    29 July 09

    The search for a missing man across California is focused on the Central Coast.

    Elias Sorokin disappeared more than a week ago and clues are leading police to Santa Cruz. Where his family says he was last seen on July 20th to meet a friend.

    Central Coast News talked to Elias's mother Anna who says that her son is honest, loyal and a non-violent person, who made friends where ever he went and he wouldn't disappear without calling.

    When Elias Sorokin didn't show up for work on July 21st his business partner knew something was wrong.

    and

    Elias Sorokin drives a 2007 beige/gold Toyota Tacoma with a camper shell.

    His California License Plate number is 8H92932.

    Truck of missing L.A. man Elias Sorokin found burned near Bonny Doon

    A pickup belonging to a Los Angeles man missing for more than a week was found burning just off Empire Grade Road late Tuesday, but authorities have not located Elias Sorokin.

    Friends last heard from Sorokin, 29, on July 20, when they think he was driving from Oakland to Santa Cruz to meet an acquaintance. His plans were to return to L.A. the following morning, friends have said.

    Two days later, a couple tried to use his credit card at the Target store in Watsonville and, on Friday, a woman tried to cash a $4,500 check from Sorokin's business at a Santa Cruz bank.

    It appears clear this poor young man is dead and I hope the individuals involved are quickly caught. Watsonville is not very big. They should search the rugged coastline. Bonnie Doon is north of Santa Cruz and Watsonville and is kinda remote. Clealry the individuals involved in this live in or around Santa Cruz. Lots of druggies in the area. It's very hilly too. I haven't seen any suspect descriptions on the news or in the paper. I wonder if they have accessed his cell phone records yet or emails.

    The search for a missing Los Angeles man who may have come to Santa Cruz took on a new dimension Tuesday after police learned he might be involved in "marijuana trafficking."

    A massive wildfire was reported evening of 12 Aug NW of the area where Elias Sorokin's truck was found - wonder if there is a connection - perhaps now that suspects are in custody, someone went back to try and destroy the body by burning and the fire got out of hand. If authorities can find the point of origin, they might find his remains? :waitasec:

    Santa Cruz Police Arrest Third Murder Suspect Adam Hunt

    A 29-year-old Watsonville man was arrested early this morning, the third suspect arrested in connection with the disappearance of a missing Los Angeles man in what is being treated as a homicide investigation, according to Santa Cruz police. Adam Hunt surrendered at the Santa Cruz Police Department at about 12:40 a.m. today and was arrested for his alleged involvement in the
    kidnapping and robbery of Elias Sorokin, who was last seen on July 20, police said. Hunt was arrested after Stewart Skuba and Kenneth Clamp, both 29-year-old Santa Cruz men, were arrested Thursday for their alleged involvement in the kidnapping and robbery of Sorokin, according to police. Santa Cruz police Capt. Steve Clark said Friday that investigators believe Sorokin was kidnapped and robbed during a marijuana deal at a home in the 200 block of Felix Street in Santa Cruz. Based in part on evidence recovered from the home, authorities are treating the case as a homicide investigation, and are continuing to work to
    locate Sorokin...More...
