Dane DavisWashington County Sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's help to find a missing Aloha man who is believed to be in danger due to health issues.

Dane Davis, 66, disappeared on Thursday, Oct. 20. Deputies were called to his home on Southwest Cornelius Road and West Baseline at about 3 p.m., Thursday after a caretaker reported that they had neither seen nor heard from Davis for three days,

Davis' family and neighbors hadn't heard from the man in days, either, and when deputies arrive at Davis' home they reportedly found it unlocked and unoccupied, with Davis' vehicle was still in the garage, according to Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jeff Talbot.

Davis, who reportedly has dementia, can become confused and it is sometimes difficult for him to find his way home. Davis cannot care for himself and deputies said that there are concerns that he may be unable to keep himself safe.

Davis is described as a black man standing 5-feet-6-inches call. He has salt and pepper facial hair and a heavy build. Davis was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans and is known to wear clothing with logos for the Oakland Raiders professional football team.

Deputies said that Davis might be seen riding MAX or other forms of public transit.

The Sheriff's Office is asking that anyone with information about Davis' whereabouts calls 503-629-0111.
