WATERLOO, Ore. -- A formal investigation for a missing Waterloo man started Wednesday, after he has been missing scheduled appointments over the past week, Linn County Sheriff's Office said.
Gary Douglas Baker, 69, has been missing appointments for his job with Smart Media Technologies since last Tuesday, officials from Linn County said. Baker is a marketing associate with Smart Media Technologies, which is based in Henderson, Nevada.
A representative for SMT told the sheriff's office that this is very unlike Baker, and they were worried that something may have happened to him.
