Searchers Comb Area Where Missing Man Last Seen
Today, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department, their Search and Rescue Team, and Southern Humboldt Technical Rescue scoured the area surrounding where Ivan Linan, a Spanish national went missing after an apparent mental health episode on November 29.
“We had 18 search and rescue personnel,” said Diana Totten, a spokesperson for Southern Humboldt County Technical Rescue. “We conducted a very thorough search and were unable to locate Ivan Linan at this time…It seems like he is not where he got out of the vehicle. The Sheriff’s Department has searched several times.”
Totten believes Linan may have left the area where he went missing, but still be somewhere as far away as Southern Humboldt or Arcata. He may even have left the area entirely, but she is hopeful that, with the public’s help, he might be located. “It will be people out on the street that will find him,” said Totten.
She said the search for the missing man will continue. “The Sheriff’s Department will be investigating further any information that could lead to where he might be.”
If you have any information, please contact the Sheriff’s Department at (707) 445-7251.
