Title: PLEASE READ & SHARE!!! Searching for a missing person! A fellow off-roader!
Post by: pinchel (Rob) on November 07, 2014, 10:12:50 AM
A fellow off-road enthusiast, Jason Corneveaux, and an acquaintance of mine. Went missing on his own on 11/5, and having a hard time. So if you are out there keep an eye out and let authorities or my friend Mitch know if you see him. He secluded himself but more than likely just needs a friend right now.

His vehicle is: 2004 Toyota Tacoma, Tan, Lifted. License Plate 0AH8765

He goes by the handle caddymob

Mitch's cell is 602-652-2944

This was something Jason posted on twitter 11/4 http://www.strava.com/routes/1127163 (http://www.strava.com/routes/1127163)

Here's an OP, my buddy Mitch posted (he's a jeeper) -> http://www.virtualjeepclub.com/showthread.php?85363-My-buddy-is-Missing-Can-y-all-please-keep-an-eye-out

Here is the most up to date info:

This is the most up to date Information we have gathered since 11/5:

We are trying to get help with Civil Air Patrol. Our local detective has been my biggest road block. An ATL was sent out, but some of the counties and forestry services didn't receive it. This state's system has serious glitches. The ATL only lasts 3 days.

To some, this is redundant. I am sorry.

He is not a danger to anyone but himself. He left with a suicide note. If law enforcement is involved, please beware he has a plan for suicide by cop. He requested his ashes be scattered at Coyote Gulch, but also to donate his body to science. In order to do that, he needs to be close to society for preservation. He is not thinking clearly. If he had a "come to Jesus" talk with himself, he would already be home. Those who know him well, think he is spending the next week or two to get lost in his favorite parts of the world to say goodbye. He is a brilliant man with behavioral health issue and unbelievable survival skills. He is a neurological geneticist, landscape photographer (primarily Southern Utah), a river rafter and an avid outdoorsman.

Areas that have been covered aside from N. AZ and Northern UT:

Areas to look:
N. AZ & Lower Utah. Some of these areas have been covered already by rescue, I am just not sure which ones.
2004 Tan Toyota Tacoma, plate # 0AH8765. No shell on it. My number 480-703-0852.
Potential sighting on Thursday (guy didn't know he was missing yet) on White Pocket Vermillion Cliffs. We have 10 pictures of that area in our house and it is a drop in spot for rafting the Colorado in the Grand Canyon. His river trip on the Colorado was one of his most special, memorable trips.

His favorite areas in random order:
Zion: Subway, Radiator
Coyote Buttes
Coyote Gulch
Jacob Hamblin Arch
Hunt's Mesa
Starry Gulch

Canyonlands:
Elephant Canyon
Druid Overlook/Arch
Fire Butte
The Needles
Newspaper Rock
Monument Valley - Smokey Mountain Rd. - camped here a few weeks ago
Subway Canyon - less likely. He doesn't like the boring walk in
Brown's Peak
La Sal Mountain
Mesa Verde

Capital Reef:
Fruita
Upper Cathedral Valley
Devil's Garden
Metate Arch
Tense of the Moon
Hell's Backbone Rd.

Ground Staircase Escalante:
Hackberry Creek
Grosvenor Arch
Burr Trail
Upper Maley Twist Dbl Arch
Route 24
San Rafael Badlands
Molly's Castle
Gooseberry Towers
White Rim Trail

UPDATE ON COVERED AND NEEDED SEARCH AREAS

 COVERED:
South UT and Upper AZ covered with vehicle and aerial search and rescue
Cave Creek, Sheeps Crossing, Bartlett Lake, Seven Springs covered by vehicle and aerial
Mogollon Rim is mostly covered, but extra vehicle support is huge. Our hidden spots are about 5 miles past Strawberry on the Northeast side of the rim. He has 4x4 and loves to go off the beaten path.
All AZ Agencies and Forest Service on alert and looking. He is on a national missing persons list.

PENDING: All may have locked in Aerial searches within a couple of hours. Vehicles searching is equally important. Please feel free to get to get your 4x4 and cruise.

The Superstitions - Jason loves Lake Roosevelt and the view on the east side of the Superstitions toward Rose Ranch. The deputies are searching trailheads and parking lots, but that is it.

The White Mountains
The Chiricahuas
Petrified Forest

He is wearing olive green carhartt pants, t-shirt, camel tan carhartt jacket and a black beanie. He has full sleeve tattoos. He has a shaved head and short scruffy beard. See comment section for photos.

The police have strict rules for PINGing his phone. His case doesn't fit the guidelines. Mexico is out of the questions. Didn't take his passport. Only withdrew $200 and there are no transactions. His phone has been off since 11/5.

2004 Tan Toyota Tacoma. Plate # 0AH8765

Update:

Anyone who has a license and access to a helicopter?

Most areas have been cleared. The main area of focus at this point is northern AZ and lower UT. We have the local authorities searching since 11PM last night by car and chopper. Key areas start in the Vermillion Cliffs, N. AZ to Grand Staircase Escalante, Coyote Gulch, Monument Valley. I am waiting on the crew to come back from the Rim, but the other areas have been cleared (for the most part).

In Utah,  it is the local authorities but my friend Mitch is coordinating local which has been more or less cleared.

Update: Jason has been located. Thanks for sharing and spreading the word. The family has been asked to respect their privacy. I am sure details will come out in the media, all I know and can say is that he will be missed.
