Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep senior Sergio Jimenez, 17, remains missing this morning.

Jimenez was last seen on the Del Paso Road campus where surveillance video shows the teen heading toward the bus loop at about 3 p.m. He was last seen wearing a gray, zip-up hoody sweatshirt, black jeans and white tennis shoes.
“Thanks to all in attempting to locate 17 year old Sergio Jimenez. Let me assure you that the SPD has been actively investigating this event and will continue in our efforts until he is located. We are concerned because this is uncharacteristic behavior for this young man. However, we have no indications at this time of foul play. A variety of investigative measures are underway.” -Capt. James Maccoun
Principal Tom Rutten said a fire alarm pulled in the school gymnasium delayed the release of school by a few minutes on Wednesday. The school day is scheduled to end at 2:55 p.m.

“He gets to the center of campus and turns like he is heading to the bus pickup area,” Rutten said this morning of the video. “After that we don’t see him again.”

Jimenez has been a student at NP3 for 1½ years and previously attended Natomas High School. He lives with his aunt in south Natomas and usually rides the school bus with his cousin to a stop on San Juan Road.
Jimenez reportedly never got on the bus after school on Wednesday.

Sacramento police officers, parents and students searched the NP3 school grounds last night. As of 9 a.m. Thursday, Jimenez had not attempted to contact family or friends.
Rutten this morning said he was continuing to review the surveillance footage. The case has been turned over to the police department’s Missing Persons detectives.

Anyone with information about Jimenez’s whereabouts is asked to contact Rutten (916) 826-5966 or the Sacramento Police Department (916) 264-5471.
