    OR - Ronald Leckenby, 45, Silver Falls SP, 6 Sept 2014

    Sheriff: Man disappears into woods at Silver Falls State Park

    [snip]

    Ronald Leckenby, 45, from Aloha, Ore. was in the car with his son, Pearce Leckenby, traveling to the state park for the afternoon on Sept. 6. Pearce said Leckenby got out of the car and walked away into a heavily forested area. He did not take his wallet, cell phone, or any other personal items with him. Pearce waited for his father to return, but when he did not, Pearce drove the white Nissan Altima home and called the Sheriff's office three days later on Tuesday, Sept. 9.

    Snipped from the 3rd link...

    ...He was wearing a brown suit when he reportedly walked into the woods, deputies said.

    Detectives are asking anyone who may have seen Ronald Leckenby or his a white 2014 Nissan Altima on Saturday, Sept. 6, between Aloha and Silver Falls State Park, to contact the sheriff's office.

    Ronald's Altima has a DMV temporary permit in the rear window and "CARR" dealership placards where the license plate would be.

    Strange story. Why wear a suit into the woods? Why didn't the son report him missing until 3 days later?

    Not sure if this is relevant, but his mother died last month (August) and she had worked for the Forest Service for about 40 years.

    Kind of reminds me of the Edwin Birch case that also involved a father and son, the woods in the PNW, and the father going missing. That one was from mid-July.

    (Thread is linked above) They supposedly went hiking on the same trail, but from opposite directions and were supposed to meet in the middle, and the dad never showed up. They were doing it, supposedly, for him to get into better health... Son reported dad missing at 1:30 am


    And while I was trying to find that thread, I saw this one, another father and son in the PNW also involving trails or hiking. Though in this case neither have been located (though their car was) - they were from KY. Car found in the Mt Hood area. Last seen by neighbors/family back in KY in mid-August.

    This case is bizarre. I also did a google search and saw that Ronald, the missing man, has prior arrests. I don't think I can link to the sources, but it's easy enough to find. Haven't finished digging, so I don't know what the priors are for...

    Edit. Oh man. I don't know if it's okay to post prior mugshot / arrest info. He is, after all, the victim in this case...

    My son and his GF went hiking in the park all day today! I'll have to ask him if he saw anything suspicious.

    It's okay to sleuth the victim under normal circumstances, but unless his prior arrest record has something to do with him going missing, it's kinder not to post the links, KWIM? But, it's enough to note that maybe he is in hiding due to his past issues? I mean, maybe he just wants to get away from his problems and start all over?

    IMO, someone needs to tell the son to lighten up on all that FB posting. It can't be helping him, and it might be hurting.
