    FYI - Matthew McConnell-Hegland was the body found in the Willamette River that is referenced on Peter's page.

    Also,according to the page. a post by his mother Denise says he's still missing. Why has there been no information psted about him ? Nothing since he went missing.

    As I was looking through The Charley Project as I'm sure a lot of us do, I noticed that in the resolved area of the website, the case of Peter Sean Kosky was shown as being located deceased, but there was no other details regarding him. I also tried to look it up through Yahoo (sorry, I'm a Yahoo guy, not Google) and on Facebook, but I was not able to verify that he was indeed located deceased. I sent a message to one of the mods a while ago, but I received no response. I've always found The Charley Project to be a very credible and accurate source of information in regards to the missing. Can anyone else verify this? Here's the resolved cases link that I found.. http://charleyproject.org/resolved.html

    That has to be a simple mistake I think. His FB page states he is still missing this month, and it appears to be run by his family.

    A Peter Sean Kosky died in Oregon in 2009, And I wonder if the confusion has possibly stemmed from there?

    Oh dear. This is coming high on google searches now. Maybe someone on FB could let his family know about the mistake on the charley project page, and that we are discussing it? They could get an awful shock if they come across found d.......... in a google search.

    ETA - unless I am making a mistake. I'm not on FB and can't see full dates. That latest entry is Nov this year, isn't it?

    I'll send a message to Meaghan who runs Charley... His Facebook page was updated just a few days ago saying he was still missing.

    I didn't hear back from Meaghan but it look like she removed Peter from her "resolved" section.

    I found this article when I was looking up info for Peter yesterday. I'm sure it must be the same man, as the age, names and hometown match up.

    What a tragedy that he seems to have had hardly two years from recovering from a severe accident, to going missing. I am wondering if the injuries he received then were the cause of his epilepsy, or if existing epilepsy was to blame for the accident?

    I'm not trying to sleuth a missing person, but it seems obvious from what I have read that Peter meets all the criteria for endangered missing, but doesn't seem to have been categorized that way. Don't authorities do that in OR?

    I am wondering if some epilepsy charities might be able to offer the family some help and support in this case. I know the FB page doesn't have many updates, but this must be so hard for them; no media updates and very little support from others on the FB page either. I get the feeling they don't know where to turn now. :(

    This is a newly-released, step-by-step missing person's guide, compiled by a family member of a missing person. It is Australian, but I think it contains very good guidance that is relevant for the US missing too.
