Today, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office assisted by other searchers including a cadaver dog searched an area in Southeastern Humboldt for a missing person. According to Lt. Ken Swithenbank, “We got a lead on a 2009 missing person case [and] followed up in the Alderpoint area. We searched an area that we got a tip on but weren’t able to locate anything related to a case.”

At this time, law enforcement is unwilling to confirm where they got the tip and who the missing person was.
