    OR - Max Eugene McIntosh, 75, Medford, 22 March 2013

    http://www.redding.com/news/2013/mar...etired-doctor/

    Max Eugene McIntosh, 75, was reported missing Tuesday after he left his Medford home March 22 and never showed up in Missouri, where he was headed, or called his family. But the day he left home, his Ford Explorer was found out of gas near Lake Shasta on the Packer’s Bay access road, Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau said.
    Budreau said McIntosh planned to leave on March 22 to stay with his cousin in Missouri, but there was nothing packed in his SUV. In addition, Budreau said there were groceries left sitting out at the Medford home where he lived alone.
    There hasn’t been any activity on McIntosh’s cell phone since he called a family member around 11 a.m. on the 22nd, Budreau said, nor has his credit card been used.

    Shasta County sheriff’s deputies are searching the area where the SUV was found, but so far have found no sign of McIntosh. Medford police don’t know the circumstances of his disappearance but say so far they have no indications of foul play.

    McIntosh is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, 198 pounds and has gray hair and blue eyes, Budreau said.

    The two articles (one from the Redding paper and one from the Mail Tribune out of Medford) each give a totally different spin on it.

    The MT does not mention the car being out of gas, the groceries left on the counter and implies that he wasn't going to MO like the Redding paper does.

    I hope he is just taking a break for a few days.

    Although I hesitate to put this out here: near his abandoned car there is a very tall bridge over Shasta Lake.
    His car being out of gas kinda contradicts that though. I wonder if he ran out and then went down to the boat ramps to see if he could get some?

    Rumor***rumor***rumor***

    Haven't heard any updates but the "word about town" is that someone who worked there at the boat ramp is the one who reported the SUV being abandoned there.
    Also rumored that some of his friends noted that he seemed absentminded or overly preoccupied as of late.

    Where are you Dr. McIntosh?

    He is an asset to this community and I hope he is found soon, safe and happy.

    In that particular area it would be pretty hard to get lost IMHO, unless you went off on a day hike and got turned around after hours of hiking. The way that lake area is situated- the lake is huge with towering steep cliffs and mountains keeping it in it's boundaries. So IF you could walk away from the boat ramp area, you would just have to travel "downhill" or along the shoreline to find your way back.

    Given that he was out of gas, I wonder if he flagged down a trucker (or other driver) on I-5 to get a ride to the next gas station?
    There are a few gas stations about 3 miles or so away- BUT the only real way to walk there from where he parked was to walk on the shoulder of I-5.

    He looks sweet.

    After retiring from a long career of hard work this man should be able to relax and enjoy life now and spend time with family.

    I hope he can come home and do that.
    Just my opinion!

    News of Dr. McIntosh

    I can't believe no one know anything of his whereabouts. He is a very nice man and was supposed to play golf with my husband the weekend after he went missing. Any news would be most appreciated by his family and former co-workers.

    Thank you.
