Sawyer was last seen at a remote campground in the Flamingo area at Everglades National Park in Monroe County, Florida on March 5, 2011. He is from Oregon and had taken a cross-country trip with his family in a motor home. Some of Sawyer’s relatives went to the Visitors Center, leaving Sawyer and his wife behind. Sawyer and his wife were in different areas of the campground at the time. He was last seen at the beach at approximately 6:00 p.m. By 8:30 p.m., everyone had returned to the motor home except him, and his loved ones alerted authorities. He has never been heard from again.

An extensive search of the area turned up no indication of Sawyer’s whereabouts, and it isn’t clear whether he became lost or if something else caused his disappearance. His family describes him as an experienced outdoorsman. His case remains unsolved.
