Missing Person Investigation in Korbel

SIMMONS

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a missing person’s case after a Berkeley woman’s vehicle was found abandoned on a logging road.

On Sept. 24, 2020, at about 8:30 p.m., an employee of a timber company notified the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office that he had discovered a vehicle belonging to 75-year-old Betty Baxter Simmons abandoned on Snow Camp Road near Korbel. The employee found a note on the vehicle’s window with instructions to “Tow to Berkeley”.

Deputies arrived at the location and observed evidence that the vehicle may have become stuck on the road after trying to turn around at a locked gate. It appeared that the vehicle may have been stuck there for some time. Inside the vehicle deputies located Simmons’ personal belongings. A search of the surrounding area for Simmons or any evidence of where she may have gone was conducted with no results.

Upon further investigation, deputies learned that Simmons was reportedly last seen around Sept. 5, 2020 by a neighbor in Berkeley. Simmons reportedly told the neighbor that she would be going on a short trip. Simmons has reportedly not returned to her residence since that time.

Betty Simmons is described as a 75-year-old white female, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, 156 pounds, with grey hair and hazel eyes.

This case is still under investigation.

Anyone with information about Simmons’ whereabouts is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
