Father of missing UC Davis student says he hopes El Dorado sheriffs bring new energy to the search

By Anita Creamer

The father of a 19-year-old UC Davis student from Placerville says he hopes that the transfer of her missing persons case from authorities in Sacramento County to the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office Department on Wednesday will bring new energy to the search.

"It's always a worry, will my daughter get left out because she falls between jurisdictional cracks," said Craig Lomax.

His daughter, Linnea Lomax, went missing on June 26 when she left a Howe Avenue mental health facility after 10 days of inpatient therapy. More than 750 people have helped in the search for the university freshman, who the family said had suffered a breakdown several weeks ago while preparing for final exams.

In a statement released Wednesday morning, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said that it was turning over the case to the Lomaxes' home jurisdiction because there's no evidence the missing woman was the victim of foul play, confirmed abduction or kidnapping in Sacramento County.
