    Lupe Gallegos didn't seem to get much help at all. Five years after Sharon was kidnapped, she was still trying to get information from the FBI. Sharon has never been registered with any of the missing persons agencies. I think nobody helped Lupe. It was 1960 and there was no internet. After all of the years, it just sounds like Sharon was no longer a priority for law enforcement.

    What do we need to do to get Sharon registered with Namus? What do we need to do to get this information to the Arizona police or whoever will make comparisons?

    Not only wasn't there internet in 1960, but Lupe didn't even have a phone in the house. They were a poor family. Lupe supported the family by working as a housekeeper in a local hotel. Her husband was long gone.

    Prescott is the county seat for Yavapai County. The location where LMN was found is west of there in lower desert area.
    I checked temps around that time and for those dates are a little different. I used Wickenburg because it is the closest town
    that would likely have weather records. It's a remote area, mostly open desert.
    Prescott is higher in elevation and cooler.

    July 18, 1960-- Low- 80 F High- 111 F
    July 19, 1960-- Low- 80F High- 107 F
    July 20, 1960-- Low- 80F High- 107F
    July 21, 1960-- Low- 79F High- 108F

    I would also like to add that in August we are in our summer rainy season, commonly called Monsoon here.
    The humidity would be higher than in the months of May and June.

    Just trying to help out with the temperature differences between Prescott and Wickenburg. :)

    Highway 93 is the main route between Phoenix and Las Vegas. Back then it was
    a 2 lane paved road. It now has 4 lanes in some areas and continues to be improved.
    It can be dangerous , especially on weekends with travelers going to and from Las Vegas for the weekend.

    She was found about a mile west of the highway partially buried in a wash. I don't know if a rain storm
    unearthed her just enough to be found, but would be my first guess.

    I took a field trip out to the area where LMN was found. The wash was about half a mile off of Hwy 93 and would be
    pretty easy to dig a grave. IMHO. There was another wash about a mile back, but it was smaller and had more rocks and
    not as easy to dig. That being said, I don't know exactly where she was located. According to news articles, and statements
    from L.E. she was off this road in a wash.
    I wanted to give a visual on how the vegetation and landscape of the area.

    First is Alamo Road Looking East towards Hwy 93
    The 2nd photo is Alamo Road looking West towards the wash.
    The 3rd photo is a view of the wash as it crosses Alamo Road.
    Also, in the middle photo is my husband's truck parked just off the road.
    All you can see is the tail light and a bit of the truck bed.

    These photos were taking inside the wash to give an idea of what it looks like
    once you are off Alamo Road.

    Thank you, @patsella! Great pics!

    I also want to remind people who are looking at these pics that the desert doesn't change very quickly, so this may be much like it was when our little girl was left there.

    Great pics patsella :thankyou:
    Thank-you for taking them!
    The sand and grounds look so soft.
    I'm amazed she was found out there.

    Especially out there, it's isolated and not many people. In the 30 years I've driven over that highway the landscape hasn't changed much.

    The washes may have more erosion, saw some evidence of that in a different wash. But other than that it's a lot of open desert and an old dirt road, used by ranchers mostly.
    Speaking of the area where LMN was found and photos were taken.
