    Hunt for Maryland man in Sedona wilderness

    Relatives and local volunteers are searching the wilderness near Sedona for a Maryland man who disappeared after he apparently drove cross-country on a spiritual quest.

    Family members believe Tim Waugaman, 26, of Germantown, Maryland, went into the wilderness to meditate but was not prepared with enough food, water or other survival supplies. They have hired a private search-and-rescue team and were joined by about 40 volunteers who came up from the Phoenix-metropolitan area Saturday.

    Surely would be cooler in the thick woods but in town of Sedona it has been about 10-15 degrees above averages the last week. Highs in the 90's and lows in the mid 60s. Avg temps in Sedona this time of year is 85/51.

    Map for the Church address, street level gives you a good indication of the area: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Sedo...F-8&ei=Jha1Ub-9KeeQigLfwoCYBA&ved=0CAsQ_AUoAg

    Beautiful area of the country but very thick wilderness.

    According to the article, he is 6'7" tall. i am thinking that if anyone has seen him or sees him, they may remember him just for being tall rather than remembering his face. I hope his family finds him, he sounds like such a good guy!

    News reports say he left his car in the Parking lot of the Methodist Church:

    He had left these supplies in the car:
    Timeline:
    ... Left for trip sometime over Memorial Day weekend from Germantown, Maryland to Sedonna
    ... Missing Persons report filed by family May 28th
    ... His Car found in the parking lot of the Sedona United Methodist Church on June 1, where church officials said it had been parked for about a week.

    His foot prints would be easier to recognize than most:
    He wears a size 15 shoe.

    So they verified it was actually him taking the money out of the ATM?

    From the article in AZCentral...

    Detectives believe Tim Waugaman, 26, tapped into his bank account in California on Friday, said Chief Raymond Cota of the Sedona Police Department. Police acquired a photo of Waugaman using an ATM on that day.

    Definitely unexpected twist. Glad he is alive! How did he get to Santa Monica when his car was found in Sedona. Who did he meet up with? Why would he not call his parents?

    But he still hasn't contacted his parents...
    I hope everything is OK with Tim.
    Wonder if they will release the ATM photo.
    Was his car working when they found it - maybe he left it there because it had broken down?

    Agreed.

    Not one MSM story about Tim's disappearance since the information about him being seen on ATM video in Santa Monica surfaced. Nothing in Santa Monica local news alerting the residents about Tim possibly being in the area....The guy is 6'7, surely there is a good chance just getting his picture out there, that someone would recognize him in the Santa Monica area. Strange that a deeply religious guy wouldn't tell his folks he was okay.

    I havent been able to find any further updates on the whereabouts of Tim.

    I hope that he is OK, and not in any danger.

    Does anyone know if Tim Waugaman was finally tracked down after being seen in California (after the bank transaction footage) and found to be safe?

    Thankyou for the page link.
    I hope Tim finds what he is looking for in India - and I hope someone sends the family a recent picture of Tim in India, just to make sure he is OK.
    I hope he can contact his family soon.

    Thanks again.
