Missing man found dead

Second such instance in as many months in Chico

An elderly man reported missing after leaving Twin Oaks Rehabilitation Center on Sunday (July 23) was found dead later that day.

Roger Dolochycki, 68, was last seen at the facility around 4 p.m., when he reportedly stepped out to purchase a cigar and did not return, according to a Chico Police Department post on Facebook. The post noted that Dolochycki needed medication. In an update at about 9:30 p.m., police said Dolochycki had been found dead.

He is the second Chico man to go missing and die in as many months. According to a Chico police press release, Stephen Odneal, 56—who had left his family’s home on June 11—was found dead in the Chico area on June 23. No foul play was suspected.
