Authorities are worried that a homeless man who lived in the Ventura River bed area may be the victim of foul play.
The last confirmed sighting of Jerry Dean Bohannon was January 13th.
Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say they’ve learned the 49 year old man was the victim of a violent assault during the third week of January. Despite an extensive search, he hasn’t been seen since.
The investigators say they have received conflicting accounts as to what led to Bohannon’s disappearance, and are concerned about his safety.
They’re going public to see if anyone has talked to Bohannon, or heard anything about his apparent disappearance.
