Search continues for missing mother

Written by

According to information sent to KMUD News from Yurok E-Alert, dated Nov. 15, 2012:

The search for Katherine “Kathy” Gillham, a missing Yurok tribal member and mother of two, is now entering its sixth month. Gillham was last seen in Crescent City on June 11, 2012.

Katherine “Kathy” Gillham went missing on June 11, 2012

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office has made finding her a high priority and has assigned a detective to the case. The Yurok Tribe has assembled a search team to find her as well. Gillham’s family hired private investigators, Cook and Associates, to locate her and is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to her return. The close knit family has been trying to locate her from the moment it was clear something was awry. “She has two kids, William and Holly,” said her niece Cynthia Bones. “Her kids are always at the top of her priority list. This is completely outside the realm of normal for Kathy.”  Gillham, who always kept in close contact with her family and has been in a relationship with Frank Lara Jr. for more than 20 years, left Grants Pass, Oregon just before 2 a.m. on June 11.

Gillham was driving a charcoal gray 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor with the California license plate that reads 6UXE841. The investigation has so far turned up video footage of her, captured by security cameras at Elk Valley Casino around 3 a.m. on June 11, the last day she was seen, but not much else.

The Humboldt County Sheriff'’s Office considers Gillham a “high risk missing person” and her disappearance “suspicious” because of how out of character it is for her not to communicate her whereabouts to her family and the time of night she left Oregon. Gillham suffers from diabetes, and may require medical attention. Gillham has brown hair and brown eyes. She stands 5’4 and weighs nearly 200 pounds. A past knee surgery left her with a distinct limp. In the Elk Valley footage she was wearing black jeans, brown t-shirt with a deer on it and had a think chain necklace around her neck.

Anyone with information can call Humboldt County Detective Cheryl Franco at 707-268-3644 or Detective Rich Schlesiger at 707-268-3642 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.  Anonymous information may be left on the Crime Tip line.
Information can also be sent to Cook & Associates at (707)839-7422.
