    Exclamation Rider Missing - Lolo Pass to W. Yellowstone

We have reason to believe he may have gone missing Monday (he was due into Denver Wednesday). He was riding a black 2008 Goldwing, Colorado Plate #327-UTH.

    If you are riding Lolo Pass, or anywhere between Missoula and W. Yellowstone, please be on the lookout for Donald and his bike. He's 62 years old, weighs about 175 and is about 5'9" tall. His bike would have been loaded with a fair amount of gear as he was on a 2+ week trip. If you have seen him or have information about him or his bike, anyone with information or concerns call me at 509-240-0178, or my wife (Donald's sister) at 509-240-0177.

    Thank you for your concern and help.

    This is a picture of him on the silver Goldwing he owned before getting the black 'Wing earlier this year:

    UPDATE!


    Re-post from ADV Riders:



    Re: Search for Donald Masters of Orofino, ID 9/12/2009
    LostBrit posted this:
    I just heard back from Clearwater chief of police, they confirm a report was made and an initial investigation that confirms the CC usage in Lolo.

    They also report a subsequent check and CC usage at Fay Meyers (Honda MC dealer) in Denver on 8th Sept.

    The detective assigned to the case is supposed to call me in the morning, I will post a further update then.

    Hope he's okay. I do a lot of solo miles and carry Spot on the bike so family and close friends can track me. It lessens the concern all around.

    Was reading on ADVRider that he never made it to the KOA just west of Yellowstone. There was a traffic cam in Darby, MT that showed him passing southbound on 93 around 1630 on the 31st. Nothing since. No phone calls, no credit card usage, nothing. damn.

    That is why I own a SPOT tracker.

    I hope he is found safe and sound, but the longer it goes, the less the chances of a happy outcome.

    Did you read all of the posts in the topic ?
    Its in the Regional area under the Rockies.
    I have read that thread and it suggests that the cc charge was a automatic charge on a pre-orderd part that he was going to pick up.

    Exclamation Bozeman Area Montana

    I just sent an email and text out to area people I know that are usually out in and around the Bozeman area that may see him. He may have rerouted through here which leads to West Yellowstone. Worth putting out there.

    Hope he is okay, keep us all posted. My thoughts are with you.
