Belmont, California – The long-standing mystery surrounding the disappearance of Paul Farmer, an 84-year-old man who went missing during an evening walk four years ago, has come to a somber conclusion.
California police confirmed that human remains discovered on a hillside have been positively identified as Farmers. The elderly man, who suffered from memory loss, vanished on August 26, 2019, and never returned home from his walk.
Belmont police conducted extensive searches in their efforts to locate Farmer, but unfortunately, their efforts were in vain. However, a significant breakthrough emerged in May 2023 when police learned that Farmer’s identification card had been found in a waterway in San Mateo County two months earlier.
Acting on this discovery, law enforcement officials initiated a search operation in a densely forested area located just south of Highway 92 near Hillsdale Boulevard. Their dedicated efforts yielded results as officers located human remains on hillsides obscured by thick brush. Subsequent identification confirmed that the remains indeed belonged to Paul Farmer.
