Search on for couple missing after Sierra drive

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Officers from several agencies are looking for a Northern California man and a Nevada woman who haven't been seen since they left a Sacramento suburb to drive through the Sierra to Gardnerville, Nev. last Thursday.

Sacramento television station News10 reports ( ) that 44-year-old Roderick Paul Clifton and 46-year-old Paula Lane were reported missing by relatives when they left Citrus Heights, a Sacramento suburb, and didn't return to Nevada that night.

Citrus Heights police Det. Sgt. Lee Harrington told the station that because the couple would have been driving on Sierra highways in stormy weather, police notified other California and Nevada law enforcement agencies.

Herrington says deputies from California's El Dorado and Alpine counties, and from Nevada's Douglas County, are searching for the couple. The California Highway Patrol has also joined in the search.

The drive from Citrus Heights to Gardnerville is about 117 miles.
