I cant beg for help anymore, Not once in 11 months did anyone but our own personal friends and family help me, not one agency in this whole state or county ever once helped or even offered. We know that he is dead and he was killed Sept. of last year

8 months now! Human life or death means nothing to to anyone anymore! This Summer please dont stay to long in Oakridge, Drive thru or ride real fast! avoid the center of Oakridge, thats where my brother was when someone killed him and dumped him!

7 Months now, still not giving up. I never will, until we find you! I miss you and mom and dad, someday we'll have our closure and hopefully someone will suffer the consequences, for taking you from us.

Debbie, Johns sister says ... on Saturday, Mar 7 at 12:28 AM

John has been gone now for 6 months, Doesn't anyone care that this could be one of you someday and our communities and the people that run them, will NOT care or come look for you! unless you have a higher social and financial background than he did!

Debbie says ... on Wednesday, Feb 4 at 11:45 PM

I know that John is dead, Chief Gomez knows it too. 5 months and NOTHING!! I told you so!! Whether you print it or not, there is a killer in Oakridge. And they killed my brother, he wasn't much to alot of people but he was all I had left. I wont stop

Happy Birthday Big Brother, We miss you and wish that someone would have helped us find you and bring you home. How would you have spent this b-day? Partying all day?! enjoying every minute of life.WE are sorry for leaving you in Oakridge,Forever!

Debbie says ... on Monday, Dec 29 at 9:26 AM

John's been missing for 4 months and Jan. 9th. would have been his 48th b-day, words cannot express how much I miss him.I TOLD everyone we weren't being helped, nothing..A trooper did stop me for not using my turn signal long enough,85ft.not 100ft.

Johnnie says ... on Friday, Dec 12 at 10:54 AM

I sure hope they find all of these people.. Hopefully so alive. I work with law enforcement in Forensic Medicine. Look around real good, you'd be surprised where someone might find someone... And it can be right under your nose.. Good outcome on all.

Debbie says ... on Wednesday, Nov 19 at 10:41 PM

We miss John very much, this will be be my first holiday w/o my family. My mother wouldn't have survived them without all her kids, this would have killed her if cancer hadn't.I know that he is dead, I know that the Oakridge police dept. is a pharse!

I am not sure if perhaps my private emails to you have been auto directed to the spam bin, but have you contacted CUE Center? You need 2 things to get their help: copy of police report and signed statement that you are requesting their help.

pattyanna says ... on Thursday, Oct 9 at 2:21 PM

I know there are people looking, we are searching daily. There are some places we cannot look, like airlines, trains, busses, thats where the help of law enforcement comes in. He may not want to be found. We even had a tech look at his hard drive.

pattyanna says ... on Thursday, Oct 2 at 8:06 PM

I did hear your brothers name mentioned by the Lane County Sheriff who was in our home today, please know that they are investigating your brothers disappearence as well. he said he gave some photos to a lady who thought she saw your brother.

pattyanna says ... on Thursday, Oct 2 at 1:46 PM

I hope you find your brother, still no sign of mine. We even have people checking airlines for us

Debbie says ... on Thursday, Oct 2 at 7:08 AM

We would like to plea with local residence of Oakridge to search there property, brushy areas, woody,water, ditches, John is in this town, or very close.Are you missing a small boat?Sheds. old buildings, PLEASE check them, so very thankful if you can

Patty says ... on Wednesday, Oct 1 at 7:30 PM

Hello, I am so sorry for what you are going through, we are going through the same thing here. We own B's Nursery on Hwy 58, close to goshen. My brother and business partner has been missing since Sunday, 9-28. Still no word, I hope you find him.

Debbie/Steve says ... on Wednesday, Oct 1 at 8:10 AM

Steve and I and few of our friends,Johns niece and brother-in-law, did our best to search for him, it was exhausting. But we are never going to give up. Our mother was the strongest woman we ever met, she was a fighter, She gives us her strenght.
