[UPDATE: He’s Home] Loleta Mom Searching for Runaway Son

Dillian Staack16-year-old Dillian Staack has been missing since Thursday. His mother Rebecca Harrington said the at-risk teenager ran away on foot from her Loleta home while the Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were there.

“He thought he was in trouble with the law,” she said. “But he’s not. We just want him to know we’re worried about him and love him. We want him to come home.”

Dillian has been known to frequent Hoopa, Arcata, and Southern Humboldt. He may be in the company of a 20-year-old woman.

“He could be anywhere in the county,” said his mom.

If you have any information, please call Rebecca Harrington at (707) 599-8599 or contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department.

UPDATE: Dillian is home.



  • On my way home from work yesterday around 5:30pm , I was south bound on 101 when I noticed 3 young people (2 girls and 1 male I think) taking a path up from the north bound freeway. It would have been the backside of the Bear River reservation housing. I thought it was very suspicious, one of the females was wearing pajama pants and wrapped up in a blanket. It was like someone dropped them off on the freeway and they were sneaking back home. Hope that information helps.

    Please go home! No matter what you think is bad right now I promise you in a year it’s going to be in the past and not that bad! We all are guilty of reacting in the moment and making split second decisions to choose to do the wrong thing and later question yourself why you put so many people in worry, pain or agony for that little situation that felt so big! Please remember that your parents will love and forgive you like no one else ever will when it comes to their own children! (Human nature) it’s cold, stormy and you are 14 years old and don’t belong on the streets and especially with a 20 year old woman! Please just go home and get the sadness and hugging over with because I can almost promise those will be happy tears on your mamas face from relief you’re ok rather than ones from being angry!! Much love and prayers

  • He’s likely in seventh heaven, at 16 runnin around with a 20 year old chick.I learned a lot of things those nights back then wouldn’t trade it for anything lol.At least call your parents and let em know your fine just taking an evening class on birds and bees .

  • Dillion, please go home. I went through this with my children and it hurts so bad. Your momma is so worried about you!!!
    It’s been three days now and I promise you those three days feel like FOREVER to your mom.
    You’re not in trouble son.
    If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for your mom. I gurantee she has become very ill since you’ve been missing. Our children are our lives, our world; the reason that we breathe !!
    Please. ….. Please go see Mike, talk, eat, & go home to momma!!!
    I will be praying for you and your mom.
