    $10K reward for Sonora man
    By John Holland
    jholland@modbee.com

    SONORA The family of Darvis Lee Jr., who has been missing since Oct. 19, is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his return.

    Lee, 36, made headlines in 2008, when he fell 100 feet into an abandoned gold mine near Sonora and was rescued after 32 hours.

    His father, Darvis Lee Sr., said his son's car was found in the Quail Mine area near Columbia on Oct. 22, but no other trace has surfaced. Lee Sr. said he doubts his son would have gone near another mine shaft.

    Lee Sr. said his son had marital problems but was planning to complete studies to become an X-ray technician.

    "It's bewildering," he said. "The local sheriff said they have never seen anything like this situation."

    The Tuolumne County Sheriff's Department has used dogs to search for the missing man but has not reported any leads.

    Lee Jr. is about 6 feet tall and weighs about 205 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

    People with information about Darvis Lee Jr. should call the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Department at 533-5815.

    Last year, his mother wrote a book about Darvis. A very touching article about her search.

    http://seniorfan.com/2014/09/a-mothe...h-for-answers/

    She has trooped through thickets of manzanita and poison oak, around junk cars, past piles of rotting garbage and into the rundown lairs of drug dealers, ****s and ex-cons living on civilization’s ragged edge.

    For the better part of four years, this 54-year-old Sonora woman has been lied to, threatened and told to get lost by the denizens of these brush-choked, off-the-grid hovels in the hills and canyons northeast of Columbia.

    But she and her husband have also collected nuggets of truth – and met caring people who helped along the way – in what has been an unrelenting quest for justice and closure.

    “I just want to know where my son is and who is responsible for his death,” says Sandy Lee.
