Northern California authorities say more than 1,000 people are now on a missing persons list but stressed that it doesn't mean they are all actually missing.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Friday that a list that he released Thursday of 631 names has now increased to 1,011 names.

He called it "a dynamic list" that will fluctuate up and down and urged the public to consult the list to see if their names are on it and let authorities know if they are OK.
