Manson graduate frantically searching for missing father
Manson High School graduate, Paul Doering is hoping Lake Chelan Mirror readers who are snowbirding in Yuma Arizona might be able to help find his father, Laurence "Jack" Doering, who went missing from Yuma, Ariz., on Jan. 17.
Yuma sheriff's deputies are out of leads.
"He has not been found and that is very concerning. There has been no trace of him or his vehicle," said Yuma County Sheriff's Department Captain Eben Bratcher Feb. 25.
"We've done everything possible we can think of and there is no sign of him."
Bratcher said the Yuma County Sheriff's Department scoured the area by road and by air with no results.
Doering is a former Manson High School coach, is 82 and is believed to suffer from Alzheimer's disease and may be confused or lost, said Paul Doering.
Doering, who does not usually drive, was last seen at about 9:45 a.m. on Jan. 17 driving a 2002 tan/grey Chevrolet Suburban with Idaho registration southbound on Foothill Boulevard in Yuma.
Bratcher said his department entered Doering and his vehicle into the National Crime Information Center database which, among other things, helps find missing people.
"If anyone comes into contact with him or pulls over that vehicle and runs the plates, they will learn that Doering is missing," he said.
Doering is 6-foot-1, weighs 170 pounds, has grey hair and blue eyes. Contact the Yuma County Sheriff's Department at 982-783-4427. Paul Doering graduated from Manson High School in 1982.
