Search continues for missing man
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.
