INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (KOLO) - The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is assisting a New Jersey police department with the search for a missing man.

A deputy found 59-year-old Richard Cambria's SUV, a 2014 metallic silver BMW X5 with New Jersey plates, along the Mt. Rose Highway in the Sheep's Flat area November 25, 2018. There was no sign of Cambria, last reported seen checking out of the Nugget Resort in Sparks November 13 after a road trip that had brought him to Northern Nevada from Santa Barbara, California.

According to a Facebook page dedicated to finding Cambria, his charged cell phone was found in the car with his luggage and other belongings, though there was no car key.

Cambria is about 5'9" and 150 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair, though he is partially bald. He sometimes wears gold-rimmed glasses.

The case is being investigated by the Montville Township Police Department in New Jersey, but anyone in the Reno area with information about where Cambria might be is asked to contact the Washoe County Sheriff's Office at 775-785-9276.
