    Search intensifies for missing man

    SUN VALLEY, Idaho -- Sun Valley Police are baffled by the mysterious disappearance of a 21-year-old man.

    Police Chief Cam Daggett says Dexter Gannon was visiting an old high school friend who lives in the Morningstar neighborhood of Elkhorn in Sun Valley on Dec. 30. When the friend went to check on him the next morning, Gannon was gone. The pair had planned to go skiing that Friday.

    Family members told police that Gannon was distressed at the time of his disappearance. He left his cell phone and wallet at the home.

    Got a picture from your link, RL

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Sun Valley police search for missing Blaine County man

    He was wearing Merrell snow boots with a lug sole and a "Quicksilver" brand snowboard jacket with a wild yellow and teal pattern, Dagget said.

    Temperatures in and around Sun Valley have been "way cold," Daggett said. "Below zero every night. It's very cold here and its going on the fourth day."

    Gannon has "broken his patterns," missing appointments he would normally meet. While the man has a habit of taking walks when he's upset, he's never disappeared before, Gannon said.

    "It's a welfare check," he said. "He was having an an emotional time. But he's an adult and he can be where he wants to be and do what he wants to do."

    Sad news. R.I.P. Dexter.

    Missing man found dead in Sun Valley neighborhood

    SUN VALLEY, Idaho -- Sun Valley Police say the body of a 21-year-old man missing since last Thursday was found Tuesday afternoon in a Sun Valley neighborhood.

    Police say a citizen volunteer found Dexter Gannon's body around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday near Morningstar and Keystone in the Elkhorn area. The cause of death is under investigation.

    Steve Gannon, the father of Dex Gannon, released a statement to the Idaho Mountain Express Tuesday saying the family believes his son took his own life.

    He said for the past year his son had been experiencing emotional and psychological problems, and left Rice University in Texas in 2010 to return to the Wood River Valley for medical treatment.

    On the evening of Dec. 30, Dex posted a farewell on Facebook, and another message on his cell phone stating: 'I love you all."

    Steve Gannon says Dex left the house with a loaded weapon taken from the family's home.

    Rest in peace, Dexter.

    Based on the family's statement, it sure sounds like suicide. Cause of death under investigation, though.
