    CO - John C. Cizek, 71, Alamosa, 12 June 2016

    Police search for missing man who came to Colorado to pan for gold

    John C. Cizek was last seen on June 12 at the McDonald’s in Alamosa, Colorado. He was traveling in a 2016 Minnie Winnie Winnebago, after telling friends he was headed to Colorado to pan for gold above 10,000 feet.
    Investigators are also interested in the movements of David Little, who is alleged to have fired shots at police in Edgewater as they were trying to arrest him on an outstanding warrant for sexual assault of a child.

    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."

    From Los' link:

    At the time of his arrest, Little told police he had an RV parked nearby. Golden police officers were then able to determine that the RV belonged to Cizak.

    Do I understand this correctly? John is missing and his RV was found in the possession of child molester, David Little?

    So I'm confused. They arrested Little but they're currently interested in his movements? Does that mean he's out or does that mean they would like info on where he was during the time John went missing?

    EDGEWATER, Colo. -- A man accused of sexually assaulting a girl was shot by Golden police near West 22nd Avenue and Jay Street on Tuesday [June 21], the Edgewater Police Department said.

    Police said 40-year-old David E. Little sexually attacked the girl a few months ago in Golden and she was placed in a safe house in Edgewater.

    Somehow, police said, the man tracked the girl down and he was spotted in the area Monday night. The girl notified police, who then followed the man Tuesday morning.

    When he reappeared near the safe house, Little rammed the police cars several times and attempted to flee.

    Video at the link shows that Little was driving a White Jeep (Cherokee?) at the time of the shooting and arrest in Edgewater.

    Was the white Jeep in Alamosa with Little on June 12? If so, how did he get it back to the Golden area? Tow bar behind the RV?

    Who are Little's acquaintances in Alamosa?

    Presumably law enforcement knows who they are and have questioned them. Seems to me that they might have information that could shed some light as to Little's presence in Alamosa and possibly some specifics as to his departure.

    Does the Jeep even belong to Little? If not, who does it belong to?

    Hmm.

    Hooper is on Hwy 17, not 285. 285 and 17 both run north out of Alamosa. They run parallel about 15 miles apart until 17 joins in with 285 about 30 miles north of Hooper.

    If one is headed north out of Alamosa towards Golden and the Denver area, 17 is the shorter and quicker route out of Alamosa.

    Hooper is a very small spot in the road. I think I have ventured through the town streets to take some photos, but I normally stop just north of Hooper in Moffat for a latte.

    The McDonalds where Cizek was last seen is on Craft and 285 on the western edge of town towards Monte Vista. It's possible that Cizek intended on traveling west/north on 285.

    Also possible that either at the McDonald's or somewhere along Cizek's route he encountered Little.

    10 hours between the last time Cizek was seen and when the RV was spotted in Hooper (or on 285 in that general vicinity.) Possible that the RV may have traveled from the McDonald's up 285 and then crossed over on 112 to Hooper on 17.

    I'm guessing this is among the information LE is looking for as to Little's movements.

    A lot can happen in a ten-hour period.

    I don't imagine that Little would have driven the RV out of Hooper at 10:30 pm intending to drive straight through the night to Golden. Possible he stopped somewhere for the night.

    It's a 190 mile trip from Hooper to Golden up 285/17. When you leave the San Luis Valley, travel time gets much slower.

    A speed freak might drive straight through, though.

    Link to the press release at the City of Alamosa website.

    The photos of Cizek, Little, and the RV are larger.

    Authorities are asking for the public’s help in searching for a 71-year-old California man who is thought to have been murdered while visiting Colorado on a trip apparently to pan for gold.

    The suspect in the case, David Little, died at the Jefferson County jail this week in an apparent suicide. Little was charged with first-degree murder.
