Mazatlan, Mexico—I’ve been able to verify through Oliver "Pareece" Jones’ sister that he’s been located here and is safe. I know his five children are celebrating today and are very anxious to be reunited with their father.
The personal details are sketchy right now but they seem to surround a head injury Jones received in Hollywood just before he vanished on or about April 4th.
I wish to thank the San Bernardino, CA Sheriff’s Police of Rancho Cucamonga for their diligent and professional efforts.
Additionally I want to thank KTLA-TV, NBC-4, ABC-7, KCBS/KCAL-TV and ABC News Network for their efforts in informing their Southern California audience of the crisis and broadcasting Pareece’s pictures everywhere!
Special Thanks go to KTLA’s great reporters, Kareen Wynter, Sara Welch and Rick Chambers for their interest and concerns. KTLA’s five hours of broadcast local news was incredibly valuable and comforting to the emotionally distraught Jones family.
Like me the family was prepared for the worst but this miraculous ending is indeed a joy to report.
