    29 year-old Justin Grant Bibow last had contact with family and friends on Sunday, March 10, 2019. He was reported missing to the Sheriff's Office on Tuesday, March 12, at 3:40 p.m.

    Deputies have been investigating the report and have entered Bibow into a nationwide database as missing. Attempts to locate Bibow have been unsuccessful.

    Deputies have learned that prior to being reported as a missing person, a Salem Police officer conducted a computerized records check on Bibow on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 2:27 a.m. Bibow could possibly still be in the Salem, Oregon area.

    Bibow is described as 5'10'' 320 lbs with hazel eyes and brown hair. He is associated with a white 2016 Dodge Ram Cummins pickup with Oregon license plate 850JTM.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact local law enforcement and reference Douglas County Sheriff's Office Case #19-1136.

    That caught my eye also. Why would the police be doing a computerized check of a person at 2:27 am, 13 hours before they were reported missing?

    Not sure about all states, but you can run a persons lic plates and driving record, as a LE officer without pulling someone over. It is done often in attempt to find people driving without license, warrants, etc.. Police may have been behind him at 0227 hrs and ran him. If this was the case the officer may not have seen any reason to stop Justin. So, I guess it depends on what is meant by a computerized check being done (with person present or not) and what OR's laws are concerning this topic.

    I'm glad they found him, but sad that he is deceased. RIP Justin.

    Thank you for that explanation! I never thought of LE running a check on a person without pulling someone over.

    I was also wondering about the burned truck. Once the coroner has determined the cause and manner of death, it will be easier to figure out why the truck was burned.

    I was thinking if it was suicide... maybe he was trying to make one last statement?

    To me, burning represents an attempted eradication of evidence, something may have happened in the car..
