BEND, OR -- Bend Police are asking for the public's help to find a 60-year-old man missing since last week. According to investigators, a cab dropped off John Love in front of his house on St. Cloud Court, near Boyd Acres Road, between 2:30 and 3:30 a.m., Wednesday. He hasn't seen or heard from since. A family member reported him missing Saturday morning. He was last seen wearing a green jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

 

Love is a retired Bend Fire engineer who worked for the agency from 1996 to 2002; he also served as a volunteer coordinator, from 2014 to 2016. Anyone with information on his location is asked to call non-emergency police dispatch at 541-693-6911.

 

UPDATE: Bend Police say the body of John Love was discovered Monday afternoon. Deschutes County Search and Rescue deployed 27 searchers and Sheriff’s Office personnel to help Bend Police look for Love, at about 2 p.m. After about 2.5 hours of searching, two human-scent K9 teams found Love’s body near 18th and Cooley, inside a large hole in a construction site; his body was covered in snow. 

 

Bend PD is working with the District Attorney’s Office and Medical Examiner to determine cause of death.
