On February 20, 2004, a man who claimed to be Askew, told an emergency dispatcher in Tillamook County he fell into the ocean. A search by land, air, and sea, revealed a truck belonging to Askew. Authorities found the truck near a trailhead at Neahkahnie Mountain, near Manzanita, but did not find Askew. He checked out of a hotel in Cannon Beach earlier the same day.
On Tuesday, February 24, 2004, police in Hillsboro found a van belonging to Askew, at a motel where he was registered. He was last seen at the motel on the same day the call to Tillamook emergency dispatch came in.
