Car Found In Kern County River May Be That Of Missing Ventura County Woman

Kern County authorities say they’ve recovered a vehicle belonging to a missing Ventura County woman from a river, and say there were human remains inside.

Lisa Harvey of Ventura disappeared in April, while she was driving to Lake Isabella. Hikers found some of the 51 year old woman’s personal items off of Highway 178 northeast of Bakersfield, leading to the discovery of the car’s wreckage in the Kern River.

The Kern County Coroner’s Office is doing DNA tests on the human remains found in the vehicle, to try to determine if they are Harvey’s.
