A vehicle linked to a Cameron Park man who was reported missing more than a week ago was found Tuesday in Calaveras County. But what happened to 53-year-old Scott Kerfoot remains a mystery.

El Dorado County sheriff’s officials are asking the public’s help in finding Kerfoot, who left a friend’s house in Modesto the afternoon of July 25 en route to his home in Cameron Park.

Kerfoot, who was driving a white 1999 Isuzu box truck, never arrived home. Sheriff’s officials said a missing person’s report was filed, and information regarding Kerfoot and his vehicle was made available to other law enforcement agencies.

Tuesday, a passerby in the area of West Point in Calaveras County notified the California Highway Patrol that a white box truck was blocking a U.S. Forest Service road. The CHP responded and confirmed that the box truck was the one Kerfoot was believed to have been driving.

With the assistance of the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office and the CHP, ground and air searches were conducted in the area where the truck was located, but Kerfoot was not found.

Kerfoot is described as white, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 215 pounds, and bald with brown eyes.

Anyone with information regarding Kerfoot’s whereabouts, or who has seen him or the vehicle, is asked to call Detective R. Horn with the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office at 530-642-4729, or email, or call Detective D. Sanchez with the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office at 209-754-6500, or email
