    WA - Po Han Lee, 93, Thurston County, 26 April 2014

    Po Han Lee


    Search underway for missing 93-year old Federal Way man -

    What started out as a family outing to pick ferns near Olympia, has now turned into a search and rescue operation. Thurston County Sheriff’s deputies, along with search and rescue crews, are looking for a 93-year old Federal Way man in the woods near the Nisqually Indian Reservation. The man, Po Han Lee, was out picking ferns on Saturday morning when he got separated from his family, Thurston Sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Brady told Q13 Fox News.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    No no no.... I VERY much dislike it when the old folks go missing. I wonder what his present state of health is like, I've been surprised by the virility of some very elderly people. I do hope he's strong and mentally acute. *fret*

    I really worry too when I see an older person has gone missing. But a surprising number have been found safe and sound recently, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Hope he's back with family soon.

    LE suspended the search yesterday. SAR exerts believe he left the area in a vehicle.

    I'm heartbroken about that because it's something often said when a dog loses a scent on the highway. People always seem to conclude the person got in a vehicle. Yet that almost never happens - it's just the dog lost the scent, not the person disappearing in a car.

    The most recent well known example of this is Teleka Patrick, but there are many more.

    I hope Mr Lee's family are continuing to search the area. He's healthy and fit, and may survive if help gets to him soon.

    Note: Mr Lee is named as Bohan (Bo) Lee in the Sheriff's release.

    Well, it's been fairly warm and dry. I wish we knew exactly where they were when he went missing. If he didn't get in a car with someone and he keeps walking, he should run into a road eventually.

    I hope he's found soon.

    Mr Lee is an 'avid walker'. I hope to heaven he's walked the right way, towards a town.

    Thomsen Rd is marked by the red pin, though the name doesn't show on this scale map.

    I think Mr Lee disappeared in that triangle formed by the roads in blue. If he's walked towards Olympia, there's hope. But if he's gone out the open end of the triangle towards Lake St Claire, or crossed Reservation Rd and gone further into the wilderness.....

    I cannot understand why searches are suspended when there are such large areas and it is so obviously a matter of life or death. Or why there is always the 'assurance' the missing person got into a car, when that is hardly ever the case.

    I wish volunteers could go out looking. Time is running out.

    Oh heck, the Korea Times is calling him Lee Bo-han.

    His missing status isn't coming up fully in searches, because of all the different names flying around.

    Welcome! I love when family checks in here, although the circumstances are troublesome to say the least. Were you with him the day he went missing?
