    Investigators have learned that Merrill used his credit card at the McCloud Chevron, in McCloud, (Siskiyou County) on Thursday 9/4/14, after checking out of the McCloud Hotel.

    Witnesses reported seeing Merrill's silver 1956 Mercedes (LIC # EZX295 CA) leaving the gas station parking lot, driving toward McCloud Lake. A photo of Merrill from a security camera at the gas station shows Merrill was wearing a cream colored shirt, khaki colored slacks and light brown shoes.

    Police also released a photo of Merrill and his car at a Belmont gas station on Wednesday 9/3/14, prior to his trip.
    McCloud is over 300 miles north of Belmont, straight up I-5 and then exiting east toward national forest areas. Lake McCloud is about 20 minutes southeast of the Chevron.

    Geez, I hope they find him. So many things to worry about.

    Then, on Sept. 5, a woman saw Merrill’s car, a silver 1956 Mercedes convertible, on the side of the road about 15 miles east of McCloud — but didn’t think much of it.

    The next day, the woman’s husband saw a man matching Merrill’s description in the woods near that area, Halleran said. They didn’t put things together, he said, until they saw reports of Merrill going missing Monday.


    They phoned in a tip. Authorities in Siskiyou County went out looking for him on Tuesday, but couldn’t find him.

    The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Department has had a search-and-rescue operation looking for Merrill since Wednesday, said Allison Giannini, a spokeswoman for the agency.

    The car belonging to a missing Belmont man was found hidden in thick brush outside the small town of Burney in Shasta County, police said.

    The 1956 Mercedes SL190 owned by 87-year-old Paul Merrill was discovered Thursday, Belmont police said, by a rancher clearing brush off a dirt road on his 500-acre property. The car, which appeared to have been sitting in the brush for some time, also had Merrill's wallet and car keys in it, police added.

    A new search for the missing Belmont man began Friday morning in the heavily wooded area that includes steep terrain and rough roads.

    On Saturday the search for Merrill continued. After a day of searching, human remains were found about 100 yards away from where the Mercedes was found in rugged terrain.

    Deputies said the remains are presumed to be Merrill's but they cannot say for sure that they are.

    The remains were turned over to the Shasta County Coroner's Office for further investigation and identification.

    The Shasta County Coroner’s Office has identified the human remains found Saturday in a remote area north of Big Bend as those of Paul Merrill, the 87-year-old Bay Area man who was last seen in early September.
