The SUV of Capt. Wayne Habell has been found in Santa Barbara County, but the veteran firefighter stationed at Fire Station 73 in Newhall is still missing, according to a tweet Friday by Los Angeles County fire officials.
“Fire Captain Wayne Habell’s vehicle has been found in Santa Barbara County,” said the tweet by @LACoFDPIO, a Los Angeles County Fire Department Twitter account. “Active search continues for Captain Habell.”
On Monday, Habell got into his older model black Chrysler Aspen and was on his way to LA Fitness in Stevenson Ranch, according to Capt. Adam Clint of Fire Station 108, who previously worked with Habell. That was the last anyone saw or heard from the 43-year-old married father of three.
Anyone with information about Habell can contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Missing Persons Unit, Sgt. Sandra Nava or Detective Abraham at (323) 890-5500.
