    OR - John Hicks, 47, Oakridge, Sept 2008


    John Hicks has been Missing since Sept. 7.
    At age 47, John left with only his cell phone. It's what he didn't take with him that raises concern. His trailer, possesions, and beloved dog, Bear, were left behind.

    [That's why everyone from the Oakridge Police Chief to Hicks' sister says something isn't right.That's why everyone from the Oakridge Police Chief to Hicks' sister says something isn't right.
    "That's how I knew," said Debra Brunken. "When I talked to the landlord and I said, the dog's gone? And he said, no he's here. And I said oh God, I'll be up as fast as I can come."
    So Brunken came to Oakridge, where Hicks has lived for the past two years. The part time handyman has the mentality of a 12-year-old, according to Brunken. He's a creature of habit, who calls her every day.]

    I HOPE I did this right. I looked around to see if there is already a thread on John Hicks, but didn't find one...if there already is one, feel free to let me know, or delete this one.

    Lots of frustration being felt by the family at the delay in looking into John's disappearance - see comments below this article.

    Apparently both parents had been lost quite recently. Sadly, it makes me wonder about John's mental state....

    (my bold)

    Just curious as to whether John was documented as being intellectually disabled and perhaps have a guardian ?

    Missing aside, it's a rather disturbing story to read if he truly did have the mentality of a 12 year old. Sounds like he had a limited support system.

    So this family has been trying to investigate this themselves by questioning the locals, and they are getting the above story from everyone? This could get ugly right quick. It seems like this family really needs some help.
