LA VERNE, Calif. (KTLA) -- Three people were taken into custody in La Verne Tuesday after officers found gloves and bloody clothes in the car of a firefighter from West Covina who has been missing for days, authorities said.
The family of John Brian Mananghaya Aguila, 28, told law enforcement that they hadn't heard from him since 4:30 p.m. Aug. 22, 2019, and that he hadn't come home or showed up for his job as a part-time firefighter at the Bureau of Land Management since, the West Covina Police Department said in a news release.
Aguila's white 2017 Honda Civic was impounded in San Dimas a day later.
When officers searched the car, they found gloves and bloody clothes in the trunk, police said.
Investigators then found surveillance video that showed a person, who is not Aguila, walking away from the Honda in a residential area in San Dimas, and were able to track that person down, according to the news release.
Three people were detained inside a house, authorities said. It's unclear whether any of the three in custody is the person seen in the surveillance footage.
Aguila still hadn't been found as of Tuesday evening.
