    IMG_0344.JPG "Homicide detectives were seeking the public’s help Wednesday in the disappearance of man who hasn’t been seen in almost a week, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

    William Cierzan, 58, was reported missing last Thursday. He was last seen at his Santa Clarita home where he lives with his wife, Linda Cierzan.

    Linda Cierzan said at a news conference that her husband had spent all day at their home with their nephew. She said she last spoke to him at around 4 p.m. after their nephew had left. She said he was making dinner at the time of the phone call.

    She added that by 7 p.m. she had returned to her home and found dinner on the stove, but her husband was nowhere to be found. She said his keys, wallet and car were still at home, but there was no sign of her husband. She said she reported her husband missing to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station later that night.

    Officials investigating William Cierzan’s disappearance said that detectives found what looked to be blood stains inside the home, but it was unclear how much blood was found and whether it belonged to the missing man.

    “Due to the suspicious circumstances they called the Homicide Bureau,” Det. Ralph Hernandez said. “We confirmed there was blood inside the residence.”

    The sheriff’s department said surveillance footage showed a car pulling up to the home at around 5 p.m. on the night William Cierzan disappeared. A neighbor told KTLA-TV that the car seen in the video was “familiar to the family.”

    Who was in the car? Are they talking about the nephew, I wonder?

    Sure is. Reminds me of when Holly Bobo was abducted and all that was left behind were drops of blood. :(

    Praying for a good outcome. Maybe he is being held somewhere!

    This kinda answers my question:

    Video from a neighbor’s security camera shows no sign of Cierzan. However, the footage did show a white-colored SUV backing up to the garage in the early evening. The video shows the SUV leaving minutes later. At the news conference, detectives said the truck belongs to a family member, but did not specify who. It’s unclear if the driver of the SUV was Cierzan’s nephew.

    That's the strange part - a white SUV, owned by a family member, backed up to the garage door and poof!

    I have a feeling detectives have a handle on what may have happened.

    City offers $10k reward in disappearance of William Cierzan

    The City of Santa Clarita is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person, or persons, responsible for the disappearance of Santa Clarita resident William Cierzan missing since January.

    At the request of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, the City of Santa Clarita announced Tuesday it is offering the $10,000 reward in the hope that someone will come forward with valuable information that could lead to details in the disappearance and whereabouts of the missing man.

    Detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Homicide Bureau are still investigating the mysterious disappearance now more than two months old.

    “The investigation is still ongoing,” Det. Ralph Hernandez told The Signal Tuesday.

    “We’re still awaiting the results of some crime lab examinations,” Hernandez said.

    A Cierzan family member expressed hope Tuesday that announcement of the reward could be what tips the scales in the deepening mystery.

    No sign of Will Cierzan after 3 months

    It’s been three months since Will Cierzan told his wife, Linda, on the phone that he was making dinner before vanishing completely from her life and without leaving a trace as to his whereabouts.

    On Jan. 26, Linda Cierzan arrived at her home on Cuatro Milpas Street, near Seco Canyon Road, found the chicken dinner made, the oven turned off, and no sign of her husband.

    “Just when I think he’s dead, I think ‘no.’ They searched 80 acres. There are searchers out there every day,” Will Cierzan’s sister, Andrea Peck told The Signal Tuesday. “That’s when we start to think

    ‘Is there a possibility he’s OK?’ We’re hanging in there.”

    Homicide detectives continue to work diligently on the case, she said, but sharing nothing of what they’ve uncovered or learned with the family.

    Will Cierzan’s nephew, who watched golf on TV with him the day he disappeared, has withdrawn from any interaction, she said.

    “He won’t search, he won’t talk,” Peck said.

    Deputies say nephew is 'person of interest' in missing Santa Clarita man case

    The wife of 58-year-old missing man William Cierzan says she knew all along what sheriff deputies now are making public.

    Sheriff Deputies now say William's nephew, Daniel Cierzan, is their prime person of interest.

    Detectives confirm surveillance video - which they didn't want released - shows Daniel leaving their home in a truck on January 26th when William disappeared.

    They say blood samples they recently got back from inside and outside their Santa Clarita home belong to the Magic Mountain employee.

    That information coupled with a now $20 thousand dollar reward gives deputies hope anyone who knows anyone about the nephew will come forward.

    Hope binds what’s left of missing man’s family

    The hope that Will Cierzan, missing since late January, is still alive is what carries members of his family – shattered though it’s become – through each day, his sister says.

    “Linda (Will’s wife) believes that Will is still out there,” Cierzan’s sister, Andrea Peck told The Signal Friday.

    “We want to keep that hope going,” she said. “We hold out hope that someone saw something that would help. That’s the hope we hold out for.”

