Somebody’s Son Is Missing; Can you help?
A homeless man last called his mother the day after he got out of the Humboldt County Jail on December 13. She hasn’t heard from him since even though she has posted on social media and put up flyers.
Austin Cade Brown, age 42, is 5’8″ and 145 pounds. When last seen he had long hair and a panther tattoo on his abdomen.
According to his mom, when he called in December he told her that “a nice lady on the bus let him use her phone to call me. He was on his way to McKinleyville and would call in a couple of days.”
Brown had hung around the McKinleyville area for the last several years. So family and friends have put up posters in the area looking for him with no response. A Facebook page has been started with no positive results either.
“Even though homeless he called me at least every 10 days or so,” his mom Vicki Anderson reports. “He has never failed to keep in touch as he knows I worry. No word over the holidays or his birthday.”
Anderson explained, “I am aware of the danger out there and wonder if he is hurt so that his mind is affected in some way. He tends toward depression and does drink, mostly why he ends up in jail.”
Anderson is desperate to find her son. If you can help, please contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251.
