PLACER COUNTY-

Placer County Sheriff’s deputies are on the lookout for a missing 76-year-old man from Colfax.

Ronald Russell’s family reported him missing Tuesday at noon, and saw him last the previous morning. Russell was last seen leaving his home on Sylvan Road on foot.

He’s been known to hitchhike to Colfax and Grass Valley.

His family is concerned because he has no money or identification, and his home is in a remote area outside of town.

Russell may appear to be confused, deputies say. He has gray hair that is sometimes combed back and was last seen wearing a black or tan jacket, black cargo pants and black sneakers.

If you see Russell, give the Sheriff’s Office a call at (530) 886-5375.
