Officials are requesting public assistance in locating two brothers with ties to Crescent City who have been named as persons of interest in an ongoing kidnapping and rape investigation.

The Investigations Bureau of the Del Norte County District Attorney’s Office is asking for any information regarding the whereabouts of two brothers — David Ken Lee and Peter Meng Lee.

The Lee brothers previously resided on Indra Street together. David Lee recently lived in Chico, where he was a student at Butte College and worked at a Subway, but has not been seen there for about two weeks, according to a press release from District Attorney Dale Trigg.

The brothers are not known to be armed. The press release asks anyone with information about the whereabouts of either man to contact the District Attorney’s Office at 707-464-7210 immediately rather than initiating contact with either of the men.

Ham radio operators living on the stricken coast fire up their radios, contact emergency managers and report on the magnitude of the disaster so that no time is wasted in saving lives.

This is the kind of scenario that will be rehearsed during the second week of June in a massive earthquake and tsunami readiness drill that has been developed by the U.S. government, the military, and state and local emergency managers over the past few years to test their readiness for what — when it strikes — will likely be the nation’s worst natural calamity.
