UPDATE 2/1/09

I can't thank everyone enough for the support and love they have shown me and my family. We are continuing to utilize resources to find my father. There have been several phone calls with sightings and we are still clinging to hope that he is okay. It seems the mostly likely explanation right now is that he is experiencing some disorientation and possibly dementia. All sightings have claimed the man they saw was extremely confused and out of sorts. I continue to get emails from concerned people and tips on where to turn next for help. Just keep passing the emails and links along to people you only takes one person so see my father for us to find him. He has also possibly moved south of Santa Rosa to the next towns. Please continue to keep a prayer in your heart for our family. Thank you so much.

My dad, Edgar Barney, is the father of 10 kids, grandfather of 16 and great grandfather to 6. He is an amazing dad. He worked so hard to provide for his family and still found time to make sure we had fun and knew he supported us as well. At 74 years old, he is still very active and kicking. However, he does take medication for high blood pressure, suffers from too much iron production in his blood, and has lately begun to 'lose time' every once in a while. We are all so scared and nervous for him right now. He left his home Monday afternoon and hasn't been seen or heard from since then. The local police are investigating the matter and doing all they can. My brother-in-law in Utah is driving to California tomorrow to organize a search party and I am urging anyone who is in the area or knows someone in the area who might help to contact me as soon as possible. The more eyes and ears we have the better. I CAN BE REACHED VIA EMAIL OR PHONE AT or (203)885-2473. Any prayers and good thoughts would greatly be appreciated.
