Sad Day For OC Family Of LA County Sheriff’s Deputy

Zoltan Tombol, a Brea resident and LA County Sheriff’s Deputy for 19 years, was found dead in a canyon off the 91 fwy Tuesday morning.  His wife reported him missing Sunday evening which launched a massive search.  They found his truck off Green River and the 91.  Since he was a hiker, this wasn’t considered unusual.  On Tuesday they found his body at the bottom of a cliff.  If you’re interested in the full details, you can check out the OC Register article here.

I first found out about this when a friend of mine posted his missing persons report on her Facebook status.  Apparently, when she was in the police academy, he was one of her drill instructors.  She had nothing but good things to say about him and was hoping for the best.  Unfortunately, the best is not what we got.  Please send out all of your prayers, good thoughts, good karma or whatever else you have to send to his family.  He leaves behind a wife, also a deputy, and a 14 year old son.
