The last sighting of Mint was on April 21 at around 10 p.m. in Bolinas, California. Authorities, including Adam Schermerhorn, stated that there was no evidence of foul play or any criminal activity related to Mint’s disappearance.

The press release from the police mentioned that it was unclear how Mint left the area since they did not have access to a vehicle or a phone. They emphasized that there was no indication of Mint being taken against their will. However, due to a previous threat of suicide, Mint was considered an “At-Risk” voluntary-missing juvenile. Based on Mint’s mother’s statements, the police believed that Mint might have traveled to the Tenderloin District of San Francisco.
