This page is inspired by the case of Erik Lamberg, 51, a father and husband diagnosed as bi-polar, who has been missing since May 23, 2013, and is dedicated to all persons with mental illness who have not found their way home.

Missing loved ones who have a serious mental illness is an epidemic problem. Sometimes the person has deliberately disappeared in response to stigma -- out of shame, or not wanting to "burden" others; sometimes their illness keeps them from finding their way home; accident, murder, and suicide are also possibilities. To the ones left behind, not knowing is an agonizing dilemma.


Erik Lamberg went missing on a dirt road in Northern California between Fort Bragg and Willits on May 26. Call the Mendocino Sheriff's Office at 707-463-4086 with any info. Follow us on twitter for updates @finderiklamberg @slambergshark. Latest updates: LA Times Article,0,1102345.column
