Details of Disappearance Ornelas was last seen in Novato, California on April 1, 1990. He packed his belongings, left home and has never been heard from again. Ornelas charged with robbery in 1989, while he was a student at Marin Junior College. He missed a court date after his disappearance and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Authorities thought at the time that he was hiding in the Colfax, California area.
Ornelas is no longer wanted for any crimes, as the statute of limitations has run out. His family is anxious to find him because his father needs a kidney transplant and they think Ornelas could be a match. He may be living under a new name and Social Security number. His case remains unsolved.
