Missing Robert Donald Linton
Robert, circa 1986; The Lintons' truck
Missing Since 08/22/1986
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 02/23/1924 (97)
Age 62 years old
Height and Weight 5'10 - 5'11, 170 - 180 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, blue eyes. Robert wears eyeglasses and a hearing aid.
They stopped at the Naco West Campground in Brinnon on the Hood Canal, unhooked their travel trailer, and drove off in their truck for a day trip to Mount Baker, Washington. They never returned and have not been seen since.
Police believe the Lintons were killed by Charles Thurman Sinclair, who robbed and killed approximately thirteen people, mostly coin dealers. Sinclair's handwriting matched the signature on receipts of items purchased with Robert and Dagmar's credit cards after their disappearances, and some of the purchases were recovered in his storage shed.
Sinclair was never charged in connection with the Lintons' cases. He was arrested on unrelated charges in Alaska in August 1990, but he died in October of that year before he could be tried.
Dagmar and Robert have never been located.
