The woman who, early in April, garnered national notoriety when she harassed an elderly Jewish Trump supporter in a Palo Alto Starbucks has been reported missing. Rebecca Parker Mankey did not return home after visiting a friend and was reported as missing to police.
Sgt. Aaron Clark of the Lake County Sheriff’s office said that investigators believe she dropped “off the grid” to evade the negative attention she has been receiving. He said, “We have nothing that makes us think she’s at-risk. We’ve determined from the people we’ve talked to that she is voluntarily missing.”
He also indicated that cellphone activity placed Mankey in the Aberdeen area of Washington state, about 9 am Friday.
Mankey has reportedly received death threats after the story went viral about how she chose to suddenly start harassing a 74-year old man minding his own business in a Starbucks because he was wearing a MAGA hat.
Although they believe the woman is in no danger, police are asking for tips on Mankey’s whereabouts.
