Max Greenfield hasn’t been seen since March 18, 2018.
Del Norte County Sheriff’s Commander Bill Steven said he is very familiar with the case, although he said he didn’t have any updates to add to what was already known other than “detectives were working a lead a month ago.”
Last year, NBC Dateline featured Greenfield’s story on the show’s missing persons series. Steven was unable to say whether any tips had come from that nationwide exposure.
Greenfield’s last known location was documented on a surveillance tape from the Lucky 7 Casino in Smith River, walking across the parking lot at 1:50 a.m. March 18 while talking with another man. They disappeared outside of the frame of the camera, heading south parallel to U.S. Highway 101.
Greenfield, 25 at the time, was reported missing two days later by his mother, Andrea Greenfield. He had left their Bookings home Mar. 17 with friends and was seen entering the casino on surveillance tape at 1 a.m. Mar. 18.
Greenfield was described as a white male adult, about 6 feet tall, weighing 150-160 pounds, with brown hair, green eyes and a skeleton-key tattoo on his left forearm.
He was carrying a black duffel bag and wearing black jeans, a dark-colored t-shirt and a black jacket, as well as a dark-colored knit stocking cap.
A $10,000 reward has been offered for information about his whereabouts.
“The case is not quite cold,” Steven said. “And we will never give up.” He pointed out that in 2015, the department solved a couple of homicides nearly 30 years old.
