The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the disappearance of a missing Portland man last seen at 11:45 AM on Sunday, 7 September after Deputies contacted him for a motorist assist at approximately mile post 17 on the Washougal River Road in rural Skamania County. Authorities are continuing to request the public’s assistance in locating Joseph Ronald Sizemore, 42, from Portland, Oregon.
Sizemore has been missing for 2 weeks and his whereabouts are unknown. He does not have medication that he requires for mental issues. Authorities would like the public to know that Sizemore’s mental state may be disoriented or fearful of public contact. Sizemore is believed to have little or no money.
At the time of officer contact, Sizemore was driving a 2009 Ford Focus, red in color with an Oregon trip permit in the back window, with no vehicle plates. At the end of being contacted by Deputies, Sizemore indicated that he was going back to his residence on NE Halsey in Portland. According to family members, Sizemore never returned.
“Detectives are continuing to follow up on any leads that are provided to us”, said Chief Criminal Deputy Pat Bond. “We are seeking the help of the citizens of the Northwest in locating Mr. Sizemore”.
Sizemore is a white male adult, 5’09” and 275 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. A photo is included with this release, as well as a photo of a similar vehicle. Sizemore has been entered as a Missing Endangered person because of his mental status.
If anyone has seen Sizemore, they are requested to contact the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office at (509) 427-9490 extension 0, or call 9-1-1.
