UPDATE, 10/25: Police found Duncan’s body on Tuesday. No foul play is suspected.
Portland Police are looking for Brian Duncan, whose family says he’s been missing since yesterday (10/16) at 2:30 pm. He was last seen on his motorized wheelchair near the Duckworth Dock on the floating portion of the Eastbank Esplanade south of the Steel Bridge.
Duncan was paralyzed in March 2016 when he was hit while trying to bike across North Rosa Parks Way. In January we reported that Duncan’s friends and family had rallied around him to build a new, ADA-accessible house.
Duncan is 38 years old and is described as 6-feet tall, about 190 pounds with brown hair, a brown beard and blue eyes. Police also say he’s known to wear blue wire-framed glasses.
A police statement issued this afternoon added that, “Duncan’s family is concerned for his welfare. There are no indications that his disappearance involves foul play.”
If you see Brian please call 911. Anyone with non-emergency information should contact PPB Detective Lori Fonken at 503-823-1081, Lori.Fonken@portlandoregon.gov or firstname.lastname@example.org.
