Carl Herbert Landers
Missing since May 25, 1999 from Mount Shasta, Siskiyou County, California
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Carl Landers was last seen on May 25, 1999, near Lake Helen. He was going to climb to the summit of Mount Shasta.
Landers was on a quest to climb the highest peak in every California county. Carl Landers planned to climb the snowcapped 14,162-foot volcanic peak with two fellow Orinda residents. He disappeared after he complained of feeling poorly and left Camp 50-50, elevation 9,400 feet, where he and two climbing partners spent the night before their planned climb, without his partners to get a head start.
Landers is a former Orinda school board member. The California Highway Patrol, the National Guard and more than 50 volunteers combed the southwestern region of the peak trying to locate him.
