Here's what we know so far, according to California authorities.

Scott Alonso, communications director for Sonoma County, says the reports have come via calls to a hotline the county set up for the missing.
It is possible that many or most of the missing are safe but simply can’t be reached because of the widespread loss of cell service and other communications.

A state of emergency was declared in northern areas after mass evacuations, with 1,500 properties destroyed.
About 20,000 people fled from Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties in response to some the state's worst-ever wildfires.
