Carrera has heart problems and Moore said, “We’re extremely worried about him because of his health.”
According to Moore, Carrera comes to Susanville and Westwood a lot via bus. He usually carries a backpack with him, but Moore said he left it at his house.
Missing posters are being posted around the area and on the buses.
Moore said they have also contacted the sheriff’s offices, hospitals and jails in Lassen and Plumas counties and in Reno, but they do not know his whereabouts.
According to Mike Carney, a sergeant at the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office, a report was taken in the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 7. Deputies went to Carrera’s home and searched the Milford and Doyle areas. They also contacted Carrera’s known contacts in Westwood. Foul play is not suspected.

The case remains under investigation.If anyone has information they are asked to call Moore at 260-0383 or the LCSO at 257-6121.
