Man Missing Near Trinity Pines Fire


Dustin Martin’s family and friends worry they might never see him again. Martin, age 44, was last known to be camping in the Post Mountain area of Trinity County during July. Although Martin disappeared before the lightning storm started, the resulting fires as well as the road closures and evacuations have impacted the ability of law enforcement and family members to search.

According to Heather Miller working with the Nor Cal Alliance for the Missing, the missing man has not contacted anyone since July 20th. An individual looking for Martin discovered his campsite unattended. His dog was there and so was his wallet and cell phone, Miller said.

Martin is 5’10” tall and weighs approximately 140 pounds. He has brown eyes, a brown and grey goatee, and long brown hair streaked with gray.

Anyone with information about the missing man is urged to call the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 623-2611 or the Nor Cal Tipline at (530) 378-4491.


Martin’s campsite was on the north side of Hwy 36. [Screen grab from Google Earth.]
