October 10, 2015 (El Cajon ) – The family of Elijah “Bear” Diaz, 20,  who vanished on August 29th, will hold a spaghetti dinner fundraiser and raffle at Barona Clubhouse on October 23, 2015 at 6 p.m. 

“Since we believe Bear is not missing on his own terms, the family has hired a private investigator which these funds will go toward,” Katey Hoffman told East County Magazine. She is working with Lelanie Thompson,  Bear’s mother.

The cost is $10 and includes spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, drinks and desert.  Raffle tickets are $5 and prizes include jewelry, art, cooking wares, and gift cards.  Donations of additional raffle prizes are welcome.

September 12, 2015 (El Cajon)—Elijah “Bear” Diaz, 20, remains missing two weeks after vanishing from his El Cajon home on Saturday, August 29. A private investigator hired by the family calls his disappearance “suspicious,” NBC 7 reports.

Diaz is a diabetic with a serious foot injury who is likely on crutches. His family is deeply concerned that he left with only enough insulin for a week and has missed several doctor’s appointments.

A wide-screen TV was missing from his room.  Diaz left without his toothbrush, glasses and cell phone charger, NBC 7 has reported.
