    In this report,it says his vehicle”may have” been left unattended in the Buttermilk area…Don’t understand what that means…Was the Jeep just found,or was it found before the missing person report was made?..Or was it seen,and then tied to the missing person report?…Also,is that a mug-shot photo?..If so,might it be someone that is pulling a fast one to dodge a charge or prison time?..Was he a hiker,and maybe fallen off one of those formations out there in the Buttermilks?..interesting….Hope he is found OK…
