    Strange story, but thought it was worth posting here. Unfortunately the only article I've found so far doesn't list much information about him including his age, but Steve Pease is missing from Roseville CA. The video says a missing person's report has also been filed in Fort Bragg, CA (roughly 4 hours away from Roseville).

    Steve is the owner of Sammy Hagar's restaurant in Roseville called "Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar and Grill." They don't give an age, but I'm guessing 50s? ETA: I found some older articles about the restaurant itself and it says he owns the property and is a "local developer," so I'm a little fuzzy on if he owns the restaurant or not, but he's definitely closely tied to it.

    According to the story below, "Steve Pease hasn't been seen for weeks, and now, Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar and Grill has been shut down."

    There's not much to it, but here's a Facebook for the restaurant: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sammys-Rockin-Island-Bar-Grill/361312937269710.

    I haven't been there personally but friends in the Roseville area have and I know it's a pretty popular place. The restaurant's website is down and the restaurant is currently closed due to "unforeseen circumstances."

    I found a FB that I think belongs to Steve but I'm not 100% sure, so I'll hold off on linking it for now. If it's the right page, the guy looks really familiar to me - I think my husband may know him. I'll have to ask tomorrow if he knows more info. I hope there's more info out there somewhere about Steve. Out of everything I've found so far there's not a whole lot to go on - no description, not even an age, but his family must be concerned because they've filed missing persons reports in two different cities. So strange.

    ^^ I am not seeing anything about "less than stellar reputation" around the business. It seems like it was a big part of revitalizing the downtown area.

    Starting to get some more news coverage. Note that this articles says his name is Stephen Pease, and that he was last seen on October 25.

    http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2013...ille-restaurant-temporarily-closes-its-doors/


    There is a picture of Mr. Pease in this article about the construction of the restaurant:
    http://www.thepresstribune.com/photos/sammy’s-rockin’-island-bar-and-grill-nears-completion

    Now trying to link directly to the picture. The caption with the pictures says that he is the man standing the center. Online searches show that he is in his mid to late 50's.

    Thanks all for the additional info! I wanted to search more today but I'm currently late for an appointment. I'm very glad to see more info about him. I look forward to diving in more later.

    My appointment's actually in Roseville, so maybe I'll swing by the restaurant area on my way back and see if there's any more info around (posters etc.). Weird story.

    I don't know much about the restaurant itself except that it's an extension of the Sammy Hagar restaurant "line." He has the very successful Cabo Wabo Cantina up in South Lake Tahoe as well. I only know what friends and family who live/work out there have told me, but they said it's been really popular. My Dad says it's "too loud" even outside lol... but that probably means it's attracting a good crowd. Sammy Hagar was just there in September for the new Roseville Town Square opening, and IIRC he got some kind of thank you from the city for his efforts (more here... not exactly typical MSM but I hope it's acceptable: http://celebrityexaminer.com/2013/08/29/sammy-hagar-returns-roseville/).

    Shoot, I so want to keep digging into this but I really have to get going. Hopefully we can continue to find more info.

    Comments under an article and Yelp reviews are not considered MSM. Reviewers at other food and entertainment sites, which are considered to be more reliable, give the restaurant basically middle to high ratings. I still think the "less than stellar reputation" comment is harsh.

    Many thanks to whoever updated Steve/Stephen's name on this thread. It sounds like he mostly goes by Stephen, at least professionally.

    Here's one more article I found: http://www.kcra.com/news/local-news...suite&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_campaign=kcra+3

    I did drive by there after my appointment in Roseville today but didn't see much other than I can confirm it's currently closed.

    A little from the above article: "Sammy Hagar, the former lead singer of Van Halen, licensed his name to be used for the restaurant but is not one one of its owners.

    Scott Alvord, president of the Downtown Roseville Merchants Association, who owns another restaurant across the street from Sammy's, said Pease's business appeared to be doing well.

    "He's just very well respected and very trusted," Alvord said. "He's made a lot of good decisions down here in helping the community out, helping other businesses get started.""


    On a personal note this guy looks very familiar to me. I'm almost sure I've met him, and I think my husband has worked on one or more of his cars before.

    I'm so confused by the different dates and even locations of the mission person reports. I mean Fort Bragg is less than a day's drive from Roseville, but why would he be reported both places and why the delay?

    No, I didn't mean to imply that they were MSM, that's why I did not include a direct link, same with facebook. Personally I depend a lot on Yelp reviews on a local level and they seem fairly accurate. JMO but when I read about developers and city revitalization my hinky meter goes off due to past experience. This all just sounds so oddly familiar. I hope things work out for everyone involved.

    He does look very familiar, doesn't he? Here's a Fort Bragg news link with some more information about when he was no longer in contact with family and when he was actually last seen.

    I don't know much about Onstar. Is it unusual for it not to respond like this? What could cause it to not send a signal? The missing Chevy Captiva has Oregon plates, 500 GKN.

    No signal from the car; did they call? And how is it not "sending out a signal" unless he ripped it out; cut the wires and that wouldn't be hard to do. This is looking more and more like a vol runaway. Was the business in the rears?

    This article, which was already posted, says that the business was doing good, but he might be having some personal financial problems.

    http://fox40.com/2013/11/12/rosevil...amily-reports-owner-as-missing/#ixzz2kX3VGcUk

    This article says the car might be in a parking garage or in a remote area without a signal. http://www.sacbee.com/2013/11/12/5904662/roseville-restaurant-owner-missing.html

    The article says that the Roseville police are not investigating, so that might account for why there are two missing reports - Maybe because friends are trying to get LE to start an investigation?

    So hopefully the rental car is either in a parking garage or in a remote area without OnStar service. That means Stephen isn't using that car to travel thru any kind of towns with service. Here's an OnStar coverage map. There are a lot of areas of limited service along the west coast.

    FWIW, This article says the car was rented in Portland. http://www.sacbee.com/2013/11/12/5904662/roseville-restaurant-owner-missing.html

    So he was in Las Vegas on Oct. 28, Ft. Bragg, CA on Nov. 2 to Nov. 3. and in Portland, Oregon at some point. There are casinos near Ft. Bragg and in the Portland area.

    I don't think he's the sole owner of the development company is he? I wonder how that was doing?

    I agree with LE this sounds like voluntary missing, but that doesn't mean to say he's safe and well. There's a lot of wilderness in Oregon where a vehicle could be parked off road for months and not be seen.

    Just at first glance, the hotel he stayed at in Fort Bragg seems like a kind of 'get away from it all place'. For someone seeking solitude and quiet, rather than gambling or nightlife? They welcome pets - is there a missing dog in this case too?

    Oh wow. A $1.5 million loan to start the business, with repayments due to start June, after an 18 month grace period. I wonder how much they were per month?

    And that was from a community pot of just $5 million, with the whole area pinning their hopes of regeneration starting, on this particular restaurant. Huge fanfare. There is a business partner who declined to comment, it's not sole ownership. No pressure there then.

    Most business fail in the first 12 months, on average. Those that survive, generally don't turn a profit. I wonder if the accounts are up to date and submitted on time? I would have thought if a business was doing okay, a person would be able to keep up their house repayments.