    In just over a week, Will Cierzan will have been missing for half a year.

    Det. Ralph Hernandez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Homicide Bureau two months ago revealed blood evidence collected inside the Cierzan house revealed that the blood belonged to Will Cierzan.

    Since the reward for information leading to the conviction of the person, or persons, responsible for Cierzan’s disappearance doubled to $20,000 from the initial $10,000 posted by the City of Santa Clarita, clues have found their way to Det. Hernandez.

    “Det. Hernandez told us he had gotten some leads and that he’s been following up on them,” Peck said.

    “He is actually keeping this thing alive,” she said.

    Hernandez said he would prefer to have more contact with the last person to see Will Cierzan alive – the nephew, Daniel Cierzan.

    “We only have a person of interest and that is Daniel Cierzan,” Hernandez told The Signal in May.

    The ordeal over Will Cierzan’s bizarre disappearance has cut a profound rift inside the Cierzan family.

    “I didn’t lose just one brother,” Peck said Friday. “I’ve lost another brother and a nephew.”

    According to Peck, “Danny” and his father “Chuck” have not been communicating with the family.”

    “Chuck and Danny have distanced themselves from Will’s immediate family,” she said in May. “They’ve not been part of any search for Will.”

    Peck said her brother Chuck – Charles Cierzan – had apparently changed his phone number because the number she had no longer works.

    “We feel a tremendous loss as a family,” Peck said Friday.

    Weekend searches for the missing man still go on, she added, and they are expected to continue as long as there’s hope that he’s alive.

    Wife of missing man files complaint with local sheriff

    The wife of Six Flags worker Will Cierzan, who has been missing for more than half a year, filed an official complaint Wednesday with the local sheriff’s station about the deputy initially contacted about his disappearance.

    “Last night was exactly six months since my husband has gone missing,” Linda Cierzan wrote to The Signal Thursday on an email account still bearing her husband’s name.

    “The family is still hoping and praying that someone will come forward and offer information that will bring Will home safely,” she said.

    But, while Will Cierzan’s loved ones continue to pray, steps have been taken to challenge the efforts carried out to find him.

    “I did file a complaint at the (Santa Clarita Valley) Sheriffs Station yesterday, against the original deputy who took the Missing Persons Report that Thursday night,” Linda Cierzan told The Signal Thursday.

    “I feel that if she had done her job properly, she would have seen the blood and detectives would have been called in that night, instead of 24 plus hours later,” she said.

    Family of missing man hopes someone recalls seeing “unique” SUV

    Today is the day marking seven months since Will Cierzan has been missing from his Saugus home after an afternoon of watching golf with his nephew and cooking dinner for his wife.

    The other piece of the puzzle – pretty much the only piece of evidence outside of the found blood – was recorded video surveillance of a white SUV seen pulling into the home’s driveway and leaving six minutes later.

    What was the visiting vehicle?

    Who was driving it?

    Where did it go?

    The answers to these questions could very well answer the bigger question dogging Homicide Detective Ralph Hernandez for the past half year: What happened to Will Cierzan?

    The “unique” vehicle, captured by a video surveillance camera fixed to a neighbor’s house across the street from the Cierzan home, appears to be a white Toyota 4Runner custom-fitted with large tires.

    The video is date stamped and time stamped.

    It shows the Toyota backing into the Cierzan driveway at 5:06 p.m. on Jan. 26, 2017. It also shows the vehicle pulling out of the driveway at 5:12 p.m.

    What it fails to show, however, is the driver.

    Wife of missing man prays for ‘Christmas miracle’

    Linda Cierzan is praying her husband, Will, comes home for Christmas, telling The Signal Friday that she’s praying for a Christmas miracle.

    “Will and I first met on Christmas Eve, when we both worked at Fedco, in the valley, so this holiday is very important to us,” she said.

    Every Christmas since has been magical for Will and Linda Cierzan, she said. Every Christmas except this one, which marks 11 months he vanished without a trace.

    “This has been a very hard year, first with Will disappearing and then my mother passing away in June. My Mom loved Christmas so much, she used to decorate the house, go to the market and buy fresh fruits and pastries for Christmas and we would do last minute shopping until all hours the weekend before Christmas — she made the holidays very special.”

    Will also shared in the holiday spirit, she added.

    “Will also loves Christmas, the lights, the decorations and the tree,” she said. “He is very picky about getting the right tree (he loves the smell of a fresh tree), he puts on the lights and we cover the tree with ornaments we have gotten over the years.”

    Yet as 2017 winds down, with a $20,000 reward still out there for information regarding what happened, there’s been no sign of the mystery getting closer to being solved.
