[UPDATE: Called Family] Man Missing in Humboldt May Have ‘gotten in trouble with dangerous people’
UPDATE: Michael Mitchell has contacted family.
Original post: Michael Raymond Mitchell has been missing in Humboldt County for over a month. According to his brother, Mitchell left his home in Redding, CA on April 3rd “to work with his friend, Will, in Humboldt County somewhere, but has been out of contact since April 25th.”
Mitchell’s brother wrote, “His phone has been shut off, and we have no way to contact his “friend” with whom he had been working.”
Mitchell’s family is worried about his safety. According to his brother, “We are afraid he has gotten into trouble with dangerous people. A few years ago he had a breakdown and was delusional and paranoid for a period of time. We are worried that he may have lapsed into such an episode wherever he may be.”
Mitchell is 39 years old, and his brother explained that his hair has thinned more since the photo was taken. If anyone happens to see him, please contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at 707 445-7251. Please reference Case # 201602810.
UPDATE 6:50 p.m. Monday: Michael Mitchell has contacted his family. He is all right and the people he is with are “actually very nice.”
