Oregon State Police (OSP) asked for the public's help Saturday to find a missing, medically endangered 63-year old man last seen early Saturday morning leaving a residence northwest of Grants Pass. The missing person has a life-threatening medical condition requiring daily medication for which it is believed he is not in possession of. Sunday evening, OSP was notified by the man's family that he was located safe.
According to Senior Trooper Scott Holsworth, on June 8, 2013 at approximately 3:30 a.m., the 63-year old man was last seen leaving his residence in the 1000 block of Plumtree Lane northwest of Grants Pass in his 1997 Ford Ranger pickup displaying Oregon license plates. He was believed headed at that time toward the city of Grants Pass but his family had not been able to locate him, including contact with friends and trying to call him on his personal cell phone.
His Ford Ranger pickup was described as black in color and "lowered", with chrome wheels, diamond plate pickup bed rails, and is in nice condition. Tethered in the pickup's bed is a black with blue trim 1990 Yamaha FJ2 motorcycle.
A photograph of the man and a similar looking black 1997 Ford Ranger pickup were provided with this news release to help locate him.
OSP thanks the public and media for their interest after the missing person information was provided.
