SUTTER COUNTY (FOX40) — Ransom messages that were sent to missing college student Aly Yeoman’s family were fake, according to the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office.

Officials have determined that the person was not involved in Aly’s disappearance and did not have knowledge of her whereabouts.
Law enforcement officials are working with prosecutors on possible charges related to the false ransom messages.
