The samples submitted were from skeletal remains found by U.S. Forest Service personnel in 2003 in the for- est area north of Calpine, in north/central Sierra County near Highway 89. The origi- nal case was investigated by retired Undersheriff Steve Peterson. In 2011 Deputy Sheriff Noel Clem was assigned the "cold case" for follow-up. Clem's investi- gation resulted in the match of the DNA to a woman reported as missing since 1998 from the city of Eureka, in Humboldt County. The Eureka Police Department case is No. 3C98-8640. The woman is identified as Charlene Annette Rosser and she was 29 years old when she went missing. Both the Sierra County Sheriff's Office and the Eure- ka Police Department are in- vestigating the matter as a homicide. Anyone with in- formation is requested to contact Clem or Sheriff John Evans. Call 289-3700, or email sheriffadmin@sierra Anonymous information can always be left for the sheriff toll-free by calling (888) 2-SHERIFF or (888) 274- 3743, which is a confidential voice message line accessed only by Evans. This is the second case in a year of reh~ains identified by DNA in Sierra County. Law and Order policy nformation that appears in this column is compiled from the Plumas County Sheriff's Office' activity log, the county correctional center's booking log and California Highway Patrol press releases. The Sher- iff's Blotter shows initial charges. In some instances the charges may change after the dispatch report. We do not report suspects' names in arrests for public intoxication or drunken driving unless accompanied by another serious charge, such as probation violation, a vehicle acci- dent or another felony. The fact that someone has been arrested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney determines there is insufficient evidence to prosecute. The fact that someone was involved in an au- tomobile collision does not constitute liability or fault. Minors are named as legal-age drivers at 16, unless they are charged witha crime in conjunction with an incident. The CHP determines whether injuries are characterized as minor, moderate or fatal.
