Roseville police and family members are asking for the public’s help finding a 32-year-old autistic man who has been missing since April 26.

Samuel Stratton-Brooks had been staying with his mother at the Heritage Inn on Harding Boulevard in Roseville just before his disappearance, according to Angela Robinson, a family member. She said he is from Grass Valley and also has lived in Colfax.

Stratton-Brooks is considered at-risk due to autism and other developmental issues and has never lived on his own, Robinson said. Family members have talked with people on trails near the Heritage Inn and at Loaves and Fishes in Sacramento. Robinson said several people told them he looked familiar.

Stratton-Brooks is described as white, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds, with long black hair, green eyes and a tattoo on his wrist. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, white T-shirt and baggy pants.

Robinson said the family is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to Stratton-Brooks being found. Anyone with information can call her at 916-532-3427.

Roseville police ask anyone who sees Stratton-Brooks to call their local law enforcement agency so an officer can check on him to make sure he is OK.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts, but who does not have him in sight, is asked to call Roseville police CSO Investigator Kim Crawford at 916-774-5068 or email her a
