Close to two hundred volunteers showed up at 8 a.m. Sunday to assist dozens of Roseville police officers in their search for Jacobson. Also on hand were Placer County’s Search and Rescue units, including seven of their esteemed canine unit. A large portion of the volunteers were from local retailer R.C. Willey.

Officials and volunteers were combing through the open space areas just southwest of the shopping center where Jacobson’s car was found on Wednesday night, including Mahany Park and the back nine holes of the Sun City golf course.

Officers assigned groups of individuals to grids within the area and provided explicit instructions on what to do if anything suspicious were found, to ensure no evidence was destroyed or tainted.

Sergeant Darin DeFreece spoke to the crowd to let everyone know they will be broken out into groups of 5 to 10 people and assigned a grid with approximately 80 grids to be assigned. He went on to describe the types of articles to be on the lookout for.

Late Sunday afternoon Roseville spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said in a statement, “the searchers found a number of items that were collected for further examination, but we don’t know yet if anything that was found was connected with Mrs. Jacobson or her disappearance.”

  • It might not be anything…But around 4 – 5pm last Thurs, I saw someone who looked like this woman. She was in the Goodwill store on Watt near El Camino. Doing my shopping I accidently bumped into her. She was very small, nice and polite. She had on something similar to what this pix shows although she seemed older. I first thought she was homeless, but she purchased many bags of clothes and had a very nice designer purse. I left the store before she, so I did not see where she went to, etc. It might be helpful to speak to the cashier there…She looked very athletic for her age.
