EUGENE, Ore. -- The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who may have been involved in a crash near Florence on Friday.

Patrick Stapp, 58, of Florence was reported missing Monday. Officials said Stapp had plans with a friend Friday evening and did not show up, which his family said is unusual.

Stapp is white, 6 feet tall, about 165 pounds and has short brown hair and brown eyes. He also has a short beard and mustache.

Officials said a 1991 Toyota Camry went off the road near Sutton Lake Road Nov. 30. The vehicle went down an embankment.

No one was inside the car when it was found, but white hair, believed to be animal hair, was found inside. Paperwork inside the vehicle indicates that Stapp may have been the driver.

In a search of the area, a deputy saw a man, possibly Stapp, with a dog, but the man quickly walked off the roadway and over the edge of the embankment through brush. The man was walking near the water at the bottom of the embankment when the deputy lost sight of him.

Stapp’s dog has since been found safe. 

If you have seen Stapp or know where he is, call 541-682-4141.
