According to the Riverside Press Enterprise, Howse was last seen Monday, July 23, at 4 p.m. at her place of work, Taco Bell in Big Bear Lake.
Howse may be with a male friend, deputies told the Press Enterprise.
"Howse is believed to be in the company of … 23-year-old Alberto Silva Sanchez, also a resident of Big Bear city," sheriff's spokesperson Tiffany Swantek said Thursday in a statement released to the Press Enterprise. "Sanchez is reported to be driving a 1997 black Ford F150 … truck with Kansas license plates."
Swantek said Howse and Sanchez are friends, but she did not know how long they have known each other or any additional information about the case.
"She was dropped off (at work) by a family member and didn't come home," she said.
Flesh-N-Bone, whose legal name is Stanley Howse, conveyed his concern to TMZ. "We hope and pray for the safe return of our daughter," he said. "We ask anyone with information on her whereabouts to please contact the authorities."
Those with information regarding Howse's disappearance are asked to call the detectives at (909) 866-0100. Anonymous reports can be made by calling 1 (800) 78-CRIME.
