California Please help LOST UTV Rowher Flats

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, Long time no post, Please read below 

 

 

Sorry for text issue, But I do recall a UTV missing in Randsburg a couple of years ago, I spent 

day looking for and was found same day, Not good result

 

I trust this community if in the area, Please just keep a keen eye, The Agencies are not wanting public 

help, (Imagin that!) 

 

Thanks

 

Wayne

 

 

Tonight a spot-on offroader noticed this Blue Ford parked at Rowher Flats (Texas Canyon) at 7pm.

 

When he drove by again at 11pm he noticed that the truck was still sitting there. Concerned, He posted to an off-road FB page about his concern for whomever the truck belongs to. A few MAJOR easily noticed things stand out that tell you this guy didnt plan to be gone long.

His truck is parked in a "NO OVERNIGHT PARKING" area.

\
His ramps are still out.

Tie-down straps are still sitting in the trailer with one end connected.

His stuff isnt tidy or put away. 

There is a rack that goes into a hitch mount sitting next to the trailer.

There is a nice chain saw in the bed.

His truck is unlocked, windows cracked.

Camping gear in the bed of the truck.

Cold weather gloves on the passenger seat.

Syringes for possibly insulin on the front seat.

After looking everyhting over closly, its obvious that this guys truck has been sitting here a few days because there is rust spots on the brake discs.

NOBODY would leave there set up like this a few days for any reason. If your hiding from the police, you wouldnt leave your truck unlocked with valuable tools and equipment sitting in the back!

Its obvious that he is alone because there is stuff in all of the seats except the driver seat.

There is a Disabled placard hanging in the rearview mirror. NOTHING about this set up would say that this guy planned to be gone more that a few hours. The Sheriffs came out and said that there was nothing they could do.

What we did learn was, this guy doesnt have anyone that would or could report hhim missing. He doesnt have any family that he has regular contact with. Nobody would even know that this guy is missing.

Mark my words, THIS GUY IS MISSING and probably dead at the bottom of one ot the canyons. You will hear about it on the news in a few days I'm sure. This guy needs a voice. This guy needs someone to fine him out there in the canyons!!!

His name is Michael Skelton. He lived in Saugus. If you know Michael or anything about him, speak up. If you know what kind of OHV he had, speak up.

Someone knows this guy and someone needs to find him. Its below 30 degrees and windy as hell out there. Im hoping that someone from the offroad site puts together something to go look for him when the sun comes up.

A few of us will be riding Rowher tomorrow and will keep an eye out.  Was 12/14 verified, could he or a similar truck/trailer been spotted then . . . that's a long time for the truck to still be sitting there, rangers not noticing, things not being stolen, etc.

I'm also curious about the circumstances, like how long he was missing and where he ended up.  That place is busy enough it seems odd that an incapacitated rider or vehicle would go un-noticed for a long time.

Sad, may he rest in peace, hat's off to the OP for trying to help someone who truly needed it. We're all family out there and need to help each other out.

RIP un-known rider. Let this be a lesson to us all. Solo rides, we should leave a map and approximate ride location and time expected back in our vehicle. This could be good even for up to 3-riders. One goes down the other two try to help and get caught up, etc... Damn, not a good Christmas for the surviving Family. Hope he did not leave young Children behind.  Thanks for the help Wayne,
