Hey all. If you're in or around wilsonville, oregon, or have been in the last 5+ years, you likely have seen this man. Names Rob. Goes by blaze in some circles. Hes a homeless man. A canner. Sometimes flies a sign but very rarely and only within the last year or so. Friendly AF. Drinks Mickeys and loves his bud. Usually seen walking up and down freeway from rest stops into town (and back) with large black trash bag full of cans..

Hes Been missing since March 5th. Left behind his backpack of his only possessions in the back of someones truck where he slept one evening. Very unlike him.

His friends are worried. Any info would be helpful at this point. Ive spent about 8 hours a day since sat 3/10/18 searching for him and giving everyone in wilsonville my number in hopes that someone sees him. No luck yet.

Checking ERs, jails and state medical examiner daily. No sign of him. And no "John Doe's" either.

My phone # is 916-470-3094
If you see him give it to him. Or contact me to Lmk you saw him. I just wanna know hes alive. Feel free to share my # with anyone that may have info or may know him.

Filing missing persons report today.

Thank you for reading.

The wilsonville cop I spoke to today said I can not file a missing person report on a transient unless he has known, documented mental illness, or is suicidal, or requires medication of any type. He has been missing for 12 days now and I need help and as usual, the cops are fucking useless.

ANYTHING IS APPRECIATED

here is another picture. The pic in OP is a little distorded.. Like the cam moved a tiny bit while taking it. But this one is blurry... Though it depicts him better.

Does that make sense?

i hope hes alrite.
now about the missing persons report, do the officers have to have past documentation that he was suicidal? not that he was, but im saying you could fake a note just so they will have a report out to be looking for him.

I get that you have good intentions here but this is absolutely terrible advice. Possibly leading to involuntary commitment of the guy who is missing, and/or charges of filing a false police report for the OP.

I have been keeping my search and contact w police 100% factual.

If I were to have lied I would say he recently moved in w me but I had already told them he was homeless.

I got a random phone call yesterday. Supposedly a mutual friend of Robs saying that she heard he was beaten to death and dumped somewhere in Marion county. The next county over. The police finally let me file that missing persons report w that new info.

I am just hoping it was a false piece of info.
