*Due to a lack of new clues, and incoming inclement weather the Jackson search has been placed in a limited continuous mode as of October 2, 2016. This means that active searching in the field has ceased, however any clues that are developed will be followed up on by investigators or search teams depending on the type of information gathered.

If you have any information about Peter, please call 209/379-1926 (during business hours) or 209/379-1992 after hours.
