    Deputies say the ignition in Pugh’s car had been “punched,” meaning that a screwdriver was required to start and stop the car’s engine. Deputies later learned from people Pugh lives with that he had damaged the car’s ignition.

    Deputies say they found personal items inside the car belonging to Pugh and another person.

    Pugh is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. No one knows what he was wearing when he disappeared.

    On October 4, 2015, Washington County Search and Rescue assisted detectives conduct an extensive search around the vicinity where Matthew Pugh's Taurus was found abandoned.

    Original Release Below:

    Sheriff's Detectives Search for Missing Cornelius Man

    September 29, 2015-Detectives are searching for a missing man whose vehicle was located abandoned with the engine running. This case is being treated as suspicious due to several circumstances.

    On September 27, 2015, a concerned family member contacted a Sheriff's Deputy, serving the City of Cornelius, to report Matthew Pugh, 25, from Cornelius had been missing since the day before.

    On September 26, 2015, at about 3:00 p.m., a Sheriff's Deputy was called to the 32900 block of SW Plum Tree Court south of Hillsboro concerning a 1994 Ford Taurus that was left running, unoccupied and blocking a driveway with no one around. The Taurus was registered to Mr. Pugh. The Taurus ignition was "punched" requiring a screwdriver to start and stop the engine. There were personal items in the vehicle belonging to Mr. Pugh and another person.

    The deputy contacted people that live with Mr. Pugh to gather any possible information concerning his whereabouts. It was learned that Mr. Pugh had previously damaged the ignition on his Taurus. The deputy was told that no one had seen or heard from Mr. Pugh since very early on September 26. Matthew Pugh has not shown up for work and has not contacted anyone close to him. It is very unusual for him to be out of contact with his family and friends for this extended period of time.




    Washington County Violent Crimes Detectives began assisting with the case. They are conducting extensive interviews to gather information that will assist in locating Mr. Pugh.

    Matthew Pugh is 5'8" tall, 180 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. The clothing that he was wearing when he went missing is unknown. A photo of Mr. Pugh is attached.

    Sheriff's Detectives are asking if anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Matthew Pugh to please call 503-846-2700.

    wow. weird that flyers are being taken down.

    Is it rude for me to ask if he was involved in drugs? I just wonder if he got mixed up with the wrong people...

    I haven't been able to find any mention of drugs, but it's definitely possible. I have to admit I wondered the same thing. I don't think it's rude to ask at all (IMO). It's in no way being judgmental, but it's like mental illness in a way as it may change the nature of the search or what avenues need to be explored more.

    I think drugs, or maybe alcohol, are likely involved.
