Sammy Hagar comments on death of missing Roseville business partner

Sammy Hagar has issued a statement following news that missing Roseville, California business partner Stephen Pease has been found dead.

“I'm utterly saddened by the news of the passing of Steve Pease,” said Hagar. “My family and I send our prayers and deepest condolences to his family and friends throughout the upcoming holidays and beyond.”

The Sacramento Bee reports Pease, owner of Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar & Grill and several other Roseville businesses, was found by divers Sunday in the Pacific Ocean near Gualala, CA., according to the Mendocino County Coroner's office.

Pease disappeared from his family and friends on Halloween after telling his ex-wife he needed to "clear his head." He rented a car in Portland and apparently drove to Fort Bragg.

Immediately following Pease’s disappearance, Hagar’s Roseville restaurant posted a sign on its door that it was closed temporarily due to unforeseen events.
