Paul was last seen on a stand up paddle board yesterday (Friday July 3) at noon at the Hook in calm windless waters. His paddle board was found floating in the river without him.

Paul is 5'4" - 5'5", tan, fit, dark hair (slightly thinning hair...). He was wearing a black baseball hat, sunglasses with red croakies, no shirt, white board shorts with big blue flowers (old navy). The shorts had a whistle and keys in the pockets.

The Sheriff was out yesterday with boats and a plane looking, and a boat today also. Please help us by keeping an eye out for him if you're out there!!

If you see, or know something please call the county sheriff's office 24 hour number at 541-386-2711, or call me at 415-244-5379.

thanks!
soheil

Just read the news about Paul and we're stunned. Are there any updates? Anything the Crissy crew can do?

Update:

Low flying planes and boats are out there for a 3rd straight day today (Sunday July 5), combing the Columbia for Paul.

I understand that there was a very moving moment of silence held for him at Melissa and Ryan's wedding last night (he was up at the Gorge to attend this wedding...).

All of his friends up at the Gorge are helping with the search, canvassing the town with missing person fliers, getting the word out via the radio stations, local papers, etc.

Also calls have been pouring in to me via his friends and family. Paul has many, many, many friends and family. Charming, funny, gregarious and friendly; I've never known anybody with better people skills! I for one am still hopeful that by some miracle he's still out there somewhere alive and that we'll find him! Come back Paul! We miss you!!

Paul's a great guy with an infectious smile.
This is a shock and strange.
Hopefully his vehicle and his place has been secured so there is no foul play involved.
Hoping this turns for the best and Paul will be back at Crissy soon!
Here's a picture taken in May at Crissy with some of his sailing buddies.
Paul is second from left with his big smile!
Thank you to Soheilzahedi5 for the updates.
Please post as information becomes available.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Soy, Reggie and I have created a blog that will give the most current and accurate information. Check out the blog here: http://paulmann.typepad.com. Don't you think Paul would LOVE the fact that we were blogging about him? Smile

Please forgive us there is some lag time between post.....we will do our best to keep all his friends and family updated.

Please keep Paul in your prayers as the search continues. I want my "Boo" back and will not give up until we find him.

Jensen Beach is a new launch site that is between the Event Site and the Hook. http://www.gorgeonline.com/windsurfing/windsurfing.loc.htm. The launch right in front of Northwave Sail.

As the search for Paul continues, I think it would be very special if we can all get together tomorrow at 7:30pm to share in a moment of silence and to help focus our thoughts on getting Paul the help he needs. So many of you have reached out and asked what you can do to help and now we need you to act. Our intention is to bridge the cap between Hood River, San Francisco and any other place you may be on this earth.

San Francisco - Crissy Field
Bring a candle, a cigar, a guitar, a bong, a bottle of wine, beer, a picture of Paul or whatever you feel would be appropriate to help pray/channel your energy to get Paul back to us.

Meet at Crissy Field for a moment of silence at 7:30pm. Tell your friends and family to join you - we really need all the help and support we can get.

Hood River - The Hook
Bring a candle, a cigar, a guitar, a bong, a bottle of wine, beer, a picture of Paul or whatever you feel would be appropriate to help pray/channel your energy to get Paul back to us.

Meet at the Hook for a moment of silence at 7:30pm. Tell your friends and family to join you - we really need all the help and support we can get.

Other Locations
Where ever you are at 7:30pm, please join us in a moment of silence. It does not matter if you are near or far, you can still help in the efforts.

You are encouraged to pass this information to those who may not see this post. If you have any questions or comments, please post them on thttp://paulmann.typepad.com.

Soheil will be at Crissy Field and Reggie and Michell be be at the hook. See you all tomorrow.........We will get Paul back to us soon.

Thank you so much for helping!
