    I havent found a last seen date yet
    but
    Authorities say his cell phone was pinged from a nearby cell tower at 5 a.m. on June 30.
    It shows that he was headed northwest.

    Randy French went salmon fishing in the Riggins area and was planning on sleeping in his 2004 Chevy Avalanche. It
    Friends of a Boise man who went on a fishing trip last week and has not returned home are concerned about his well-being and hope he is found or heard from soon.

    Randy French is 54 years old, 6-foot-1 with graying hair, a trimmed beard and brown eyes.

    Man still missing after failing to return from fishing trip

    Idaho County officials say French was last seen in the Salmon Rapids Lodge parking lot Thursday night. They say he was making plans to go fishing on Friday but was gone that next morning before the arranged trip. It was reported that French seemed confused and disoriented and could be suffering from a health issue at the time.

    French was driving a Maroon 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche pickup with specialty Salmon Idaho license plate 9435D.

    The family of a missing Boise man is speaking out as they continue their tireless search efforts to find Randy French.

    <snipped by me to add additional details from previous post>

    Witnesses reported that French seemed confused and disoriented, as well as shaky and dizzy at times, and could have been suffering from medical issues going on. Taylor believes his father was on new medication that caused him to act that way.

    (Searches have been done by land and water. No air search yet. His truck has not been located)

    snipped from that article:

    ....found a medical item belonging to French five miles north of Riggins on the bank of the Salmon River.



    This is very worrisome for me. But if his truck went in the river there would be signs of it? Tracks?

    There are some details in the comment section of this Facebook post, that tell a bit more about the day he didn't show up to meet his friends.

    Your looking for comments on 7/4 by 'MT'.

    The Idaho County Sheriff's Office said their search efforts are now focused in the area between the Lake Creek Bridge and Fiddle Creek. French was last known to be in the Salmon Rapids Lodge parking lot in Riggins.*

    French is driving a maroon 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche pickup truck with specialty salmon Idaho plates 9435D. Anyone with information about French or his vehicle should call the Idaho County Sheriff's Office at 208-983-1100.

    The medical item belongs to John "Randy" French who has been missing since July 1. The Idaho County Sheriff's Office said someone located the item about 5 miles north of Riggins. Family members confirmed it was French's.

    The sheriff's office is now focusing search efforts in the area between the Lake Creek Bridge (MP 6 Salmon River Rd.) and Fiddle Creek (Hwy 95 MP 200.5).
