    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Paul Head was last seen at his family's residence in San Luis Obispo, he lived with his parents at the time.
    He indicated that he was going camping near Sportsman Lake, in the Sierra National Forest in Northern California. He was going with an acquaintance who stated he left the campsite the following evening and left Paul there. It was their first time camping together, but Head had camped in the area before.

    According to his companion, Paul took off his shoes and pants and ran into the woods near Dinky Creek, clad only in his underwear and a sweat shirt. He appeared to be agitated and in need of medical assistance. The companion said he searched for Head for a short time before giving up. He returned to the campsite, thinking his friend would be coming back. When Head failed to return, the friend hiked out of the area and contacted authorities. He told authorities that he and Head had taken alcoholic beverages on the camping trip but had run out before Head took off.

    Authorities conducted an intensive air, ground and underwater search when Head was reported missing.
    Investigators have not ruled out any explanation for Head's disappearance, including homicide.
    Head worked as a breakfast cook at the Big Sky Cafe in San Luis Obispo at the time. He is described as very pleasant, intelligent, friendly, and even-tempered.

    This was the second call we had received to go on this search. The report said that on Wednesday night, 8 September, two men had camped at Sportsman Lake, smoking pot and drinking rum, when they had an altercation. The report stated that Paul Matthew Head had fallen into the lake at the 9500-foot level. He was barefoot and wearing only boxer shorts.


    Can't connect to NamUs at this time because of my ISP here, will update later if he is there.

    There are two archived articles that are pay-per-view at the Fresno Bee.

    Paul has been missing almost 11 years. Come home soon.
