Officials with the Shasta County Sheriff's Office say the father of 6-month-old Ember Graham is now considered a person of interest in her disappearance, and they are asking for the public's help finding her.
Matthew Graham was arrested on a probation violation Thursday night and is being held in the Shasta County Jail without bail. The violation stems from Graham's failure to disclose prescription medications, according to the sheriff's office. His probation stems from a DUI conviction and forgery conviction.
Matthew Graham reported Ember missing from her crib Thursday morning. She was reportedly last seen by Matthew, at approximately 11:00 p.m. Wednesday.
Matthew told investigators that the door to his residence was open when he discovered Ember missing, but investigators say there have been inconsistencies in his story.
Sheriff's investigators have released a photo of Matthew Graham's pickup truck and are asking anyone who has seen the truck parked or driving in the Clear Creek Rd area on Wednesday evening, July 1 to come forward.
The truck is a 1990 dark blue, full-size extra cab, Chevrolet fleet side pickup with flat black paint on the side panels, black rims, no license plates, and a cow bell hanging underneath the front bumper.
Shasta County Secret Witness is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who provides information that leads to the whereabouts of 6-month-old Ember Graham.
Anyone with information is asked to call (530) 229-8209.
