PLACERVILLE, Calif. - El Dorado County Sheriff Investigators said they continue to search for missing 20-year-old Lee Kurtz.

Kurtz's mother Kathie Masters said her son may be impulsive but he was always within reach. However, for nearly a month that has not been the case. Masters said she last saw her son in November when he needed help with gas money to find a job.

El Dorado County Sheriff's investigators said they've searched his Placerville apartment and have found no signs of foul play; his 2000 Chevy Blazer has not been found either.

Masters said the only glimmer of hope is Kurtz's cell phone records; she was able to trace his phone to hotel miles away.

"I got a hold of the San Luis Obispo Best Western and they told me the phone was left in a room, but since Lee was not the person who rented the room, she could not send the phone to me," Masters said.

Deputies said they continue to search for Kurtz and have entered his profile into the National Missing Persons Registry.

Masters is hoping her son calls home to let her know he's ok.
