The body of Sally Estabrook, mother-in-law of Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine, has been found some 55 days after she went missing.
Estabrook, 75, was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and disappeared from a campsite in Julian, San Diego, on October 4 and despite a huge search for her by emergency services and volunteers they were unable to locate her. Her boy was found by a maintenance worker in heavy brush.
Mustaine publicly thanked the police for their efforts while the search was ongoing by saying: “They’ve gone on longer than they were supposed to. They held off on the cadaver dogs and switching from rescue to recovery longer than they should have.”
Last night he said via Facebook: “Yesterday evening I received a call that a person had located a body, and the investigators described our beloved mother, Sally Estabrook. Thank you all for your prayers, your good thoughts and positive vibes.”
San Diego Sheriff Officer John Maryon reported that an autopsy would be carried out on her remains, but foul play was not suspected.
