Paul was last seen on a stand up paddle board yesterday (Friday July 3) at noon at The Hook (up at the Gorge) in calm windless waters. His paddle board was found floating in the river without him.

Paul is 5'4" - 5'5", tan, fit, dark hair (slightly thinning hair...). He was wearing a black baseball hat, sunglasses with red croakies, no shirt, white board shorts with big blue flowers (old navy). The shorts had a whistle and keys in the pockets.

The Sheriff was out yesterday with boats and a plane looking, and a boat today also. Please help us by keeping an eye out for him if you're out there!!

If you see, or know something please call the county sheriff's office 24 hour number at 541-386-2711, or call me at 415-244-5379.

thanks!
soheil

Hopes mixed with grim reminders knowing Pauly, he didn't take risks. Wish we could help look. Keep us posted.

Wow, I parked next to Paul at Crissy about two weeks ago. Met him for the first time after we both sailed. I overheard his conversation about the upcoming Gorge trip. Please keep us posted.

Update:

Low flying planes and boats are out there for a 3rd straight day today (Sunday July 5), combing the Columbia for Paul.

I understand that there was a very moving moment of silence held for him at Melissa and Ryan's wedding last night (he was up at the Gorge to attend this wedding...).

All of his friends up at the Gorge are helping with the search, canvassing the town with missing person fliers, getting the word out via the radio stations, local papers, etc.

Also calls have been pouring in to me via his friends and family. Paul has many, many, many friends and family. Charming, funny, gregarious and friendly; I've never known anybody with better people skills! I for one am still hopeful that by some miracle he's still out there somewhere alive and that we'll find him! Come back Paul! We miss you!!

Paul's a great guy with an infectious smile.
This is a shock and strange.
Hopefully his vehicle and his place has been secured so there is no foul play involved.
Hoping this turns for the best and Paul will be back at Crissy soon!
Here's a picture taken in May at Crissy with some of his sailing buddies.
Paul is second from left with his big smile!
Thank you to Soheilzahedi5 for the updates.
Please post as information becomes available.

Dear God hear our prayer as we pray for the safety and return of our beloved friend, Paul. We join together tonight in between worlds of hope and despair. At this difficult time, we reach out to you and to one another to weave a sukkat shalom, a shelter of peace and a tapestry of love. May we find comfort in each others presence as we pray for Paul. May the bonds of love and concern that we build this evening reach out to him. Holy One of Blessing, we pray that you protect him under the sheltering wings of Your Presence. And let us say, AMEN.
