On 04-26-2011, at 11:00 am the Humboldt County Sheriffs Office received a report of a missing elderly male. The reporting party was a caretaker at a local care home in the Garberville Area. The reporting person told responding deputies that 82 year old, Robert Firestone, a resident at the home located in the 900 block of Locust Avenue, Garberville, was missing. He was last seen on 04-25-2011 at 7:00 p.m. in his bed asleep. He likes to walk three times a day and it is unknown exactly when he left the care home.
According to the reporting party Firestone is deaf, and has Alzheimer’s. When Firestone walks, he walks stooped over due to a medical condition. He is also supposed to be taking medications.
