    CA - Todd Lucchesi, 28, Downieville, 31 May 1999



    http://www.mercedsunstar.com/2014/06...f-reopens.html

    Sierra County Sheriff John Evans reopened a missing person’s case that has produced no leads in 15 years.

    Todd E. Lucchesi, born in 1970 in Fremont, was reported missing by his family on June 1, 1999. He was visiting a family cabin in Sierra City when he disappeared, Evans said.

    “Despite an exhaustive search by numerous agencies, friends, family members and citizen volunteers, no sign of Todd has been found,” he said.
    Todd is described as a white male, 5'5" tall and 135 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

    Reading his DoeNetwork profile I'm wondering if he drowned in the Yuba River (voluntarily or accidentally) and hasn't been found.

    Trackers traced his steps to the edge of the north fork of the Yuba River near Sierra City. He apparently walked to the river and disappeared.

    A dog tracked Lucchesi's scent to a house near his family's summer home, then to a spot 5 feet from the river's edge where the scent went cold. A human tracker and two more dogs tracked Lucchesi to about the same spot.

    Lucchesi was reported missing on on June 3, a day after his brothers returned to the family cabin and found him gone.

    Does the Yuba River flow out into San Francisco Bay (albeit through over tributaries and major rivers)? There's an unidentified case in Namus which I consider to be a strong potential match found in Tiburon in August 1999.

    I do not know the answer to your question, Tuck. I guess it wouldn't hurt to submit this strong potential match though.

    This is the case I was referring to earlier. Hoping to get a response soon as to whether they are a match.
