UPDATE: Craig Hollowell Found Safe Thanks to News Coverage (Photo)

December 07, 2022 21:26


The Portland Police Bureau Missing Persons Unit was notified this evening that Craig Hollowell is safe in a local hospital. The medical staff saw news coverage of his missing status and informed us that he is being cared for. PPB checked with local hospitals as part of our protocol in a missing person case, but the hospital did not know that the name they had in their system was incorrect until they saw the news story. PPB is grateful for the help of our medical partners, the community for looking out for Craig, and for the news media for sharing this important information.



The Portland Police Bureau is requesting the public keep an eye out for a missing endangered man.

Craig Hollowell, 53 (photo), has not been seen by family since December 4th, 2022, at about 4:30p.m. Craig has health concerns and it is not believed that he is able to manage his own medications.

Craig is a Black male, 53 years of age, 6'4" in height, 170 lbs, balding on top with black and gray hair on the sides, and a mostly gray short-cropped goatee. He moves slowly and uses a walker. He may be wearing light colored denim pants and shirt, white Nike Air Jordans size 14. He suffered a stroke a couple of years ago and has a child-like demeanor when he is off of his prescribed medications. He will likely know his name but not his home address. He does not have a cell phone or money.

Craig lives in the Buckman Neighborhood, but also often stays with family in Montavilla neighborhood.

If anyone sees Craig, please call 911. If anyone has information about Craig that is not time sensitive, please e-mail missing@police.portlandoregon.gov .
