From the Arcata Police Department:

On 10-26-19 at about 5:50 pm, a citizen called the Arcata Police Department Communications Center reporting a possible sighting of the missing person, Arthur Barab, near the north jetty on the Samoa Peninsula.  While officers were en-route to the area, the caller contacted the subject who, was determined to be Barab, and flagged down a Fish and Wildlife Officer who was passing through the area.

APD would also like to thank the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, the United States Coast Guard, the Eureka Police Department, the California Highway Patrol and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for their assistance with this case.
