Jan. 31, 2012 — Law enforcement officials from Lassen and Plumas County as well as both counties search and rescue teams are putting together an in-depth search for Richard Earl Welton, 54, a Janesville man last seen around Jan. 19.

According to a press release from the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office, woodcutters contacted a United States Forest Service Law Enforcement officer near Antelope Summit on Janesville Grade in Plumas County on Thursday, Jan. 26 and reported they found an abandoned white Ford F-150 extra cab pickup on a dirt road.

A check of the vehicle’s registration revealed the vehicle was registered to Welton. The officer attempted to contact Welton at his Janesville residence but Welton was not there.

The officer reported Welton’s abandoned vehicle and his attempt to contact Welton to the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office. The PCSO, along with personnel from the Plumas County Search and Rescue team immediately began to search for Walton around the area the vehicle was found.

Six separate teams, including scent-detecting K-9s were utilized to conduct the search. After a two-day search, the teams were unable to locate any trace of Welton.

On Sunday, Jan. 29, the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the PCSO began an investigation into Welton’s disappearance.
