Help sought to find man missing from Nevada County campground

The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in locating a 69-year-old man reported missing in the Jackson Meadows area.

Jerome Barr, an employee of California Land Management, was reported missing about 12:30 p.m. Monday. He lives in employee housing at the Woodcamp Campground at the south end of Jackson Meadows Campground. Barr reportedly left the complex between 12:30 and 1 p.m. Sunday en route to Logger Campground at Stampede Reservoir in Sierra County.

Witnesses told authorities that before he left, Barr was disoriented and possibly affected by the heat, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. He did not arrive at his intended destination. Sheriff’s officials said an air search for Barr was conducted with negative results.

Barr is described as 6 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing about 210 pounds, with gray hair and blue eyes. He may be wearing blue jeans and a blue button-down shirt.

He was last seen driving a white 2013 Nissan Frontier pickup with a beige, burgundy and green stripe on the lower panel, and the “Tahoe Recreation” logo on the door. The license plate number is either 67354M1 or 67350M1.

Anyone with information regarding Barr’s whereabouts is asked to call the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 265-1471.
