    OR - Wendell 'Jeff' Bowman, 56, Salem, 8 March 2015

    Salem man missing for 25 years returns, now gone again

    (Photo: Photo courtesy of Darlene Bowman)
    Wendell Jeffery Bowman is described as white, 6 feet, 4 inches tall and about 225 pounds. He has brown eyes and dark, graying hair. He was last seen wearing gray sweat pants, suede shoes, a blue, long-leeve T-shirt and a blue jacket with “Brandon” written on it. The family calls him Jeff.
    Darlene Bowman and her husband, Wendell, were having a normal Thursday afternoon at home on Dec. 18, 2013, until the phone rang.

    Darlene answered. On the other end was a police investigator from California. He told Darlene that officers had found her stepson, Wendell Jeffery Bowman, or Jeff as the family calls him.

    “I said this has got to be a mistake, but they assured me that it wasn’t,” she said. “I just started crying.”

    No one in the Bowman family had seen or heard from Jeff in 25 years, and Darlene and Wendell had long assumed the worst.

    “We thought he was in a grave somewhere,” she said.

    Now she is waiting by the phone, hoping for a similar call. After finding his way home from California in December, Jeff is missing again.

    The Marion County Sheriff’s office started looking for Jeff after he went missing on Sunday, March 8.

    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."

    I bet he'll turn up soon. He needs help. He is lucky to have her.
