Linnea Lomax search turns up as-yet-unidentified remains along the American River
The search for missing 19-year-old Linnea Lomax uncovered human remains near the shore of the American River Friday morning, according to a press release.
The remains discovered by volunteers have not been identified, and the Sacramento Police Department is currently conducting investigations, the release stated.
Lomax disappeared June 26 from an outpatient clinic near the 800 block of Howe Ave. Since then, searchers have continued to comb the area. The search has continually expanded, with searchers recently searching in the Placerville area.
Family members plan to hold a press conference sometime within the next 24 hours to discuss more details.
Lomax is described as a 5-foot-2-inch, 100-pound woman with long curly blonde hair.
A $10,000 reward is being offered to anyone who provides information that directly leads to the safe return of Linnea Lomax to her family or to the custody of law enforcement.
Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department at (530) 621-6600 or the family tip line at (916) 905-HELP. Tips can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
