Search continues for missing man

His car was found in Gold Hill Sports Park and might have been there for at least a week

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, JCSO, received a call Thursday regarding a vehicle that had been left in the parking lot north of the Gold Hill Sports Park.

Deputies discovered the vehicle had been rented by a missing person, Richard Walzer. JCSO Search and Rescue (SAR) responded and completed a search of this area along the Rogue River.

Neither Walzer nor any additional clues were located.

“JCSO is seeking the public's help in locating Walzer as this is a busy recreational area which leads us to believe Walzer was most likely seen or contacted by someone,” a press release from the Sheriff’s Office stated.

Walzer is 6’2“ tall, weighs 220 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing a bluish-gray button-up shirt and blue jeans.

He was in a silver Nissan pickup truck and most likely had a full-size camera with him.

Investigation indicates Walzer may have left his vehicle on Friday Feb. 18 -- over a week ago.

Anyone with information or who might have seen Walzer, contact Sgt. Shawn Richards at 541-774-6800 and reference case no., 22-1035.
