Elderly Grover Beach couple missing

May 24, 2020

The Grover Beach Police Department is asking the public for help in locating an elderly couple who were reported missing on Sunday.

On Saturday afternoon, Clara Ruth Vega, 72, and her husband Manuel (Manny) Vega, 78, went for a drive in their silver 2004 Chevrolet Corvette. At about 2 a.m., they contacted a family member to say they were lost near Hanford, but then the phone went dead.

Investigators sent out a state wide “be on the look-out” for the couple and their vehicle which has a license plate number 6KYV938. Officers also tracked the phone, and determined the last call was made from McFarland in Kern County.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the location of the couple or their vehicle to contact Officer Logoluso at (805) 473-4511.


They were found safe yesterday in SLO county according to the police post on Nextdoor last night.


Would it be that hard to tell us the color of the vehicle?

Thank you. Note to self:read the article, coffee, comment.


Look for skidmarks through a fence and into the California Aqueduct. Gets ’em every time.

Hopefully they’re safe though, and soon to be brought home safely.


Oh NO! That’s Manny the barber! He took over the shop on Elm Street in AG next door to the Domino’s before they tore it all down to remodel the center and I think had an interest in the shop up by Orchard Supply. Sure hoping these 2 are found safe! He always talked about how he loved to cruise his ‘vette.


praying for a safe ending to this.
