On Friday March 10, 2017 at about 8:43 p.m. the Humboldt
County Sheriff’s Communications Center received a 911 call from a female
subject. The female caller stated she and three other females were traveling in
their Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle on a rural road following the directions
provided by their G.P.S. when they became stuck in the snow and mud. The
females reported they were walking away from their vehicle. The females were
instructed to return and stay with their vehicle.
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center
was able to determine a G.P.S. location of the subjects with the assistance of
the female subject’s cell phone provider. The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office
Special Services Division was notified. A Special Services Deputy and a Posse
member responded in a four wheel drive and located the females safe and sound
in the Stapp Road and Rattlesnake Ridge Road area. The Deputy was able to free
the females’ vehicle from the mud allowing them to drive out on their own.
The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind people to know
their route prior to departure and tell someone of their intended route. Bring
plenty of warm clothing, water and some food in case you are stuck due to
adverse weather and road conditions. If you do find your vehicle is stuck or
disabled, stay with your vehicle unless all other options are exhausted as
vehicles are easier to locate than people.
Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding
this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s
Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539
