    Missing - Randy Marion - Dinwiddie, VA

    Randy Marion, 25, from Matoaca, Virginia, has been missing since Saturday, February 9, 2008, about 9:30 p.m. He went with some friends, all taking turns riding his three-wheeler down a trail he was very familiar with. When it was his turn, he never returned. On Sunday police found his three-wheeler in a creek which leads to the Appomattox River, but no signs of Randy. Divers have searched this shallow creek and come up with absolutely nothing. Police told his mother that there is a tree across the creek that, God forbid, if he were in that water, his body could not have made it across. There is also a dam a little further up which they also say his body could not have crossed. He had a helmet on, which has not been found; he had a cell phone which has not been found. Police have searched by helicopter, with dogs for three days, divers...absolutely no trace of Randy. Virginia State Police are supposed to bring out bloodhounds today.

    Randy has a big heart and has always been extremely close to his mother. She needs answers. We all do.

    If anyone has ANY information, saw something suspicious around the area, heard any rumors, anything, please, please don't just let it go. Call Dinwiddie Police at (804)469-5388, even if you call anonymously.

    Update

    Please, please, keep praying for Randy and the family. He has been missing since Saturday night. Police have searched, a tracking team, human-scent detecting dogs, bloodhounds, divers...absolutely nothing. If you look at the creek where his three-wheeler was found, it is very shallow and rocky and lots of trees down in the water. No clues whatsoever have turned up. The Virginia State Police dive team is going back in Friday morning and said they would not come out of the water until they find Randy or are absolutely certain he is positively not in that water. Prayers, please! Prayers change things!!

    Thank you!

    Thanks again for all the prayers. Please continue to pray. The Virginia State Police dive team searched Friday and said unequivocally he is not in the water. The police conducted a ground search Saturday, Feb. 16, 2008, and said he is absolutely not on ground in the area and there is no trace and no clues. The police told his mother there is nothing else they can do at this point because there is no trace of evidence, so all they can do now is let "nature take its course." Please, keep praying!

    Did the police use blood hounds? Have they found any scent of him at all? This just sounds weird! I hope he's found safe! It's just strange that he wouldn't be in the water or the surrounding area. How long was it before he took his turn on the bike and when the bike was found in the creek?

    Wierd..

    Yes, I agree it is weird....Yes, the "best bloodhound in the State" was run with absolutely no hits, as well as human scent dogs were run three days with no hits. It just doesn't make sense. We won't give up, though. And we are absolutely certain he did not voluntarily disappear, which leaves us to suspect foul play. We just pray someone will come forward with ANY information, no matter how trivial it seems. 804-861-1212, Dinwiddie Crime Solvers.

    What have his friends said? They were there, they all took turns on the ATV and they all returned. How long was the trip to ride down the trail and back? Was there drinking involved? I ask the question to help me judge the frame of mind of the people who were with Randy.

    This is so strange. It's like aliens beamed him up or something. He has to be somewhere and you would think that it would be close by.

    Update

    Today marks three months and three days since Randy went missing. There are still NO leads at all. The friends say he was the last to go down the trail, which was not very long, but never returned. The case has been profiled by Crime Solvers, but still NO tips.

    As far as the drinking, the girlfriend said she and Randy split a six pack that day. But still no wallet, no keys, no cell phone, no clothing found. Nothing.

    Thanks for the prayers! Keep them coming please!!
