    Hello everyone,

    I am actually Joseph's son. Our family has been deeply saddened by this. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated it.

    We've been monitoring his cell phone for activity (iphone - phones been powered off since last attempted call), his bank accounts for activity (no withdrawals or uses), searching all local forms of transportation (no record of him using any), called everyone from call history (no one has heard from him), called all relatives and friends (no one has heard from him), searched the local area where his truck was found and where the last call came from (no sign or trace of him).

    We are honestly lost, if you have any other advice, any would be greatly appreciated. We are willing to look into all possibilities.

    Thank you

    Welcome kamonjj!
    Thanks for your post!
    We are a great group of people here at WS and hope we can help.
    Hugs!!! I know this must be so difficult.
    This is the first I had seen about your dad, so I will have to do some reading/research.
    I hope I can contribute more to the thread for him.
    I hope he is found safe and soon!
    God Bless!!

    Is there any place that he would go to for solace?
    Any special place that he could have gone to from his past that made him happy?
    Could he have gone to St. Ursula Church?
    I read the obituary of your mom. Could he have gone to where she is buried perhaps?
    IMOO.

    ETA:
    I see that your grandmother, your dad's mom was buried in the Union Dale Cemetery.
    Is it possible he could have gone there?

    I see that he has had a lot of sadness within the last several years due to the loss of his wife and mom.
    Maybe he went someplace to clear his head for awhile?
    IMOO.

    Thanks for the reply. We have searched the cemeteries many times, and every time, nothing. No foot prints, or the fixing of the wreath that was knocked over (he would have fixed that because he is obsessed with the perfection of the grave site). This was one of the first places I went Wednesday morning prior to finding his truck in southside.

    We thought he may have went to his camp, but it is closed for the winter with no electric or water. I asked the owners to double check and they did without finding a trace that he had been there. Not to mention, it would be a long haul in a cab from southside. No busses go nearly that distance (pymatuning pa).

    We are hoping he went somewhere to clear his head. However, to do it in a manner of not telling anyone, and not having spent any money yet has us very uneasy to say the least.

    Where on the south side was his truck located?

    There is a thread for Paul Kochu and he is missing from the south side of Pittsburgh.
    He is missing from around 2115 Wharton Street by the Giant Eagle.

    Did Joseph work around this area?
    The search and rescue have been out looking for Paul Kochu.
    Have the search and rescue helped to look for Joseph yet?

    I am not from Pittsburgh, so I don't know the area other than looking at maps in
    relation to Missing Paul Kochu.

    Can you give the address (or near) the address where his truck was found?
    Maybe there is video of Joseph yet to be discovered?
    There was a video discovered for Paul Kochu, so it's possible, maybe there's video of Joseph as well?
    IMOO.

    I found this link to Moraine Sailing Club.

    http://www.morainesailingclub.org/We...r/sepoct01.pdf

    From Sept/Oct 2001 issue:
    "Welcome New MSC Members"
    "Joseph & Theresa Kamon Pittsburgh, PA"

    Is it possible he could have gone to Lake Arthur in Moraine State Park?
    Is this the Camp you are referring to, or another camp?
    IMOO.

    He did work in the southside, and his truck was located behind his work. 41 terminal way. Its just over a mile from the giant eagle Paul was last seen in front of.

    The search and rescue team did start searching the water the day after his truck was found. They obviously did not locate anything. I was planning on contacting them again tomorrow to see when they were planning on searching the water again.

    Welcome kamonjj and thanks for posting here about Joseph. I hope he is found safe, sound & quickly.

    I haven't been able to locate a lot of info yet...do we know if Tuesday was an otherwise ordinary day for him? Can you give us an idea of how he spent the day, if known? Did he work his usual schedule and if so, what did coworkers say?

    I tried to access a video from one of the first links but I couldn't get it to work so am not sure what info I missed out on.

    Keeping Joseph in my prayers....sorry you're going through this.

    Tuesday was not an ordinary day for him at all. He left work early on monday, and he took tuesday off to get his affairs in order (that is what he told his boss). Wednesday he was a no call no show.

    **on another note, His girlfriend sought help from a psychic last night, and she told her he is face down in the water. ** I do not believe this is true, just wanted to let you guys know.

    He left work early on Monday, took Tuesday off to get affairs in order and Wednesday he was a no show, but yet his truck was found behind where he works.
    Could his truck have been parked there the whole time since Monday?

    (I did read that the last time he was seen or heard from was on Tuesday night.)
    http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2015/...haler-twp-man/

    Who was the last person he spoke to or saw at 10pm on Tuesday?

    It seems odd that his car was found there but he was a no show on Wednesday.
    It would seem like he had previous intentions of going to work, if his truck arrived on Wednesday, but he did not.
    If he took those days off to get affairs in order, why park the truck at work?
    When it has been said in the past that people get their affairs in order, that sounds bleak and sad.
    There is always hope, until there isn't.
    That's pretty shocking what that psychic said.
    Why would they say it like that?
    I am glad that you don't believe it.

    Did his girlfriend live with him?
    Did they have a good relationship?

    IMOO.

    I apologize in advance for all the questions, but with the more information that is readily available is a huge help.
    Your father told his boss he was getting his affairs in order?... I'm surprised his boss didn't notify anyone- usually, there is an emergency number to call in your files. I'm concerned a 52 yr. old would be doing this, unless he feels there is no way out.
    Has he recently been diagnosed with an illness?
    It's important to leave the bank account open for any activity & the phone as well.
    Are the police checking for unknown fingerprints on the vehicle or searching for any signs of a struggle at his residence?
    I'm glad you at least have the phone records available. Did the authorities provide the records or did you obtain them yourself?
