Latest Missing Person Photos for Missing Richard Emanuel Lawrence

Lawrence, circa 1986

Missing Since 02/28/1986

Missing From
Classification Endangered Missing

Sex Male

Race Black

Date of Birth Used 07/12/1922 (98)

Age 63 years old

Height and Weight 5'0, 125 pounds

Clothing/Jewelry Description A black knee-length fur coat, a white shirt, a tie, a black Russian-type hat and size 5 dress shoes.

Medical Conditions Lawrence suffered from a heart attack a year before his disappearance and he wore a pacemaker as a result. He had also experienced several bouts of memory loss. He was depressed over the state of his health and may have been suicidal.

Distinguishing Characteristics African-American male. Black hair, brown eyes. Lawrence wears black-rimmed eyeglasses. The right lens is a prescription lens, and the left is plain glass.

Lawrence may have been confused at the time. At 5:00 p.m. on the second day of the conference, he left the hotel to get gas for his car and never returned.

There was no sign of Lawrence at the scene and an extensive search turned up no indication of his whereabouts, although two witnesses reported seeing a man matching his description on the logging road on February 28. The man didn't indicate he was in need of assistance.

His wife theorized he picked up a ride from a passing motorist in Vader and was taken out of the area, but a private detective hired by the family believes Lawrence died somewhere within five miles of where he left his car. He was declared legally dead in 1987. His case remains unsolved.
