SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. – The Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Deputies are seeking the public’s help in locating missing 85-year-old Betty Jane Lobush, who was last seen in May 2019.

Deputies said a relative reported in July 2019 that she had not been seen since May 2019. Lobush has been reported missing in national and state crime data systems, but no reports of her status have been reported to the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Department.

Lobush has been classified in data systems as an “endangered missing person,” according to Siskiyou County Sheriff, Jon Lopey. She was last known to be staying with caregivers in Grenada. The caregivers were questioned and gave various accounts concerning her whereabouts.

Deputies said at least one person reported that Lobush traveled to Oregon and passed-away while on the trip. However, detectives could not confirm her whereabouts in Oregon. A check of coroner-death records in Oregon and California failed to confirm she died in either state, according to the sheriff.

According to Sheriff Lopey, Lobush has medical challenges, the circumstances surrounding her disappearance have been deemed highly suspicious, which led detectives to believe she is an endangered person.

Lobush is described as a white female, 5’5” tall, 130 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Jeff Moser of the SCSO’s MCU at 530-842-8361, or, SCSO’s 24-hour Dispatch Center at 530-841-2900.
