On Tuesday, December 28, 2021, at 5:37 PM, deputies from the Cabazon Station responded to a residence in the 13000 block of Mesquite Road in the unincorporated area of Whitewater for a check the welfare call. The reporting party indicated they had not heard from the homeowner and was concerned for their well-being.
