San Luis Obispo County Sheriff detectives searched a home Wednesday on the 2200 block of I Street in Santa Margarita looking for evidence about a missing man who officers suspect is a victim of foul play.
On Feb. 26, Jared Jay Walters, 38, was reported missing to Atascadero police. Sheriff’s detectives assisting with the case believe Walters could be a victim of wrongdoing.
At 7 a.m. on Wednesday, detectives served a search warrant at the I Street home, “a location of interest,” officials said in a press release.
On his Facebook page, Walters says he is from Paso Robles. Detectives list him as a transient. Waters has not posted on his Facebook page since Oct. 21.
Walters’ family members and sheriff detectives are asking anyone with information about his disappearance to call the sheriff’s department at (805) 781-4500. Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to the whereabouts of Walters.
