Deputies continued to search this week for a 19-year-old Palmdale man reported missing last week, authorities said.
Eduardo “Eddie” Ramirez was last seen at 9:30 a.m. Thursday leaving his residence in the 3900 block of Cobble Court, according to Deputy Lisa Jansen of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
Deputies have Ramirez’ picture and description and are on the lookout for him while on patrol, said Deputy Kelvin Moody of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
Ramirez is described as 5-feet-11 inches tall, about 240 pounds, with black combed-over hair, brown eyes and unshaven face, Jansen said.
He was last seen wearing a gray and red hoodie sweatshirt, blue jeans and black shoes.
His family was concerned because the man suffers from depression, Jansen said.
Another person has been reported missing in Lancaster. Sheriff’s deputies this week began a search for Rose Fountain, 71, who was last seen the afternoon of Oct. 7 leaving Antelope Valley Hospital. Ford is reportedly forgetful and easily confused, is 5 feet 2 inches, and weighs 170 pounds with brown hair and eyes. She was last seen wearing gray sweat pants and brown shoes.
