    QUICK FACTS:

    Co-workers contacted police
    Police do not think he is a crime victim, at this time
    Milton drives 2000 Honda Accord, license plate number ABR2611
    Joshua Ryan Milton, 36, is a Lieutenant with the Seattle Fire Department. He is married with a 3-year-old son.

    Co-workers contacted police when he did not arrive for his 5:30 p.m. shift as a paramedic student at Harborview Medical Center, according to the Seattle Police Blotter.

    Milton joined the Seattle Fire Department in 2012, and was recently accepted into the paramedic program.

    Police have attempted to locate Milton and contact him by phone, but they have been unsuccessful.."

    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."

    That seems very odd to me - to call police when a paramedic student misses a shift. And interesting that the police took up the case and are actively searching for him.

    I wonder what's not being said here.

    I thought the same thing - maybe he just caught the flu and is sleeping in?

    Missing Seattle firefighter's car found at Deception Pass
    SEATTLE -- The car belonging to missing Seattle firefighter Joshua Ryan Milton was found at Deception Pass by park employees at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

    Washington State Patrol responded and verified that it was Milton’s car. Seattle police said the 36-year-old firefighter is still missing, and search and rescue efforts are underway.

    Police began the search for Milton after he didn't show for work Thursday evening, the Seattle Police Department said Friday morning.

    Milton was last seen near Harborview Medical Center around 3:30 p.m. Thursday, after taking an exam. He was supposed to return for his shift at 5:30 p.m., but never made it.

    Seattle Fire officials are concerned for his safety.

    A snippet from a commenter on an SPD FB post:

    "Josh was spotted via video surveillance yesterday at 11am in a target store in Woodinville making a purchase and he did not appear distressed."

    (I am very new here and am slowly learning the rules -- apparently the above is not allowed? However I do deem it conducive to the search.)

    Snipped from the KOMO News link...
    ...Investigators said Milton bought a phone charger and baby wipes. He then sat in his car for about ten minutes and left.

    It is conducive to the search; however, we don't post quotes from commenters on Facebook pages. That same information can be found at http://www.komonews.com/news/local/P....html?mobile=y and because it's Mainstream Media (MSM) we are allowed to post it, so you should quote that article instead. Make sure that when you do quote something, you use [QUOTE.] [./QUOTE] tags (minus the . ) around the thing you're quoting, not quotation marks, and always post the link to your source!

    Anyways -

    His car being found at Deception Pass isn't a good sign. Its about two hours away and a bridge that many people have committed suicide on. There isn't really anything else around and the parking lot is tiny.

    Search and rescue efforts under way for missing Seattle firefighter
    The search moved 80 miles north of Seattle to Deception Pass, a picturesque park 80 miles north of Seattle, where Milton’s 2000 white Honda Accord was found by park workers Saturday morning, Q13 Fox reported.

    Park employees called police after they saw the car in a parking lot. There was no sign of the 36-year-old, who has a wife and a 3-year-old son.

    The keys were still inside the vehicle, KOMO-TV reported.

    “We’ve covered most of the park, but the biggest concern is the water, and that’s fast-moving water through there,” park manager Jack Hartt told the station. “It’s very difficult to find anybody if they are in the water.”

    KOMO reported that Milton was tracked to a Target store in between Seattle and Deception Pass Friday through phone records, social media and bank statements.

    It sounds like the wife was concerned about him harming himself--and that is why they ramped up the search so quickly, IMO. And sadly she may have been right.
