Investigators served a warrant at a Thousand Oaks ranch Thursday in search of a man who disappeared almost a year ago, and who they now believe is the victim of foul play.
Adrian Figueroa was reported missing in January, but detectives have since learned he hasn’t been seen since last July, Ventura County sheriff’s officials said in a news release.
Figueroa lived in a recreational vehicle on a sprawling property on the 1500 block of Pederson Road “that includes an adjacent Christmas tree farm,” according to the release. He was last seen at the ranch, deputies said.
On Thursday, a team of investigators combed through the property using heavy equipment and cadaver dogs. They did not say whether any evidence was found.
Detectives are seeking the public’s help, and a reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and charges in the case.
