Wendelin ‘Wendy’ Stauffer

A San Luis Obispo woman is missing after she failed to report for work and her family noticed she was gone.

According to Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Cipolla, on July 12 they received a report that Wendelin “Wendy” Stauffer, 29, no address given, was reported missing by a family member. “Stauffer last made contact with her employer in San Luis Obispo in May 2023,” Cipolla said, “telling her employer she needed to go to Ventura to help a friend/family member.”

That story was apparently a ruse of some sort. “On July 10,” Cipolla said, “Stauffer was last seen at the San Jose Regional Medical Center. But it is unknown to family members why Stauffer would be in the San Jose area. Stauffer currently has no known address.”

She is described as a white woman, 5-feet 5-inches tall, 140 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. The family member who reported her missing, reportedly has no way to contact her and Cipolla said, “has had little regular contact with her in the past.” 

If readers have information on the whereabouts of Wendy Stauffer you should contact the Sheriff’s Office at (805) 781-4550.
