Probably the most relevant thing is for all of us to keep our eyes open for the vehicle and go from there.

maybe she went up Hunchback Mountain trail?

She was last seen Aug 29, so some day after that

A backpack has been found that her family believes is hers. Unfortunately, it was turned in at the ranger station back on 8/30. They don't have info on exactly where it was found or, I gather, exactly who turned it in, beyond that it was a mother and daughter. Obviously that would be really useful info to have, so they want to identify those people and talk to them.

If this forum can get a lost wedding ring back its owner three months later, it seems like there's a real chance to turn up someone who remembers a pair like that mentioning finding a pack, hiking in the area, or just stopping in at the ranger station on 8/30. People who might not be following the news, or out-of-towners passing through on an extended Labor Day weekend.
