Earlier this week the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office suspended their search for 22-year-old Paul Michael Martin, who went into the Trinity River near Tish Tang Campground last week with his brother and a friend.  The current was strong and the other two were able to get out, but Martin was carried away.  Martin is presumed drowned.  

The victim’s family is continuing their search and are looking for volunteers.  If you would like to help please contact Candy Maynard at 707-499-0291 or through their gofundme page.  

Martin’s Brother-In-Law Eric Fisher spoke with me this morning about the family’s continuing search efforts, a benefit being organized at Blue Lake Casino, and the gofundme page that was set up to help fund the search and recovery efforts.
