Update: Sadly, the body of missing Dan Hoff, was found on Iron Mountain. It is believed he committed suicide.
Dan Hoff, 43, who lives in La Mesa, in San Diego County, was last seen at a family dinner on Monday. When he didn’t show up for work on Thursday, his employer called to find out why, which alerted his family that he was missing. Dan’s mother called the La Mesa police and reported him missing.
On Friday, at 3:07 a.m., December 17, authorities found Dan’s white Toyota truck parked at the base of Iron Mountain in Poway, which is a favorite hiking spot in San Diego. Police and volunteers searched the area with dogs, but Dan was not found before it became dark.
Because of the gusty weather conditions in San Diego County on Friday, the ASTREA helicopter was only able to do a limited search.
The search will resume again on Saturday morning.
