Nevada County authorities have been searching for a 78-year-old Penn Valley man who has been missing since Tuesday,according to his wife. Nevada County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sam Brown says Ricky Farwell is known to regularly visit Grass Valley and Nevada City and likes to take long walks. His vehicle was found parked at Twin Cities Church, on the Rough and Ready Highway. A search of the area was conducted but they didn’t find him in the trails area near the church and he has since been seen in other areas.
Sgt. Brown says people who know Rick well are the most likely to have information of where he might be.
At this Point Sgt. Brown says they are not actively searching for Farwell because they don’t have an area defined to search. But they are hoping anyone who knows him and will recognize him, will report his whereabouts to the Sheriff’s office in a timely manner so they can hopefully contact him.
