Missing Person:Dan Van Voorhis

 

By AUTUMN JOHNSON
Almost four years after a Castro Valley man disappeared from his home, his family is desperately hoping someone can give them answers about his fate. Dan Van Voorhis has been missing since February 27, 2011, according Kerry Malzahn, Van Voorhis' sister. Malzahn said the family held a memorial for him about a year after he vanished.
"Our family knows that he is no longer alive, and we are asking for the community's help in gaining any information regarding the circumstances of his disappearance," Malzahn said. "He lived on Cull Canyon Road."
Although Van Voorhis suffered from mental illness, his family does not believe it had anything to do with his sudden and unexplained disappearance.
Malzahn says once they reported him missing, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office searched the rural area around her brother's home. Her brother's keys, car, cell phone and beloved dogs were all found in his house.
"I think something happened to him," Malzahn told Patch. "I feel someone may have harmed him. We would just like answers."
Sergeant Kenneth Gemmell says the Alameda County Sheriff's Office recently posted a flyer asking the community for information about Van Voorhis' disappearance.
"We released the flyer because of the four year anniversary of the missing person report," Gemmell said.
Van Voorhis was 40-years-old at the time of his disappearance. Anyone with information about Van Voorhis is asked to contact the Alameda County Sheriff's Office at (510) 667-7721.
