Police ask for urgent help in finding missing mother and daughter
A 29-year-old mother and her 10-year-old daughter went missing during a camping trip several days ago.
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office has since asked the community to be on the lookout for Audrey Rodigue and her daughter Emily.
They were last seen driving a grey '18 Ford Focus with plate number 8DIN900 and presumably went missing while camping along the Northern Californian coast.

Both have blonde hair and blue eyes. They traveled from Canada to San Fransisco where they rented a Ford Focus at the International Airport over the weekend.
Investigators have since traced their steps and confirmed that they checked into the Vagabond Hotel in Burlingame on Sunday afternoon.
Authorities believe that the mother and daughter never arrived at their destination at Pidgeon Point Hotel the following day.

Rodrigue sent her partner a text message on Sunday afternoon, but he was unable to reach her and reported them missing on Monday.
According to her partner, they were planning to stay at the Fish Lake Campground in Humboldt County from Tuesday.
Campers and staff at the campground saw the Rodrigue and Emily but said they didn't appear to be in distress.

Earlier this month, 24-year-old Kirsten Ashley Bennett from New port, North Carolina, went missing after she left her residence on foot and never returned.
She was last seen wearing a blue tank top with white stripes, blue jean shorts, black tennis shoes and an orange-longsleeved sweater.
The incident followed less than two weeks after 19-year-old Kiera Bergman disappeared from her place of employment in Arizona.
She had not been heard from since she left for work that morning. Her office is only ten minutes from her apartment; both her purse and car were found at her home.
