WATSONVILLE (CBS SF) — The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday asked the public for help in finding an at-risk Watsonville man who was reported missing after being released from a behavioral health clinic.

Darin Zinola, 51, was reported missing by a family member after being released from the clinic in Santa Cruz on Saturday. He has medical issues that put him at risk if he is not treated and he has difficulty communicating verbally, sheriff’s officials said.

Zinola is described as a white man who is 6 feet 1 inches tall, 265 pounds and has gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a beige “Big Sur” T-shirt, gray exercise pants and dark brown leather loafers, sheriff’s officials said.
