Details of Disappearance

Emadi was last seen near the Ice House Reservoir in El Dorado County, California on July 8, 2020. He was hiking when he became separated from his hiking companions after he crossed Silver Creek near Strawberry Point and was unable to turn back. He continued around the lake, and at 3:30 p.m. he spoke to someone on his cellular phone and said he was on a hill near a road and the lake was below him. He has never been heard from again.

Emadi was in good physical shape at the time of his disappearance, he knew how to forage for edible wild plants, and his loved ones say he had a "never quit" attitude. However, he is unfamiliar with the area and has no climbing experience; he had only ever gone on day hikes before. His case remains unsolved.
