Lynette Beard, transportation supervisor for the Ramona Unified School District, explained that bus drivers follow a clear protocol for school bus safety — Vehicle Code 22112.

Sally Estabrook was last seen around 4 p.m. Saturday at the 26.5-acre campground in the 4400 block of state Route 79, north of Harrison Park Road, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
She apparently walked off while her husband was showering, and he called the sheriff’s department to report her missing shortly before 5 p.m.

Anyone who spots Estabrook is asked to call 911 or the sheriff’s department at 858-565-5200.
