Camas man vanishes; police looking for help from public

CAMAS, Wash. -- Police are asking the public's help in finding a 57-year-old man who has been missing since earlier this week.

Camas resident Christopher Michael Kane was reported missing by his family members Dec. 7. Kane, who lives and works in the Camas area, was last seen by co-workers during the late morning hours on Dec. 5 and has not been seen or heard from since.

Family and friends describe Kane as a highly reliable, professional man, who follows a very predictable schedule, and have said it is unheard of that he would fail to show for personal and professional appointments.

Kane owns a boat that is moored at a Hayden Island Marina in North Portland. His truck was found parked at the marina, and has been recovered by police as a part of the investigation. Detectives have also searched the boat, as well as Kane's home, with the family's cooperation and have said there is no evidence of foul play. However, Kane's disappearance is being investigated as highly unusual.

Kane is described as a white male, who is 5-foot-10 and weighs 160 pounds. He is usually clean-shaved, with short, salt and pepper hair. He has brown eyes and wears glasses. His clothing description is unknown.

Anyone who knows of Kane's whereabouts is asked to immediately call 9-1-1.

Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Camas Police Department spokesperson Sergeant Chuck Nadgwick at 360-817-1521.
