Search on for missing man


Authorities yesterday sought public assistance in locating a 58-year-old Santa Clarita man who has been missing for about a week.

William Cierzan was last seen at his home Jan. 26, the sheriff’s department reported.

That day, Cierzan told his wife, Linda, over the phone that he was making dinner, but when she came home around 7 p.m., there was no sign of him, said Deputy Don Walker.

His car, wallet and cellphone, however, were all left behind, Walker said.

Family members searched for him, but when they couldn’t find him they reported him missing to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Deputies were called to conduct a missing person investigation and found blood inside the residence during a walk-through, Walker said.

The family also obtained surveillance footage shot from a neighbor’s camera that failed to show Cierzan leaving home after his wife last heard from him.

“The video shows he never left the house,” the missing man’s sister, Andrea Peck, told The Signal newspaper. “No friends drove up. No one came to the door.”

She added, “This man has a history of going to work, living in a house and being very happy. He loves his wife. He loves his house. He loves his dog.”

Cierzan is employed by Six Flags Magic Mountain and is said to enjoy the comfort of being at home with his family, as well as golfing and collecting Coca-Cola memorabilia, Walker said.

He is described as 5-foot-8, weighing approximately 140 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair, The Signal reported.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call the sheriff’s department at (323) 980-5500, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
