SAN FRANCISCO, California, Feb. 28, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman who grew up in Kaysville is still missing after a landslide buried her and another woman on a San Francisco beach Friday.

A news release released from the family said Kyra Sunshine Scarlet, 22, was on the beach at Fort Funston, in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, on the afternoon of Feb. 22.

“One woman was rescued by bystanders and first responders,” the news release said. “The second young woman, Scarlet, was buried and as of the release of this information, has yet to be located.”

Scarlet was born in Florida and raised in Kaysville. At the time of the accident, she was living in Oakley, Calif.

“Kyra Sunshine was a beautiful, sweet, amazing woman,” a shared statement from her family said. “She died in one of her favorite places after hiking with her sweet dog Iris and her dear friend.”

“The family’s faith allows for them to be at peace knowing that Kyra Sunshine is in a better place and that they will be reunited in the future.”

The family said they would like to thank the many public safety agencies that have worked “to help find Kyra Sunshine, watch over the site and the kindness they have shown the family.”

A GoFundMe account has been set up with the stated purpose of helping the family with expenses. It says, in part:

“Immediate family members have had to travel from Utah to California to be close to the location of the slide while the search for Kyra’s body continues. These funds will support the family with all related expenses and provide peace of mind during this tender time.”

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
