Search for missing man in Annadel State Park scaled back
SONOMA Co., Calif. —
The search for a Sacramento man missing in Annadel State Park since Saturday has been scaled back, a Sonoma police lieutenant said this afternoon.
Jason Kyles abandoned his Ford pickup around 9 a.m. Saturday after he drove through a gate onto private property and had a brief conversation with a woman who lived there, Lt. Brett Sackett said.
He was last seen naked and chanting by a hiker on Saturday, Sackett said.
Search and rescue teams from Sonoma, Marin, Alameda and Contra Costa counties searched the park east of Santa Rosa until early Sunday morning.
Kyles' family and a Sonoma County search and rescue team were still searching today, Sackett said.
Kyles' mother told authorities her son stopped taking his medical marijuana, Sackett said. The family said he is despondent, and in a note said he was heading to New York to visit his family, Sackett said.
Footprints and a handprint found Tuesday in an area of the park that leads to the Oakmont retirement community indicated Kyles might have been heading toward homes in that area.
Searchers combed the complex but found no trace of the missing man, according to Sackett.
Searchers today are focusing on the areas of Lake Ilsanjo and the Warren Richardson and Canyon trails, Sackett said.
Kyles is 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes and was wearing a T-shirt, blue jeans, black and orange shoes and a heavy, tan canvas jacket.
Anyone with information about him is asked to call the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office at (707) 565-2650.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
