Two adults are missing from Citrus Heights, with a search extending to Gardnerville, Nev.
Citrus Heights Police Department received a report that Roderick Paul Clifton, 44, and Paula Lane, 46, were missing on Nov. 30, a press release stated. They had last been seen on Nov. 29 leaving a relative’s house in the area around 2:45 p.m. The two were supposed to return to their Nevada home later that same day, typically calling Roderick’s mother on completion of the journey. However, they have not been seen or heard from since and are not answering their cell phones. Relatives are worried due to roadway conditions and conditions in the mountains.
