ROSEBURG, Ore. — Detectives from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office are renewing the call for information about a man who went missing in 1995.
Curtis Dale Hill was reported missing on February 12 of 1995. Though the Sheriff's Office says that they conducted an extensive investigation into his disappearance, Hill was never located "and the circumstances of his disappearance remain limited."
“It has been 26 years since he disappeared. Someone out there has information; and we just need them to come forward to help us bring a sense of peace to his family,” said Detective Kevin Dodds.
In 2009, the Cold Case Squad — a former division of the Sheriff's Office made up of retired law enforcement officers who volunteered their time reviewing cases — re-opened Hill's case, talking to friends and family in an attempt to glean more information. The attempt did not turn up any viable leads.
“The Sheriff’s Office never closes a missing person case where the person has not been located. The cases remain open and are periodically reviewed and efforts to glean additional information are made,” said Sgt. Brad O’Dell.
Detectives at the Sheriff's Office did more work on the case in 2011 and 2012, again to no avail. DCSO says that it is once more going over the investigative files and asking for help from the public.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Curtis Dale Hill or the circumstances surrounding his disappearance is asked to call the DCSO Detectives Tip Line at (541) 957-2099 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org referencing Case #95-0845.
