Reward for missing teen Linnea Lomax increased to $10,000

The reward for information in the case of missing teen Linnea Lomax has increased to $10,000, according to volunteers with the search effort.

Lomax, a 19-year-old from Placerville, has been missing since she walked away from an out-patient mental health facility on Howe Avenue on June 26. Her family said she was getting treatment after having a mental breakdown while studying for finals at the University of California, Davis.

The most recent possible sightings were reported in Woodland, volunteers report, though she earlier was believed to have been seen near the American River Parkway in Sacramento.

Linnea is 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs about 100 pounds and has curly, long blonde hair. She was last seen wearing green pants, a black sweatshirt with "Sweden" in red letters and flip flops. She has no medication, wallet or phone with her.

On Thursday, her parents, Craig and Marianne Lomax, released an open letter to their daughter expressing their pain and asking that she send them notice that she is safe.

"We love you every second of every day and are praying for you," they wrote in the letter, which can be read in its entirety at "We long for the day that we know you are safe."
