Sheriff’s detectives Tuesday kept up the search for a 29-year-old woman from Santa Clarita who disappeared Wednesday but whose bank account showed a withdrawal Friday.

Kristin Whitney Ghilardi withdrew money with a signature but without identification from a Chase bank branch in Northridge, NBC4 reported. Her family verified her signature at the bank.

Ghilardi was last seen at a friend’s house in Canyon Country between 2- 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and said she was going to take a man named Patrick to Simi Valley, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The last contact she had with her mother came by phone at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, said Detective Scott Miller of the sheriff’s Santa Clarita Station. Ghilardi’s mother reported her missing on Friday, Miller said.

Ghilardi and her mother live in separate homes in Santa Clarita.

Ghilardi is white, 5 feet 6, and about 140 pounds. She has a shaved head or very short hair and often wears a bandana or hat in different colors and miscellaneous bracelets.

Ghilardi was believed to have a cellphone with her, but it has been powered off, Miller said.

Ghilardi also was believed to have her car with her, a charcoal gray four-door 2006 Toyota Corolla with tinted windows, California license plate number 5VLM990.

Anyone with information about Ghilardi’s whereabouts was urged to call (661) 255-1121.
