Eugene Police are looking for a missing man with a head injury. Michael Sawyer first disappeared from his north Eugene home yesterday morning. Police usually wait 24 hours before taking a missing person's report but because of Sawyer's history of disorientation they began searching almost immediately.

Michael Sawyer is a retired police officer from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he moved to Eugene with his wife just two months ago.
Ever since receiving a head injury in an accident last year Michael Sawyer has been plagued with memory and disorientation problems.
The 59 year old was last seen Saturday morning and is believed to be driving a gold 1998 Toyota Camry with New Mexico license plates, number 5-0-4 M-R-R.

His daughter Jennifer Radley says, "He has salt and pepper hair, he's 5'10", he's pretty thin he weighs about 140 pounds. He's very chatty very talkative. He was wearing blue sweats blue t-shirt."
Both family members and Eugene police officers have looked for Sawyer and efforts to check his spending have failed.

If you have seen Michael Sawyer or his car you are asked to call Eugene police at 682-5121.
Eugene Police currently have several people listed as missing but when someone is known to have a head injury or some type of medical problems concerns are heightened.

I was returning from Brookings and did a double take when passing the Dean Creek Elk Viewing area. The elk were only 10-15 from the fence.

This was the moonrise that greeted me last night on my way home to Eugene from caring for the cats at the Springfield TNR Project. I haven't seen the sky glow like that since the fire that took down the Swanson Mill in July 2014.
