Karlie Guse: Disappeared in a Mysterious Way

It has been more than a year since California teen Karlie Gusé got missed on the early morning of October 13, from Mono County and investigators tell they are no closer to finding her up till now.

During a press conference, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office declared that inquiries into Karlie’s disappearance will resume until they get a clue. Still, they have had no viable leads or clues that have headed to her spot.

Mono County Sheriff Ingrid Braud stated the case continues a missing person investigation but officials are “considering every possibility.” 

“We are no closer to finding Karlie,” Braun said. “Should this develop into a crime, we do not want our investigation to be jeopardized in any way. Therefore, we will not release any information about what investigative actions have taken place.” 

Karlie’s mother, Lindsay Fairley, who took part in the press conference, told that there is not a single day that passes by that she does not recall about her daughter. Karlie’s father, Zac Gusé, and stepmother, Melissa Gusé, were also present.

Lindsay recalled her memory with CrimeOnline that she has perpetually had a friendly relationship with her daughter Karlie, who was residing with her father and stepmother when she lost. Lindsay said she has physical custody of Karlie, but when Lindsay moved, her daughter stayed back at her father’s residence in Mono County to visit the high school with her friends.

Sheriff Braun stated that the parents have been supportive during the inquiry, including stepmother Melissa, reportedly the last person to see Karlie before she disappeared.

“It was exactly one year ago today that I received your last text, not knowing it would be the last time I heard from you,” Lindsay said, directing a letter she had written to Karlie. “Two days after that I got a call that made this whole world go dark: the news of that my sweet rainbow baby had gone missing. I have so many questions, Karlie! What happened to you, honey? Where are you?” 

What Happened Earlier:

As Fox News reported earlier that, the events surrounding her disappearance are very perplexing. Karlie is supposed to have disappeared between the hours of around 5:45 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. Melissa Gusé earlier mentioned on CrimeOnline that she picked up Karlie the night earlier in “town,” miles apart from the family’s rural residence on the outskirts of Bishop.

Melissa told, alone she picked up Karlie at about 8 p.m., then took her home close to White Mountain Estate Road in Chalfant, which situated around 14 miles north of Bishop.

According to the stepmother, Guse was notably disturbed while going to the home, admits she was panicked the car was going to hit her, and exchanging seats many times throughout the journey.

Once got home, Guse had very dilated pupils and also connected to the lettuce in her salad as the “devil’s lettuce”, her father, Zac, and stepmother recollected her memory in a testimony.

Melissa fine that she finally comforted Karlie and even slept with her in her room all night to make sure she remained fine.

At around 5:30 a.m. the next morning, Melissa reportedly woke up and when she watched her, Karlie was laying next to her, and she was awake. Melissa said she dozed off then for a little while, then woke up at around 7:15 a.m to 7:30 a.m. to learn Karlie missing.

Fox also publishes the teen’s stepmother had taped her voice, which sounded disorientated. Melissa allegedly needed to prove her stepdaughter what she sounded like under the shock.

However, according to private investigator Michael Boone, that recording was the last time Guse’s voice was listened to before she disappeared.

Both Zac and Melissa allege they do not have idea any clue where Karlie is, while Lindsay has her suspicions about their story. During an arrival on Dr. Phil earlier this year, Lindsay said that the pair remade their timeline and edition of incidents many times.


Moving with the first day after Karle’s disappearance, Melissa live-streamed updates about the investigation on Facebook. With videos circulating, what appeared like a hopeless mother looking for her stepdaughter, almost right after this incident, this became the origin of assumption and mockery from the public.

“One thing that bothers me as a licensed psychotherapist is the stepmother’s eyes shift constantly which indicates she’s lying,” read a YouTube post by Francine Hartzog, 52, of Davidson, North Carolina.

Even Karlie’s real mother mistrusted the statements Melissa made about the disappearance of her daughter.

On a 2019 episode of “Dr. Phil,” Karlie’s mom said, “I believe my daughter had a fatal drug overdose . . . and I believe that very early morning, Melissa saw her with her eyes open, and I think that’s when my daughter passed.”

Michael Boone who is a private investigator retained by Fairley said the Sheriff’s Office did not fulfill proper protocol when interrogating was done of Karlie’s disappearance.

Boone said: “Karlie’s bedding wasn’t taken and analyzed; no search warrant was served on the cars.”

Melissa has kept on denying by having hand in Karlie’s disappearance.

“It feels awful,” commenting about the allegations. “When Karlie went missing that day, everything happened so fast . . . She’s not dead; she is missing.”

Witness Saying:

Right after Karlie’s disappearance, the Mono County Sheriff’s Office published a statement that she “was last seen in the early morning of Saturday, October 13, 2018, in the White Mountain Estates in Chalfant, walking toward Highway 6.”

Karlie was never caught sight of anyone again. She disappeared without any evidence. Authorities published a report says Karlie Guse was last recognized at White Mountain Estate Road and Route 6, in Mono County, California.
