Diamond Bar Man missing after crash on Mountain Road – NBC Los Angeles

Authorities are asking for help in locating a 28-year-old man who went missing following a single-car accident late last month on a mountain road in Southern California.

Derrick Kwan of Diamond Bar was reported missing to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department on March 28.

His father appealed to help find him.

“I understand it’s a very small matter for them, but he’s all I have,” he said. “He’s the only son I have.”

The report followed a mysterious chain of events a day earlier in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles. A California Highway Patrol officer encountered Kwan and another person changing a tire on a car during a turnoff on the 138 freeway.

Both declined the officer’s offer of assistance.

Approximately 40 minutes later, the officer responded to a single car accident report in the area of ​​Route 138, west of Crestline Cutoff Road, in Crestline. One of the vehicles was a silver Toyota that the officer saw earlier in the rally. It was registered in Kwan’s name, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

A man matching Kwan’s description was seen leaving the crash scene with large bags, witnesses told authorities. The CHP officer searched the area for Kwan, but could not locate him.

On March 31, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department searched for Kwan, and a search and rescue team also searched April 3 and 5 in the area where Kwan was last seen, according to the Department of sheriff. MPs and volunteers distributed a recent photograph of Kwan to residents and businesses.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance has been asked to contact the Twin Peaks Sheriff’s Station. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call the We-tip hotline at 1-800-782-7463 or leave information here.
