Missing truck driver
Investigators assisted by cadaver dogs are searching the house for possible evidence.
Police say their are indications that Escobar may have met with foul play and that the location may be linked to his disappearance.
“Our focus right now is to thoroughly search the area inside the house and the backyard area and ensure that any items of evidentiary value are located,” said Ontario police Sgt. David McBride.
Family members say Escobar, who lives in Laguna Hills but frequents the Inland Empire, was last seen between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. Aug. 28, shortly after completing a long haul from the East Coast.
After he arrived in Victorville with his big rig, a friend dropped off Escobar in Fontana, near Foothill Boulevard and Mongo Street, where he was expecting to meet up with a woman.
Sheriff’s investigators later found suspicious ATM transactions tied to his bank accounts.
The investigation into those transactions led police to the home in Ontario, a home that neighbors say police have visited quite often over the years.
“It’s been raided about five times in 10 years. It was raided a few months ago,” one man, who did not want to be identified, told KTLA.
“Activity left and right… day and night,” he said. “This doesn’t surprise anybody that something has happened here.”
