    Thanks for making these many threads, Gardner.

    Kim Kemp joins with the Northcoast Journal in exploring those missing in the Emerald Triangle...Humboldt, Trinity and Mendocino counties. She lists everyone missing in the three counties...at least the ones she could find listed.

    Note the event for the families of the missing in Sacramento June 9-10. Quoting Kym’s beautiful writing....

    [FONT=&quot]Long after the missing posters on those who have vanished have faded and blown away in the wind, some family members will keep vigil. Some will keep vigil silently–barely acknowledging out loud the loose thread that caught on their heart when their loved one vanished and which now threatens to unravel their life. Some will keep vigil by reaching out to the media or police or both on a regular basis, hoping even decades after their loss that they will get answers. They hope but, at the same time, they fear to know for sure that their loved one is dead.[​IMG][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]If you have a family or friend missing, an event this June 9 in Sacramento may be helpful to you. This free event will have law enforcement available to help record information. Family members can give DNA samples if they choose to help with identification. They are also “encouraged to bring photos, along with medical and dental records of their missing loved ones.”[/FONT]

    From the link, he may have been suicidal and had a handgun.

    Charles Detweilder Allen was last seen Oct. 21, 1985, in Arcata, when he was 24. He was reported missing by a long-time friend on Nov. 4 and reportedly may have been suicidal and in possession of a handgun. He's described as standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. Allen would now be 56.
