Charlie Dowd search continues between Fort Morgan, Colorado and McCook, Nebraska

Retired San Francisco firefighter, Charlie Dowd is still missing. Dowd was on a travel adventure from the SF Bay Area to Montreal to visit family. He did get off the train for smoke breaks and a fellow Amtrak passenger caught a image of Charlie (below).  He was wearing a Brown Princess Cruises Brisbane Australia t-shirt, grey camouflage cargo pants and white sneakers with Velcro straps, glasses and a grey bucket hat. This was the last known contact with Charlie.

Charlie may be disoriented as his medications, along with luggage and cell phone arrived in Chicago already on 9/14 without him. The medications he was suppose to be taking could cause him to be disoriented if not taken.

The family has been out looking for Charlie along the Amtrak route he would have taken. Their current focus is everywhere between Fort Morgan, Colorado and McCook, Nebraska.

Dowd was on the California Zephyr Train #6 from Emeryville, CA to Chicago. Pickups happened in Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and Nebraska. Below is the schedule of stops.

Update an hour ago (3:15 Central Time): The family is in Ft. Morgan, CO working with the Amtrak PD. The PD is coordinating search efforts in Eastern Colorado to Western Nebraska. The West Coast team is re-contacting hospitals and shelters in towns where the Zephyr stopped between Ft. Morgan and Naperville, IL. We appreciate the continued support from this extended community and ask that you continue to share this page to help us find Charlie. (missing person flyer and train route are in the photos)
