better off without me," before leaving home.

A Long Beach police spokeswoman, Jana Blair, said there has been no sign of foul play in the case, and expressed hope that Taylor would be found alive and unharmed.
