GREENVILLE, Calif. - It's been four months since 21-year-old Dominic Potts went missing. 

Plumas County Sheriff deputies say Potts was last seen at a home in Greenville on Nov. 4, 2018. His truck was later found near Chester days later. 

Potts is related to Greta Putnam, the 86-year-old grandmother who was found dead in her Oroville home on Nov. 8. Oroville police handling Putnam's case have called the incident a "brutal" and "disturbing" murder.

Oroville detectives say they have no evidence linking Potts to the crime and would like to know where he is. Moreover, the investigation falls under the Plumas County Sheriff's jurisdiction. Family members insist on Potts' innocence and tell Action News Now they are frustrated they have heard nothing from investigators. 

"Absolutely nothing. This is a kid who loves his mother," said Ron Rhodes. "A day wouldn't go by when she wouldn't hear from him.
So the fact that [we've heard] nothing for four months? Something happened."

A $5,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information on Potts' whereabouts. The public is encouraged to get in touch with the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 283-6300.

Action News Now has reached out to the Plumas County Sheriff's office to learn more about any progress on the investigation. This article will be updated with new developments once we learn more information.
