More than a month after two Humboldt County residents were reported missing by family members, an arrest warrant has been issued for Tyler Thomas Burrow in Trinity County. The warrant is not related to the reported disappearance of his ex-girlfriend, 28-year-old Billie Faye Aralyn Blunt, who was reported missing around the same time as Burrow.
The arrest warrant was issued on October 24 for assault with a deadly weapon.
“If Tyler is located, please exercise caution and contact law enforcement,” a Tuesday news release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office noted.
The two were reported missing on September 25 and 26, respectively, and a news release from HCSO is asking for the public’s help in locating them.
According to an HCSO statement, Blunt was last seen when she went to retrieve her belongings from a property in Willow Creek associated with her ex-boyfriend Burrow, on Sept. 22 in the area of Berg Road. HCSO said the family last heard from Burrow on September 23 by phone and the family reported him missing a few days later as repeated attempts to contact him went unanswered.
“Neither Blunt nor Burrow were located at the Berg Road property when they were checked by friends and family. A subsequent search of the property was conducted by law enforcement on multiple occasions. “At this time, the whereabouts of Blunt and Burrow are unknown,” the statement said.
Blunt’s family has offered a $1,500 reward for information leading to Burrow’s arrest and Blunt’s return, according to a Facebook page dedicated to the search, titled “Help Find Billy Blunt.”
Plante’s sister, Stephanie Baroni, has set up a GoFundme page for a private investigator. Their mother was staying in the area where Burrow was last known, tracking down clues, knocking on doors, and working with investigators, Baroni wrote.
“This has been extremely painful and tough for my mom, but she won’t come home or stop until we get the whole truth,” Baroni wrote.
Since the disappearance, HCSO said Blunt’s green Dodge Ram (California license plate number 8T73126) was discovered by a license plate reader in the area of Redding and Central Point, Oregon, on September 24. This is the latest vehicle discovery reported by HCSO. The family also noted in social media posts that their dog, an Australian Cattle Dog with one blue eye and one brown eye, was missing.
Blunt was described by HCSO as a white female, approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall, 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Burrow is described as a white male, approximately 5 feet 11 inches tall, 220 pounds, with red/brown hair, hazel eyes, and a beard.
