Robert Firestone AKA OB1 Kenobie Is Missing

 OB1 Kenobi has gone missing.

          On 04-26-2011, at 11:00 am the Humboldt County Sheriffs Office received a report of a missing elderly male. The reporting party was a caretaker at a local care home in the Garberville Area. The reporting person told responding deputies that 82 year old, Robert Firestone, a resident at the home located in the 900 block of
Locust Avenue
, Garberville, was missing. He was last seen on 04-25-2011 at 7:00 p.m. in his bed asleep. He likes to walk three times a day and it is unknown exactly when he left the care home.

According to the reporting party Firestone is deaf, and has Alzheimer’s. When Firestone walks, he walks stooped over due to a medical condition. He is also supposed to be taking medications.

Humboldt County Sheriff Search and Rescue personnel have been called to the area to assist in the search.

Robert Firestone is described as:

White Male, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 125 lbs, gray hair, brown eyes.  He may possibly be wearing a long gray raincoat, and a white round fishing cap.

Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is requested to contact the Sheriff’s office  immediately

I don't mean to make too much light of this.  I did want everyone to know that if they see someone that looks like OB1 Kenobi, they might have spotted Robert Firestone.  I think it is an uncanny resemblance.


  1. It is an amazing resemblance. Folk who know him say he is very calm, too.

  2. Humboldt must have some kinda starwars theme going...hicks and city slickers joke that they see wookies up here all the time, too.

  3. Still no word from old Ben Kanobi known locally as Robert Firestone.

    Please look for this man that looks like OB1 Kanobi, you're his only hope.

  4. Please, if anyone sees him or thinks they do, please call the Sheriff's dept because they are slowing down the search since there are no new leads

  5. Still no sign of OB1. We still have hope that he is doing something important.
