On November 7, 2019, at about 3:52 p.m., the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office
(SCSO) received a missing persons’ report from the mother of a Happy Camp woman.
Ms. Courtney Irene Culver, 24, of Happy Camp, reportedly left Happy Camp with a male
companion on October 24, 2019 and was last seen on that date at about 10:00 a.m. at the
Mechanic’s Bank in Happy Camp. Ms. Culver was with a former boyfriend, Mr.
Terrance McCovey at the time she was last seen. According to a family member, Ms.
Culver was traveling to Eureka, California but was due to return on November 2, 2019.
Her last text and contact with family members was on November 1, 2019.
Based on the circumstances of her disappearance and investigative follow-up
conducted by SCSO investigators, there is reason to believe Ms. Culver is endangered.
Ms. Culver, a Native American, is 24 years-old, 5’ 9” in height, with a slender
build (118 pounds). She has long, brown hair and brown eyes. She and her companion,
McCovey, may be operating a 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid SUV, with tinted windows. The
vehicle is black or dark blue in color, and bears a California license plate number of
8EPA770. Mr. McCovey is described as a Native American, 36 years-old, with a slender
build. He is 5’ 6” in height, weighs 125 pounds, and he has black, short to medium hair
with brown eyes. He has tattoos on his neck.
According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, “SCSO investigators are working with Humboldt
County Sheriff’s Office and Yreka Police Department partners in a team effort to locate
Ms. Culver and/or her companion, Mr. McCovey. Regional bulletins have been
broadcast to all law enforcement agencies. This case is being vigorously investigated and
anyone with information about Ms. Culver or Mr. McCovey’s whereabouts is urged to
