Another woman missing in Fernley

Breanne Sedgwick, 37, of Fernley has been missing since Monday morning. This family photo was posted by the Lyon County Sheriff's Office.

Law enforcement authorities in Fernley are once again searching for a missing woman.

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office reported Tuesday afternoon that 37-year-old Breanne Sedgwick was last seen leaving her residence in Fernley around 9 a.m. Monday.

“She advised she was going to the store and has not been heard from since,” the department reported on its Facebook page.

Sedgwick is approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 225 pounds. She has brown hair with green highlights. She was wearing dark-colored leggings and a dark green or black pullover hoodie.

She drove away from the residence in a 2001 maroon Chevrolet pickup with a blue hood, Nevada plate number 064P11.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact LCSO Dispatch 775-463-6620.

On March 12, 18-year-old Naomi Irion went missing on her way to work. A man was seen entering her car in a Walmart parking lot where she planned to catch a bus to her job at a Reno-area Panasonic facility.

Troy Driver, 41, of Fallon was arrested nearly two weeks later.

Prosecutors say Driver shot Irion northeast of Fernley, where he took her “for the purpose of committing sexual assault and/or purpose of killing her.” In addition to burying Irion’s body, Driver disposed of tires from his truck in an effort to eliminate incriminating evidence, they said.

Driver made a brief virtual appearance from jail Tuesday at a status hearing in justice court in Fernley.

Clark County authorities say a body found in a desert area has been identified as a Las Vegas man who was a homicide victim. The Clark County coroner’s office says the body is that of 59-year-old Martin Lopez-Aguilar. The body was found last Sunday morning and police say it had signs of trauma. Las Vegas Metro Police say the man died at the scene, but the official cause and manner of death still are pending and the homicide investigation is ongoing.

Authorities say a knife-wielding psychiatric patient has fatally stabbed one man and wounded another inside a Las Vegas hospital. Metro Police say the stabbings occurred early Thursday in the psychiatric ward of University Medical Center. They say it’s an “isolated incident” and the hospital remains open. Police didn’t immediately identify the suspect except to say he’s in his 40s. They say he left his hospital room and fatally stabbed a male patient in another room for an unknown reason. The suspect then stabbed another male patient in a hallway and was later taken into custody in his room by correctional officers. Police say one man died from his injuries. The condition of the other victim hasn't been released yet.

The U.S. Forest Service has approved a new rule waiving fees for unauthorized grazing under some circumstances in a move blasted by an environmental group that says the agency is codifying lax enforcement. The Forest Service issued the decision this month following a 2016 Government Accountability Office report that found the agency couldn’t identify how much unauthorized grazing was occurring because it often handled cases informally with no documentation. Western Watersheds Project says the agency's new rule creates loopholes allowing a rampant industry practice to continue. But the Public Lands Council that supports federal public land grazing says the new rule simply provides clarity for livestock growers.

Washoe County has established a legal assistance fund for county employees who’ve been unfairly attacked or harassed in public. The move comes as tempers increasingly flare during hostile confrontations over election procedures and other controversies. The Reno Gazette Journal reports the legal and personal services approved this week will be available to county workers, but not elected officials. The overall fund would be capped at $150,000 annually. County Manager Eric Brown says it's an effort to make sure that the rights of the county's employees are protected. He says public discourse has grown hostile to the point that some county employees have received death threats.

Police in northern Nevada say a 47-year-old man is sought in the weekend shooting death of his wife and the wounding of a relative after an argument in the parking lot of a bar in Winnemucca. Ty Victor Albisu was identified as the suspect in the slaying late Saturday of Linda Walker Albisu and a hand injury received by 21-year-old Dylan James Hobbs. Investigators told KOLO-TV in Reno that Ty Albisu and Linda Albisu were married, and Hobbs is Linda Albisu’s grandson. All three live in the Nevada-Idaho state line town of McDermitt, more than a one-hour drive north of Winnemucca.

Authorities say at least 10 buildings have been damaged or destroyed and more than two dozen vehicles have been burned in a four-alarm fire overnight in downtown Las Vegas. They say about 100 people went to an evacuation center at a school Sunday morning and only one minor injury for smoke inhalation was reported. The exact number of buildings, condo units, businesses and vehicles that were damaged or destroyed are still being counted. Las Vegas Fire & Rescue officials say the cause of the fire is under investigation. They say fire crews returning to their station from a previous call when they noticed a large column of smoke in the downtown area around 1 a.m.

Authorities have identified a psychiatric patient accused of fatally stabbing one man and wounding another inside a Las Vegas hospital. Police say 48-year-old Michael Earl was booked Thursday into Clark County jail on charges related to murder and use of a deadly weapon. It was not immediately known Friday if Earl had an attorney. The stabbings occurred earlier in the day in a secured area of University Medical Center where psychiatric patients are treated. Earl left his room and fatally stabbed a patient who was in soft restraints. He allegedly then went into a hallway and began stabbing another man on a gurney.
