Rico Harris has been missing for several weeks during a trip between Alhambra and Seattle.
Harris, a former member of the Harlem Globetrotters, reportedly left his mother’s home in Southern California on Oct. 10. His car was later found abandoned at Yolo County Regional State Park on Route 16.
The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department says there is no indication of anything criminal at this time. No leads were found from inspecting Harris’ car, as it looks like the car was just parked in the parking lot and had been left for two days.
Harris set out on road trip from Alhambra, California, to Seattle at 1 am on October 10, 2014. He was last heard from at 9.30am that day when he called his mother from Sacramento. According to Harris’ family, the 6-foot-9, 280-pound former Globetrotter was in the process of moving to the northwest to join his long-time girlfriend, Jennifer Song, and start a new job in sales.
About nine hours into the drive, Mr Harris called his mother from the Sacramento area, and just before 11am he called his girlfriend and left her a voice-mail. He has not been heard from since.
On October 13, a sheriff’s deputy came upon Harris’ vehicle parked at the Yolo County Regional Parks Lower Site near Cache Creek. When officials ran the Nissan’s registration, they discovered that the car belonged to the missing man.
A ground search of the surrounding area turned up Rico Harris’ cell phone and a backpack with jumper cables. Deputies informed the missing man’s family that his car battery has dead.
