News Release
Unidentified male found deceased in Columbia River (Photo) - 09/25/18

The Clatsop County Medical Examiner, in coordination with the Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office, would like ask the public for any information that may help identify a man found deceased in the Columbia River on September 21, 2018.  This man was most likely last seen in early September on the Washington side of the Columbia.  We don’t currently have any missing person reports that match this man’s description.  Also, we do not have an ID, keys, or any personal effects that could help us make identification.  Our hope is by putting this out there, someone will think to check on their neighbors or friends that may be missing. Please look through the following descriptors and information:


Approximately 60 year old male, unknown ethnicity

He is about 5-7, 160 lbs.

Dark hair 5 inches in length in the back, may have frontal balding

Brown eyes

No upper teeth (he may wear a plate)
