The Shasta County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help locating a 61-year-old Jones Valley man who has been missing since Thursday.
Charles "Buzz" Orr is described as at-risk because he has reportedly expressed suicidal thoughts and shown signs of depression since retiring from his longtime job.
Orr reportedly walked away from his home on Bollibokka Way in Jones Valley on Thursday and has not been seen since. Family members say he had spoken of going to the French Gulch area to gold pan, but when he left home, he did not take his vehicle.
Orr is 6 feet 2 inches, and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt, work boots and carrying a black leather backpack.
Anyone with information on Orr's whereabouts is asked to call the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.
