The construction worker who went missing on Monday from a Woodside construction site on Mountain Home Road is still missing, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday afternoon.
Paul Lloyd Phillips, a 40-year-old man from Salinas, was last seen at the construction site on Monday at around 11 a.m., deputies said.
The area he was thought to be in has been "cleared" by a team of searchers on foot who used a grid technique and "highly specialized search equipment," Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt told the Almanac. "We do not yet know where he is, but it is not believed he is necessarily in peril," she added.
Mr. Phillips left, saying he needed to change his shoes and never came back, Ms. Rosenblatt said.
Mr. Phillips is a white man with blond hair and brown eyes, around 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 220 pounds, deputies said. A photo released by the Sheriff's Office shows him as being bald or having a shaved head.
Anyone who sees him should call 911.
