Humboldt County Sheriff’s Detectives located Robert Sears alive and well at a Eureka Hotel on Broadway 09-23-2011, around noon. The Sheriffs Office had received a missing person’s report, along with second hand reports that Sears was possibly a homicide victim. Those reports have been determined to be unfounded.
Sheriff’s Detectives were able to locate Sears after several leads came into the Sheriffs Office from the public after his photograph appeared in the media. The Sheriffs Office would like to thank the public and media for their assistance.
