Yolo County authorities are asking for help locating a Southern California man whose vehicle was found at a county park and whose last contact with family was nearly a week ago.
Rico Omarr Harris, 37, of Alhambra, was believed to have been driving from his mother’s Los Angeles County home to his girlfriend’s residence in Seattle, authorities said. He reportedly began the drive around 1 a.m. Friday, Oct. 10, his mother told Yolo County officials. That morning, he spoke with his mother at 9:45 a.m. as he passed through Sacramento and left a voice-mail with his girlfriend at 10:45 a.m., according to the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office.
The black Nissan sedan he was driving was found Monday at Yolo County’s Cache Creek Regional Park on State Route 16 near Rumsey by a deputy. When the deputy saw the vehicle in the same spot the next day, the deputy began a welfare check.
The department initiated a ground search of the area Tuesday and searched more extensively Wednesday with no success.
Harris is described as African American, 6 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 280 lbs. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call (530) 668-5280.
