William Millard who is a Cromberg resident has possibly been missing since the end of September 2017.
Millard’s daughter, Christy Millard, grew concerned about the whereabouts of her father. A neighbor in Cromberg also notified the Plumas County Sheriff’s dispatch that she saw her neighbor’s truck in the woods near Rattlesnake Creek Road several miles from Millard's residence.
A deputy reported that he had talked with another person who knew where the truck was located and was willing to guide him to that location. That individual said that he thought the truck had been there for two or three weeks. It appeared the truck had mechanical issues which rendered it inoperable.
Local hospitals were contacted in an effort to locate Millard. When he wasn’t found, the Sheriff’s Office called out search and rescue to use dogs to search the hillsides and roads in the vicinity where the truck was discovered. There was speculation that Millard may have attempted to walk cross country back to his residence after suffering vehicle troubles. There have been several other attempts to locate Millard until winter weather shut search and rescue operations down.
At this time, the Sheriff’s Office has devoted a lot time and resources to finding Millard. Aside from his truck, they’ve found no sign of the man and have no leads as to his whereabouts. At this time there is no evidence that foul play is a factor.
