    The two articles (one from the Redding paper and one from the Mail Tribune out of Medford) each give a totally different spin on it.

    The MT does not mention the car being out of gas, the groceries left on the counter and implies that he wasn't going to MO like the Redding paper does.

    I hope he is just taking a break for a few days.

    Although I hesitate to put this out here: near his abandoned car there is a very tall bridge over Shasta Lake.
    His car being out of gas kinda contradicts that though. I wonder if he ran out and then went down to the boat ramps to see if he could get some?

    Haven't heard any updates but the "word about town" is that someone who worked there at the boat ramp is the one who reported the SUV being abandoned there.
    Also rumored that some of his friends noted that he seemed absentminded or overly preoccupied as of late.

    Where are you Dr. McIntosh?

    He is an asset to this community and I hope he is found soon, safe and happy.

    In that particular area it would be pretty hard to get lost IMHO, unless you went off on a day hike and got turned around after hours of hiking. The way that lake area is situated- the lake is huge with towering steep cliffs and mountains keeping it in it's boundaries. So IF you could walk away from the boat ramp area, you would just have to travel "downhill" or along the shoreline to find your way back.

    Given that he was out of gas, I wonder if he flagged down a trucker (or other driver) on I-5 to get a ride to the next gas station?
    There are a few gas stations about 3 miles or so away- BUT the only real way to walk there from where he parked was to walk on the shoulder of I-5.

    He looks sweet.

    After retiring from a long career of hard work this man should be able to relax and enjoy life now and spend time with family.

    I hope he can come home and do that.

    I can't believe no one know anything of his whereabouts. He is a very nice man and was supposed to play golf with my husband the weekend after he went missing. Any news would be most appreciated by his family and former co-workers.

    Thank you.

    Sadly, I haven't heard any news updates. I wonder if LE was able to trace him via a cell phone or something (unlikely in that area).

    Thank you all for your kind words and thoughts. From what I understand there has been no credit card activity and no cell phone use.
