‘Person of Interest’ Identified in Missing Humboldt Women’s Cases

NBC’s online series “Missing in America” is looking into the case of two Humboldt County, California women who vanished over a year ago: Danielle Bertolini and Sheila Franks. The two went missing within days of each other in February 2014.

Now, Fortuna Police Chief William Dobberstein confirms that there’s a connection between the two disappearances.

“Both cases are ongoing investigations,” Dobberstein said. “We’re working with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Department closely and following all our leads, but yes, we have identified a person-of-interest in both cases and it’s the same man.”

“We aren’t releasing his name at this time,” Dobberstein added.

Danielle was last seen in Fortuna in the Campton Heights area, while Sheila was last seen in Eureka. Despite a 14-year age difference, both women have blond hair, blue eyes, are similar in appearance and build, and travel in the same social circles.
