Released By: Brenda Gainey

Location: McKinleyville

McKinleyville resident Karen Brink has been located. Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputies, with the assistance of a Eureka PD canine unit, had been searching for Brink since about 1:00 this morning when she showed up at a McKinleyville residence bleeding and disoriented. However, she had left the area prior to the deputies’ arrival.

At about 9:00 this morning a relative of Brink called the Sheriff’s Office to report that Brink was at a home in Fieldbrook. A deputy made contact with Brink. She reportedly had been intoxicated earlier this morning and had self-inflicted injuries. The deputy determined that she was no longer a threat to herself and the investigation was concluded.
