    Deputies say two men on the way to a concert are missing under suspicious circumstances. Their empty car was found in Yakima County.

    Josiah Hildebrand and Jon Cleary were on their way to the Gorge Amphitheatre to attend a Dead and Co. concert, but they never made it.

    The pair was traveling in a light blue 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid with California license plates.

    Hildebrand, 25, is described as being 5’8” and 165 pounds. He has blue eyes and light brown, wavy hair.

    A $15,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the return of Hildebrand.

    2 men missing under suspicious circumstances; car found in Yakima Co.

    Liz said she didn’t know right away that her son had gone missing. For a few days, she thought he had lost his phone because no one could get in touch with him. She learned that something was wrong through a message from a friend that the car he was believed to be in was found abandoned.

    A deputy with the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office who was trying to track down why a blue Honda Civic had been abandoned under odd circumstances in his area had contacted the listed owner, she explained.

    That person, a previous owner, said that a man named Jon Cleary had been driving the vehicle recently. Later, it was learned that Jon had last texted a friend showing a photo of him and another man in the Honda.

    [​IMG]
    The last known photo of Jon Cleary and Josiah Hilderbrand was taken in the Honda Civic about 4:45 p.m. June 7.

    As concern about Cleary arose over the next few days, the photo was shared among friends and another person recognized the other man in the Honda as Josiah Hilderbrand, a former resident of both Humboldt and Mendocino County. Then the friend notified Liz

    Before reading this, my first thought was "I wonder if they drove through Humboldt County?"

    Missing Under Suspicious Circumstances: A Mendocino Mother Searches for Her Only Son Who Was Raised Here in the Emerald Triangle

    Josiah Hilderbrand, age 25, was last known to be headed to the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington State with another man, Jon Cleary on June 7 to see Dead & Company (a band consisting of several members of the Grateful Dead).

    His mother explained that with the help of one of her pet sitting clients, the reward for information is now $15,000.

    The vehicle Josiah and Jon were last seen in, a light blue 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid, was found abandoned in the county of Yakima also in Washington state.

    None of the close-knit Deadhead community had seen him at the June 7 concert.

    I can’t, it’s the fb login page. Maybe it’s just because I don’t have a fb?

    Cleary appears to have records in Jackson County, OR. Driving while suspended and a couple of substances, 2017 and 2018. Not a huge surprise, but something to factor in...

    Also a substance arrest in Greene Co. MO in July 2018.

    Assuming it's the same guy. Looks a lot more serious in the mugshots, but enough similarities... Age is right.

    Edited to add more and express mild uncertainty that it's the same guy. Maybe someone better at analyzing faces can chime in.

    Well I went to Dead & Co. here in Virginia this evening, and kept my eye open for either of them just in case somehow they made it to the show and just stayed on tour. It happens. But TBH, I was more keeping my open for Mr. Cleary, because he seems to be a troublesome globetrotter.

    In Florida, possession of heroin, possession of cocaine, drug paraphernalia, transportation of drugs, armed robbery and burglary, driving on a revoked license, similar charges in MO. (www.searchquarry.com). This is not going to have a happy ending. Road trip with druggie career criminal, abandoned car? Prayers for Josiah's Mom.
