Inyo County law enforcement is conducting a search of the Buttermilk area for a man last seen in July.
The man, 64-year-old Richard John Malten of Oregon House, Calif., was reported missing earlier this week, according to Inyo Sheriff’s Public Information Officer Carma Roper, leading investigators to his abandoned vehicle along McGee Creek west of Bishop.
That vehicle, so far, is the only lead investigators have on Malten’s whereabouts.

Local leaders at the city and county level took some time this week to recognize local volunteer firefighters who are willing to train year-round for an opportunity to serve the community.
In honor of Fire Prevention Week, the Inyo County Board of Supervisors honored Assistant Bishop Fire Chief Pat O’Neil as Firefighter of the Year.
A few hours later, the Bishop City Council, meeting on Tuesday due to the Columbus Day holiday, elected to honor the entire Bishop Volunteer Fire Department as the Citizen of the Quarter, an honor the council gives out every four months.
