Rescued: 88 Year Old Rocklin Man


On June 19th, at approximately 5:40 p.m., a volunteer from Placer County Mountain Rescue Team located Mr. Knibbs a few hundred feet away from a walking path, in a thick, wooded portion of a greenbelt area.

Mr. Knibbs had slipped and fell earlier in the day, and was lying down, out of view.  Police officers and a Rocklin Fire engine company responded to the scene with emergency equipment to extract Mr. Knibbs from the scene.  Emergency crews used a chainsaw to clear a pathway through the trees for emergency equipment and additional personnel to reach Mr. Knibbs. 

Mr. Knibbs was transported to a local hospital for exposure. 

"We are fortunate to have had the assistance of the Placer County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue team, as well as their Air Operations Unit. I also want to thank all of the people from our community who remained engaged on social media to help spread the word and locate Mr. Knibbs. Placer County really is an amazing place!" - Ron Lawrence, Rocklin Chief of Police

On 06/18/2014, at approximately 06:34 PM, officers from the Rocklin Police Department responded to a care home in the 6400 block of Wisp Court for a missing adult.  The missing adult was identified as, Dennis Knibbs, 88 years old, from Rocklin.

Officers completed a thorough search of the area including the use of a CHP airplane and a Canine from the Placer County Sheriff's Office.  However, officers were unable to locate Knibbs.  At this time, there does not seem to be any foul play suspected.  Due to Knibbs' age and medical conditions, the Rocklin Police Department contacted the California Highway Patrol and a "Silver Alert" was issued.

Knibbs was last seen wearing a light colored shirt and gray pants with suspenders.  He is described as 6'2", weighing about 180lbs, with gray balding hair, brown eyes, and a darker complexion.  Knibbs has a large tattoo on his right arm and was possibly seen in the 10000 block of Fairway Drive, Roseville, at about 06:30 PM. 

Anyone with any information as to Knibbs' location or anyone that may have seen Knibbs is asked to contact the Rocklin Police Department at the 916-625-5400
