Palo Alto, CA – Police continue to actively investigate the disappearance of 66-year-old Wamaitha Kaboga-Miller. Our detectives have no new leads and are still encouraging the public to call in tips and possible sightings.

It has been nearly two weeks since Kaboga-Miller went missing on Friday, August 17. She was last seen driving away from the Country Time Market on University Avenue in East Palo Alto, heading east. Her family filed a missing person report with our department on Saturday, August 18. Since then, our detectives have been searching for any sign of her.

We have followed up on all tips that have been received, however none of them have led to a confirmed sighting of Kaboga-Miller or her vehicle. To date, there has been nothing to indicate that there is a criminal aspect to her disappearance.

Kaboga-Miller takes numerous prescription medications, but she left those medications at home. We are in regular communication with her family and it is our sincere hope that we can locate her safe and sound. She was last seen driving a silver 2002 Mercedes Benz with a California license plate of DP241LU.
