But, back to important topics.
On February 24, 2014, Kyle Peterson allegedly crashed his SUV into the guardrail in Troutdale, OR.
Witnesses saw Peterson apparently uninjured by the one-vehicle collision, revving the engine trying to get it unstuck.
An officer arrived shortly thereafter. A police report indicated that Peterson told the officer that he was looking at his phone when the crash occurred.
While the officer was working the scene, Peterson allegedly got back into his SUV and began trying to again dislodge it.
This caught the officer by surprise and he ordered Peterson to stop.
Peterson then walked into the woods--a rugged area with a steep drop-off, adjacent to the Sandy River.
He has not been seen since.
A police tracking dog called to the scene lost the scent near the flowing water.
Evidently, the family brought in other tracking dogs, and the indicators also pointed to the river.
Due to unsafe conditions, authorities were unable to search the Sandy River anymore at that time, but police continue to investigate the man's disappearance.
I noticed that detectives have not yet added Kyle Peterson's case information into the National Missing and Unidentified Person Database (NAMUS).
It is a step that many jurisdictions (including agencies in California) are now requiring investigators to complete.
Sadly, once the initial flurry of publicity passes, the details of this disappearance and others are often forgotten by the public.
It is really difficult to find someone like Kyle Peterson if no one knows he or she is missing.
