Tracey Linkous sent out an e-mail this morning regarding an unusual missing persons case, which I feel compelled to reproduce here. Owen Young — who is known locally for his involvement with the Rotary Club, the Unitarian Church, the Company of Friends, the United Way, the Chamber of Commerce, volleyball coaching and lots of other stuff — has been missing since January 1st. Friends, family and police are trying to find out what’s going on, of course. Keep reading for Tracey’s full e-mail to get more information, and you can also see a picture of Owen.

Subject: Have you seen Owen Young?
This is not a “Where’s Waldo”, but indeed an earnest request for information to the whereabouts of Owen Young based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many of his friends and family are concerned as he has not been seen or heard from since January 1, which is highly unusual. No return phone calls from home/work or cell, no return emails, he has missed appointments, and his neighbors have not seen him recently.
The Albemarle County police are now involved, and together we are searching for information from anyone who can help us find Owen. Through this grassroots effort, we are hoping to learn he is okay.
Owen drives a burgundy/dark red VW Passat with the license plate VACoach. He Is involved in a local chapter of the Rotary, Unitarian Church, Charlottesville Company of Friends, United Way Board, International Coaching Federation, National Center for Non Profit Boards, Girls Volleyball Coaching through Albemarle County, the Charlottesville Fatherhood Initiative, the Chamber of Commerce, and many other groups.
We would sincerely appreciate any information any one can offer to help us locate Owen. Attached is a picture of Owen. I can be reached at the following numbers: 434-817-2394 / 434-242-5886 / 434-974-1557. And via email at mailto:Tracey@caar.com.
