Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom The Missing Owner Quest Walkthrough

Find and help the Missing Owner of the Jewelry Shop to unlock a legendary weapon of Gerudo.

The Missing Owner Side Quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is challenging since it has a boss fight against a hard-to-defeat enemy. This quest concerns the disappearance of the Jewelry store owner in Gerudo Town. The owner’s colleague asks you to go and save her because she has wandered into the Molduga’s territory.

In this guide, we will help you locate The Missing Owner in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and return her safely to Gerudo town. So, let’s start by being a champion of the Gerudo People.

How to start The Missing Owner Quest in Zelda: TotK

The Missing Owner side quest can be started in two ways. You can find Cara inside the Gerudo Shelter if you want to start the quest before completing the main quest for Riju of Gerudo Town.

However, we strongly recommend against it, as the sandstorms will make your journey much more difficult. Finish the Regional Phenomena of the Gerudo Desert and then talk to Cara inside the jewelry and Accessories shop (-3852, -2879, 0043).

She will tell you about the shop owner, Isha, who went to Toruma Dunes and never returned. This will start the quest and add it to your journal. Toruma Dunes is west of Gerudo Town, and we have a map marked for your convenience.

How to complete The Missing Owner Quest in Zelda: TotK

To complete The Missing Owner side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, we recommend that you prepare first as you will be venturing into Molduga’s territory.

It is one of the most difficult bosses in the whole game and can one-shot you easily. Increase your health by either completing shrines or cooking meals/elixirs that grant temporary hearts.

Sleep at an inn that gives you extra health and stamina. Purchase and equip the Desert Voe armor to survive the blistering heat of the Gerudo Desert.

Stock up on arrows, bomb flowers, and dazzlefruit. Once all the preparations are done, fast travel to the Soryotanog Shrine, on top of the Gerudo Town. This shrine is on a high platform, and you will get the advantage of gliding through most of the way.

Now, move towards the rising smoke of the campfire in the West. As you approach the campfire, you will find a person on a rock (-4771, -2827, 0034) with Molduga circling the area.

The person in question is Isha, and she won’t leave until you defeat Molduga. As Molduga is attracted to sounds, this is your best chance to defeat it.

Don’t leave the platform, as Molduga is nearly invincible if you fight it standing on the sand. Throw a time bomb or any other item to attract Molduga. Once it lunges on the item from below, either hit with a Bomb Arrow or Dazzle Arrow.

Both attacks will stun Molduga for a short time. This is your chance. You can either go close and hit Molduga with your strongest weapon or hit it with Bomb Arrows from afar. Fire Arrows work great, too.

Once Molduga is defeated, Isha will talk to you and return to town. Return to Gerudo Town with the help of the Soryotanog Shrine. Go back to the jewelry shop and talk to Isha and Cara there.


Cara will thank you for saving her friend’s life and reward you with a Diamond. We recommend holding onto it as it will be required for the next quest, Pride of the Gerudo.

This will complete The Missing Owner side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
