Thursday, July 26th will mark one month since 19year old Linnea Lomax, a firstyear student at the University of California, Davis, walked away from an outpatient mental health clinic and disappeared into the streets of Sacramento. Neither Law Enforcement nor any of her friends and family have seen or heard from her since. The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department continues to actively pursue leads in this case and has classified Lomax as “at risk.” Thus far, they have been unable to confirm any of the many possible sightings.
A $10,000 reward is being offered to anyone who provides information that directly leads to the safe return of Linnea Lomax to her Family or to the custody of Law Enforcement. An open letter from her parents, Craig and Marianne Lomax of Placerville, CA, was published in the Sacramento Bee on July 12th in an effort to make contact with LInnea or someone who may know where she is.
Lomax was a happy outgoing freshman college student until a couple months ago when her friends and family began to notice something seemed wrong. By the middle of June college friends and her roommate were worried enough to contact her RA. Her parents also became alarmed and eventually convinced Lomax to withdraw from school and seek medical help. She visited her family doctor and a psychologist who recommended her immediate transfer to a mental health hospital. Lomax received 10 days of voluntary inpatient care at a local hospital, and was then released with instructions to continue medication and attend therapy at an outpatient mental health facility. She walked away from the outpatient clinic on Howe Ave.
Tuesday, June 26th midway through her first fullday appointment. Lomax was last seen wearing green skinny jeans, a black sweatshirt with the word “Sweden” written across it in red letters, and flipflops. The teen suffers from a recent onset mental illness and is without her medication, wallet, and cell phone. All persons with information regarding this case are asked to call (916) 905HELP or email email@example.com.
