While it is not unusual for Boughton to not contact his family for up to a week, family recently became concerned because Boughton failed to keep a monthly appointment. Further investigation revealed that Boughton had not been seen for approximately ten days. Boughton has no history of criminal activity. Because of his medical condition, Boughton may be mistaken for someone under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Boughton may also appear disoriented.
If Boughton is seen please call 9-1-1. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Mike Weinstein of the Portland Police Bureau Missing Persons Unit at (503) 823-0446.
UPDATE: Detectives have confirmed that Boughton likely took a cab from Portland to the Lincoln City area in mid-July. Boughton is believed to have been traveling alone at the time. It is unknown why Boughton may have left Portland, or why he may have traveled to the Oregon Coast. We have notified coastal law enforcement agencies of this information. Investigators have not been able to confirm additional reports that Boughton may have been seen in the Portland area as recently as 1-2 weeks ago. Boughton is still considered a missing/endangered person and there remains an ongoing investigation.
