On Tuesday, March 7, 2017, at about 8:15 pm the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Communications Center received a 911 call from a male subject, age 36. The male caller stated himself and two females ages 39 and 34, were traveling in their vehicle in the Waterman Ridge area, Willow Creek and became stuck in the snow.
Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center was able to determine a GPS location of the subjects with the assistance of the male subject’s cell phone provider. Deputies attempted to respond to the GPS location but were unable to access the road due to multiple downed trees. With the assistance of Caltrans, the trees were cleared from the roadway. Deputies once again attempted to continue towards the GPS location but were unable due to snow levels and the road was impassable.
With the assistance from Humboldt County Special Services and Trinity County Sheriff’s Office personnel, the three subjects were located in good condition and transported to the Eureka area by Deputies.
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.
