imageEL CAJON, Calif. — A 60 year-old El Cajon woman who disappeared three days ago may have crossed the border and been involved in a traffic collision with a police officer near Tijuana, according to her husband.

Anne Terhune’s family says she left home around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday to visit the Fletcher Hills Branch Library.  Several hours later, her husband called police when she failed to return.

Terhune was driving a 2004 gold Mercury Marquis with California license plate 5KLY673.

Her husband, Brian Moon, said El Cajon Police called him the next morning to report the car was spotted crossing the border at the San Ysidro port of entry around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

“I don’t think this is something she would do.  It’s completely out of character,” said Moon.

According to Moon, detectives told him his wife was involved in a traffic collision with a police officer.  Terhune was reportedly not hurt, but said she was lost.

Moon said he was told the officer tried to lead Terhune back to the border, but lost her.

“I don’t know if she’s dead or alive.  I don’t know if she’s hurt.  It’s been raining for two days – she didn’t even take a coat.  She only had a couple of dollars with her.  She was coming right back for dinner,” said Moon.

Terhune’s family is offering a $1,000 reward for any information.

Anyone with information is urged to call El Cajon Police at 619-579-3320.
