The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday asked the public for help in finding an at-risk Watsonville man who was reported missing after being released from a behavioral health clinic.
Darin Zinola, 51, was reported missing by a family member after being released from the clinic in Santa Cruz on Saturday. He has medical issues that put him at risk if he is not treated and he has difficulty communicating verbally, sheriff's officials said.
Zinola may be found near the river levees in Watsonville or Santa Cruz, according to the sheriff's office.
Zinola is described as a white man who is 6 feet 1 inches tall, 265 pounds and has gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a beige "Big Sur" T-shirt, gray exercise pants and dark brown leather loafers, sheriff's officials said.
Anyone with information about Zinola's whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff's office at 831-471-1121.
