Reward increased to $20K for information leading to missing Santa Clarita man

A reward has been doubled to $20,000 for information that helps solve the disappearance of a Santa Clarita man, it was announced Tuesday.

William Cierzan, who worked at Six Flags Magic Mountain, went missing Jan. 26. He told his wife, Linda, over the phone that afternoon that he was making dinner. But when she came home around 7 p.m., there was no sign of her 58-year-old husband, whose car, wallet and cellphone were all left behind, said sheriff's Deputy Don Walker.

A $10,000 reward offered in February by the city of Santa Clarita was upped by $10,000 by an anonymous donor, the sheriff's department announced.

Cierzan is described as white, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair. A Facebook page was also created in the search for Cierzan.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts was urged to call the sheriff's department at (323) 980-5500, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
