Volunteer search parties needed to find UC Davis student

lomax.JPGMore organized searches begin today for missing college student Linnea Lomax.

People who want to participate in the searches on today, Saturday and Sunday should check in at the Find Linnea search center, 2440 Glendale Lane. Check in times are between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., all three days.

Lomax disappeared after walking away from an out-patient mental health facility, where she had been receiving treatment after she had what her family has described as a breakdown while studying for finals at the University of California, Davis.

Lomax, 19, was last seen June 26 around 1 p.m. on the 800 block of Howe Avenue in Sacramento County. She is described as a white woman, 5 feet 2 inches tall, and 100 pounds. She was last seen wearing faded green pants and a dark hooded sweatshirt with the word "Sweden" on the front.

"It's like she literally vanished," said Marianne Lomas, Linnea's mother.

Lomax's parents requested that the KlaasKids Foundation organize the community volunteer searches.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and show photo identification, according to a KlaasKids Foundation press release. Organizers need volunteers for searches on foot and to work in the center.

Bottled water donations are also needed. For more information call (801) 560-1933 or email
