The mother of a man who went missing in May 2006 is still holding out hope that he, or at least his body, will be found.
Patrick "Thatcher" Mahurin, who moved to Ashland with his family in 1997, disappeared from his Cave Junction trailer on Mother's Day. Mahurin, a 42-year-old with a severe learning disability, was known around the Ashland community for always carrying his keyboard with him, which he played at various venues around town.
He moved to Cave Junction two months before his disappearance. His mother, Lee Mahurin of Ashland, said she usually heard from him several times a day.
On Mother's Day, she said he called and played her a song on the keyboard that he'd written. After the song, he got back on the line and told her he loved her.
"I just had this really foreboding feeling," she said. "I called him right back and he was gone."
Patrick has been missing 5 years tomorrow.
