According to a press release Monday, June 22, from Clearwater County Sheriff Chris Goetz, after searching for 11 days the Clearwater County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) has suspended the search for Gordon White, 78, of Orofino. The search involved not only Clearwater County Search and Rescue members but also many community members and other Search and Rescue Units from all over Idaho, Montana, Washington and Oregon.
“I would like to thank everyone that volunteered to help with the search and those that provided food and supplies for the searchers. There were several people that dropped everything else and came and helped search every day of the search. This case will remain open until Gordon is found,” reported Sheriff Goetz.
White has not been seen since Wednesday, June 10, at 4 p.m. when he went for a four-wheeler ride on his property at 7003 Dent Bridge Road. Friends and neighbors searched late that day for him. About 11 p.m. CCSO was contacted and further search effortswere conducted for several more days.
Gordon is six feet tall, weighs 170 pounds, and has gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a gray striped t-shirt and blue jeans. He has dementia which had recently gotten worse.
Anyone who may have any information is asked to call CCSO at 208-476-4521.
