Gary Patton - Updated Jan. 5, 2015


The search is on for Gary Patton who was last seen at Jardines Hotel (San Quintin) onSept.3rd and 4th, 2013 and indicated to staff there that he might be returning that Sunday.

He has not been seen since altho there have been possible sightings in CampoRene and Punta Abreojos (fishing tournament).

Flyers have been posted between the border and La Bocana, CABOMAGIC kindly posted the pic right away.
There has been a missing person report filed in the USA
The American consulate has been notified.
The Mexican navy has been notified since Gary had a red surfboard and wanted to surf (he is not an avid surfer).

Flyers are at gas stations, checkpoints and in stores. Please print some up if you can post somewhere.

Gary is tall, quite thin and a talker. He recently started drinking a little, which does not work well with his meds, this may be affecting his ability to rationalize - THIS IS CONJECTURE as we do not know if he is still drinking. He is not an avid fisherman either...he just loves Baja, the people, the views.....He does not use plastic, he has enough cash to last him awhile.

------------------------------------------------------------
MY ORIGINAL POST:

His brother contacted me and they are very concerned! If he is at your hotel or if you see him please tell him to contact his brother. They plan on heading to San Quintin tomorrow to ask around...that was his last known location.

Thanks.....

Actually, in rereading their email to me, Gary was headed south without a set destination ....he could be anywhere BUT he told them he would be home on the 8th. And he isn't.

A name is a damned difficult thing to determine. A person could spot 800 gringo males and what the hell does a "Gary Patton" look like? I don't remember or count how many "Be On The Lookout For" requests I see on Mexico forums and a small minority of them have even the faintest description appendages. Is it laziness? I don't know.

My name is Jenn Patton, I am Dave and Molly's daughter. I am sending you a couple pictures of my Uncle Gary (Patton) and his vehicle that he is driving. He hasn't been heard from since last Wednesday when he arrived at Jardines Hotel in San Quintin.. He is driving a 2002 Toyota 4 Runner, Silver with a heavy duty roof rack.. He mentioned to my dad that he wanted to go see the whale sharks in Bahia de los Angeles.

It's pretty easy to get caught up in the fun of it all down here. We've seen it before.
Hope he's OK.

Blanca do you know if he was traveling alone and if he is a baja guy who has his usual spots? I posted the info on facebook and on folks in BOLA's page too and several have shared it around.
