    Have you seen Colleen or Dennis Weaver? Help us find this missing couple!

    On 10/17/2018 at 2:06 am, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office received a report that 53 year old Colleen Weaver and 60 year old Dennis Weaver of Eugene had not returned home after reportedly leaving to go foraging for mushrooms in the Clay Creek area near Walton.

    The Weavers were reported missing by family members who last saw them around noon on October 16th. The couple was expected back later that night but never returned. The Weavers were last seen driving a 2004 tan/gold Chevrolet Blazer (pictured) with Oregon license plate 757 BPP. The vehicle reportedly has an American flag sticker on the rear window along with a wolf sticker, also on the rear window.

    Colleen Weaver is described as a white female standing 5’6” tall and weighing 165 pounds with brownish-gray hair and brown eyes. Dennis Weaver is described as a white male standing 5’9” tall and weighing 160 pounds with long, black hair, brown eyes, and a mustache and beard. Although dogs are pictured with the Weavers, the dogs are not believed to be with them.

    Lane County Search and Rescue and Douglas County Search and Rescue are searching for the couple and are asking anyone who has seen Colleen or Dennis Weaver, or their vehicle, to call 541-682-4141.

    Best case scenario I can come up with is that maybe their vehicle broke down or they ran out of gas or their tires got stuck somewhere, so they're just hunkering down hoping they'll be found soon? At least in that case they'd be relatively safe and have shelter. It appears to be a heavily-forested area, so their vehicle probably wouldn't be visible from drone or helicopter. I hope they're found safe soon.

    I like your scenario and am hoping with you. I hope they had some snacks and water in vehicle though if the couple were planning on going back that night it makes me fear they did not.
    I wish I could tell if there are any of the recreation centers nearby the area spoken about.

    Missing mushroom pickers found unharmed
    UPDATE: A Eugene couple reported missing Wednesday has been located safe in the Cottage Grove area.

    "A family friend said that the couple had decided to stay with family members in Cottage Grove, but neglected to tell their daughter about their change in plans. She became concerned and contacted authorities when her parents did not return home Tuesday night as planned."

    The best kind of outcome. I’ll bet they tell their daughter next time!
