More than two months after her disappearance, friends and family of 19-year old UC Davis student Linnea Lomax are still searching for clues to find her.
Lomax disappeared from an outpatient clinic on Howe Avenue in Sacramento June 26, leaving her wallet, cell phone and much-needed medication – but no clues as to where she was headed or why she vanished.
Nearly 90 people gathered Sunday in Placerville to show support and raise community awareness of the search, according to a press release from search organizers.
The crowd wore yellow to symbolize their longing for Lomax’s return and passed out missing posters and yellow ribbons to residents of the teen’s home town, the release said.
Lomax was last seen wearing green skinny jeans, a black sweatshirt with the word “Sweden” written across it in red letters, and flip-flops, according to the press release, and she suffers from a recent onset mental illness. Search warrants served on her social media and bank accounts have failed to turn up any leads.
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.
