Clement did add they have no reason to believe Farwell is injured and say he has no known health problems that could be responsible for his going missing. Farwell is a well known figure in the community and frequents restaurants and bars in the Grass Valley Nevada City area on a regular basis. His home is in the Penn Valley area. If anyone sees Farwell or has any information, they’re urged to call the sheriff’s office at -265-7880.
