Original Story

TEMECULA - Detectives from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Temecula Sheriff Station are investigating the alleged disappearance of Richard Tyrrell, a realtor with Sun Team Realtors and Rancon Real Estate, who they say may now be in Los Angeles County.

Tyrrell was first reported missing at 5:47 p.m. Monday, July 8. The Sheriff's released a press release on Thursday, July 11.

"Richard Tyrrell of Temecula visited the Pechanga Resort and Casino on the evening of July 7," wrote Sergeant Wilfredo Collazo in a press release. "Mr. Tyrrell left the casino there during the early morning hours on July 8, via a possible ride service to the Los Angeles-area. Riverside County Sheriff's investigators believe Mr. Tyrrell is now somewhere in Los Angeles County and are pursuing all leads to locate him.

"Personnel from the Pechanga Resort and Casino's Department of Public Safety have been working closely with Sheriff's investigators in this effort from the outset."

Tyrrell is described as a white male in his late 40s, 6-feet-tall and 225 lbs. with green eyes.

Sgt. Collazo said the investigation is currently on-going and no further information will be released at this time.

In a Facebook post shared in local community pages, Marcy English Sattelmaier reported that her boyfriend and business partner, Tyrrell, had been missing since early Monday morning.

In an interview with NBC in Los Angeles that aired on Wednesday, July 10, Sattelmaier said that Tyrrell told her he had won some money during his visit to the casino and would be home soon.

He never showed up and hasn't been heard from since, according to Sattelmaier.

"The last time I spoke with him was approx 2:30 a.m. Monday 7-8-19 - he was at Pechanga (Resort Casino)," Sattelmaier wrote in the initial Facebook post. "His phone is dead and he (took an) Uber there so his car is here."

She also told NBC that she has learned that Tyrrell's bank accounts have been drained and indicated that she believes he was last dropped off by a rideshare driver in Los Angeles County.

In a Facebook post update, also on Wednesday, she wrote that Tyrrell's phone last pinged in the South Central area of Los Angeles.

The Valley News has reached out to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department for more information on any investigations into the case, but no statement has been made. The media information bureau of the agency said they expect a press release to be issued in the near future.

The couple worked together at Sun Team Realtors, Rancon Real Estate for at least the last several years. Sattelmaier told the Valley News that he has a 9-year-old daughter and she has two boys, ages 21 and 25.

If anyone has information on Tyrrell's whereabouts they are encouraged to call Investigator Guimont at the Southwest Sheriff's Station at 951-696-3000.
