The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help locating Donald Penrod, a missing 79-year-old man who walked away from Delta Campground yesterday, August 20th, around 4 pm and has not been seen since.
Donald and his wife have been camping for several weeks and he has left their campsite alone before but always returned a short time later.  When he didn’t return late last night, his wife contacted officials.  Lane County Search and Rescue searched the area yesterday and found no signs of Donald’s whereabouts.  Linn County Search and Rescue also assisted with their search K9s.
Donald is described as a 79-year-old white male, 6 feet tall and weighing about 195 pounds.  He has gray hair, blue eyes, and was last seen wearing a plaid shirt, black denim shorts, and navy blue Sketcher shoes.
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office would like anyone who has seen Donald since yesterday at 4:00 pm or knows his whereabouts to call 541-682-4141.

LCSO mapUpdating Lane County’s computer aided dispatch system had the unexpected side effect of blocking easy access to reports on calls for police services. November 19th of 2013 marked the last time the public could find information about when and where the Lane County Sheriff’s Office was responding to things like robberies, harassment or traffic accidents.
Last week the Sheriff’s Office launched a new Crime Mapping/ Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) Public Log. The system allows both the media and the public to have a short report on what’s occurred. In addition, the Sheriff’s Office can now provide McKenzie River Reflections with the more detailed reports that have been part of the newspaper for years, according to publisher Ken Engelman.
