Vigils to continue for missing man
April 27, 2009
The community will continue to rally nightly for Isaiah Eli Marsh, 30, a Nevada County man who has been missing since about April 14.
Organizers said they plan to hold a candlelight vigil every night at Pioneer Park until information surfaces about Marsh’s disappearance; the rally tonight will start at about 5 p.m.
The first vigil, held Sunday night at Pioneer Park, allegedly attracted about 250 people.
Marsh’s friends became concerned on April 18 after he failed to return telephone calls. He is described as a conscientious person who would not fail to keep in contact.
Since then, searchers have combed the North San Juan and Yuba County areas; a signal from Isaiah Marsh’s cell phone was last picked up by a tower at Bullard’s Bar.
“We are taking it very seriously,” said Nevada County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Tripp Monday afternoon. “We’re following up on all the information we’re getting.”
At this point, it remains a missing-persons investigation, Tripp said.
Marsh is described as a white man, 5-feet-10-inches tall, weighing about 220 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes. Also missing is his truck, a black 2003 Ford F350 dually with California license plate 8J41251.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is encouraged to call the Major Crimes Unit at 265-1263.
