    This poor man is still missing from 2012, and his brother in law wrote a letter to an OR newspaper in March 2014:

    What happened to this Marine?

    Almost a year and a half ago, my dear brother-in-law, Royce Cratty, went for a walk in the woods near his home outside Sutherlin. That was the last time his family saw or heard from him. A short search was called off, for many reasons that made no sense to me.

    I hate to say this, but had this happened in my neck of the woods, things would have been different. I am a World War II and Korean War veteran. It would be a cold day in hell when we left a U.S. Marine behind.

    Royce was born in the “wonderful” state of Oregon. He was an old-time high-lead logger and a U.S. Marine veteran. Royce was left behind ... like a dog!

    There is an old hymn, “... look on Heaven’s scenes, they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.”

    I hope his letter stirs up some interest in this case again.

    A Douglas County landowner on Sunday found human remains that authorities have identified as a 74-year-old Umpqua man who was reported missing nearly two years ago, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said this morning.

    Royce Paul Cratty was reported missing in September 2012 by his wife after he did not return home from a hike west of Sutherlin.
