Police are asking for the public's help in locating a mentally
challenged young man who went missing from his workplace in Santa Cruz on
Donavan Almos, who is in his late 20s, was last seen walking away
from his job at Bay Side Center at 2301 17th Ave. around 12:30 p.m.,
according to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office.
Almos-- who suffers from mental disabilities-- may not appear to be
mentally challenged on first contact "...due to his high level of mental activity," according to sheriff's deputies.
Law enforcement officers have been searching for the man at
locations where he is known to frequent, such as downtown Santa Cruz, the
Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and the Capitola Mall, but have been unable to
locate him, deputies said.
He is described as 6 feet 1 inch tall, and weighs about 190 pounds with
blue eyes and brown hair, according to the sheriff's office. He was last seen
wearing a blue shirt, blue shorts and carrying a backpack.
Anyone with information regarding Almos' whereabouts is asked to
call the sheriff's office at (831) 471-1121.
