    A friend contacted me to let me know his Uncle went missing over the weekend and asked if I could help get the word out. Specific trip plans/destination is unknown, but the assumption is he was headed east towards Winthrop since his last cell phone ping put him somewhere near Rockport, WA around 3pm on Saturday. They have not had any contact with him since.

    Bike is a 2010 BMW K1300GT, with plate number 5B1787. I don't have many specifics on riding gear other than "all black".

    If you see the bike, please contact 206-919-5028. Thanks

    As stated a couple posts earlier, unfortunately not a happy ending for this one. My friend texted not too long after I originally posted and confirmed he was found off the road.

    Ride safe out there. Coming home is the best part of any trip.
