December 29, 2015 (Dulzura)-John Sebastian “Arias” Harrington, 25, has been missing since Christmas Eve. His family is very concerned for his safety. There are indications he may be confused due to missing medication.

Harrington dropped off friends at the San Diego Airport on Dec. 24. He is from Oceanside, but GPS indicates his last known location was in the Campo-Dulzura area at 10 p.m. that night.
A caretaker for disabled individuals, most recently he was working for a person in Jamul. His mother, Deb Meacham, told ECM that police said his employer received a text message from him a day or so later and believe he may be in the Jamul area.
He has not been heard from since then. The area in which he went missing has been hit by severe winter storms with icy conditions and chilly temperatures.
