SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department says it appears a missing UC Davis student is voluntarily “missing.”
Deputies have been searching for 19-year-old Linnea Lomax since June 26 when she was seen leaving an outpatient therapy center off Howe Avenue in the Sacramento area.
“I think people call it a nervous breakdown. I don’t know if that’s the technical term for it, but she just got so stressed she broke down,” her father Craig Lomax told CBS13 last week.
Linnea’s family was so worried they pulled her out of school right before finals and put her into a mental health hospital for 10 days. Just a day after being released, she disappeared.
The Sacramento Sheriff’s department says it has done its due diligence in trying to find Linnea, but they believe she is choosing to stay away from friends and family.
Deputies have handed over the case to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department, based on the fact that Linnea is an El Dorado County resident.
