Linnea Lomax Has Been Missing Nearly a Week; Aggressive Search Effort Continues

Social media has played a huge role in the search for UC Davis student Linnea Lomax.

The search for missing 19-year-old UC Davis student Linnea Lomax has gone on for almost one week, but efforts to find her have not slowed. Lomax went , after walking from a metal health facility after being released. 

There has been a massive social media effort to organize help in finding Lomax.

More than 4,000 people have liked a Facebook page connected to the search effort, as well as a Twitter account. The Facebook page has been used to organize volunteers for her search party, which has met at Sac Metro Fire Station 106, 2200 Park Towne Circle in Sacramento.

The search has garnered national and international media attention, with stories running in the following publications, among others: 

There was a candlelight vigil Sunday night at 8 p.m. in Placerville to show support for the Lomax family, according to the Facebook page. Another vigil was held on Monday in Sacramento at 8 p.m.

The search team posted a new video on YouTube on Monday in an effort to spread word about the woman’s disappearance. A separate video was released

"Of course it was scary for her, and because she's not in a normal mental state, she has fear that we're out to get her," Julie Warren, a friend of the Lomax family told the Sacramento Bee

I can only imagine how heartbreaking this is for the family and how powerless they must feel. God is their strength right now. May He surround her in the Great White Light of love and protection and keep her safe until she returns home.

I think we should watch for her wherever we go > the store, the mall, the Drs office, drug store, clinics, the park, wherever there is gathering of people. Look in cars, cabs and buses. She may be hiding in plain sight. Look in everyday places. You can't miss her wide eyes and bright smile. Everyone... Wherever you are, she may also have traveled from the Sacto area.Pray for her continued protection.
