Authorities search for 20-year-old Inland Empire man who went missing on the Westside
Douglass Henry Hurd called his brother Thursday night and sounded distraught. He said he was in the Los Angeles area, had run out of gas and needed help. His phone then cut out.
His family has not heard from him, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. Some of Hurd’s property was found Friday morning by school staff outside Hollywood High School and was turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department. Officers learned that the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department towed Hurd's car about 11 a.m. Thursday after it was found unoccupied and blocking traffic in West Hollywood.
Hurd is a white male, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 135 pounds with brown eyes and medium-length brown hair. He was last seen wearing white pants, a green shirt and white sneakers.
Anyone with any information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Det. Guy Gilbert from the Menifee Police Department at (951) 210-1000 or the Riverside County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at 951-776-1099.
