Did a little poking around and via comments elsewhere it looks like the missile could have been a test shot from San Nicolas Island which just happens to be a missile test facility run by the Air Force, which would nicely explain why Vandenburg said they didn't put anything up and the Navy said they did no launches either. Its a lot less scary a concept than a foreign nation letting one off the chain near our border (and well within the 200 mile buffer zone) but the simplest explanation seems to be the right one in many cases.
